Procedure for Domestic Arrivals

Take Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport as an example. It only serves as a reference for other airports. The specific requirements for different airports are subject to the regulations specified by the local airport.


After entering the terminal building, you can refer to the signs to the Baggage Claim Hall.


Make sure you get all your personal belongings before leaving the plane.
  • There are two Arrival Halls: The Arrival Hall is located at the first floor of Western Corridor (B Zone) (Security Point B1, B2 and B3, respectively)
  • Arrival Hall is located at the first floor of Eastern Corridor (A Zone) (Security Point A2).
  • Baggage Claim:

    Baggage Claim Hall is located on the first floor, whose entrance is equipped with a baggage carousel screen. Please find the right carousel corresponding to your flight number. Please check your baggage tag to avoid collecting wrong baggage. After collecting your baggage, please show the baggage tag to the officers at the exit door. It is required to check your collected baggage and the baggage tag before you leave the baggage claim area. Please consult the officers at the exit door for any baggage enquiries (e.g. lost and damaged baggage).

    Kindly Reminder:

    • Please check your baggage tag to avoid collecting wrong baggage.
    • Please carefully check whether the baggage has been damaged.
    • If your baggage tag is lost, you can find the officers at the exit door to check the items in the bags. After they are confirmed and signed, you can collect your baggage.
