年终岁尾和春节期间，各类诈骗活动愈发猖獗。切记不要轻信“转账汇款” “中奖” “涉嫌洗钱” “航班/火车班次取消、改签、退票” “网购退款”等各类诈骗短信和电话。在接到自称公检法或客服来电时，一定要保持冷静, 应通过官方渠道进行求证。网络购物购票时，要选择正规的官方网站，一定要警惕那些在交易之前先交纳“保证金、押金、风险金”等各种名目的诱导诈骗，交易时注意钱货两讫，切勿在未收到货物时提前付款。不要点击不明链接，慎扫来源不明的二维码。当被要求汇款或提供账户信息时，更要提高警惕，不向陌生人汇款，不向任何人泄露银行卡密码、信用卡安全码、短信验证码等关键信息。
Dear international students,
At present in Beijing, the Winter Olympics and the annual Chinese Spring Festival are approaching and students are already enjoying their winter vacation. In order to ensure the safety of teachers and students, safe campus environment, and safe Winter Olympics, we urge you to read the following safety tips carefully and follow them accordingly.
Ⅰ. Ensure that your passport and visa are legal and valid
Ensure your passport and visa are legal and valid. Internships can be carried out only after the residence permit is annotated. International students who have completed their studies and graduated should apply for suspension of their residence permit before leaving the university. We warn you to strictly avoid visa overstay and illegal residence.
For relevant instructions on visa procedures, please refer to the website of the International Students Division: https://www.isd.pku.edu.cn/info/1209/6607.htm

Ⅱ. Earnestly implement the epidemic prevention and control procedures
At present, the spread of the pandemic is accelerating abroad, and clustered epidemics have appeared in many places in China, and the Omicron variant brings greater risks. We must deal with the situation seriously, tighten the string of epidemic prevention, and report relevant issues in a timely manner.
1) Avoid going to medium/high risk areas.
It is prohibited to travel to prefecture-level cities (municipalities directly under the central Government and sub-provincial cities are their districts and counties) and counties (cities, districts and banners) where land border ports are located where there has been one or more COVID-19 cases within 14 days.
2) Build up habits of daily precaution.
Maintain good habits such as wearing masks, washing hands frequently, ventilation and avoiding gatherings; stock, use masks, disinfect and use other protective means. Reduce cross-city movement, pay close attention to the pandemic situation, and comply with pandemic prevention policies and territorial control requirements.
3) Timely report "changes" and "movements" in status
If there are any suspected COVID-19 symptoms, please report to the corresponding department/school and the International Students Division immediately. International students are required to report their status monthly at least once in the "Epidemic Prevention and Control" module of the Study in China Assistant app before the 25th of every month (please update the information immediately if there is any status change or vaccination).
If you have any plans to leave campus or Beijing, you are required to fill in the questionnaire " Registration on the Departure of International Students from Peking University (Beijing) During the Winter Holiday of 2022”.
International students participating in Winter Olympics activities should strictly abide by the relevant control requirements.
Ⅲ. Avoid "low, slow and small" flight activities
According to the Notice of Beijing Municipal Public Security Bureau on Strengthening the Management of "Low, Slow and Small" Aircraft in Beijing during the Beijing 2022 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games in Beijing", from 00:00 on January 28, 2022 to 24:00 on March 13 , during the period, within the administrative region of Beijing, all units, organizations and individuals are prohibited from using "low, slow and small" aircraft such as drones and "traversing aircraft" for sports, entertainment, advertising flight activities and ballooning activities.
Ⅳ. Pay attention to travel safety
When traveling, make sure to put personal safety first. Get train tickets or plane tickets through official channels, and don't trust intermediaries with unknown credibility. When taking a taxi, choose a regular vehicle with complete operating procedures, and please refuse to take an overloaded, overcrowded or illegally operated vehicle. Use online ride-sharing carefully, choose a known online ride-sharing platform, confirm that the license plate information is consistent with that on the platform, and share the itinerary with relatives and friends who can be contacted in time. When traveling at night, opt for public transportation or choose a taxi. It is best to have company and avoid travelling alone. During the trip, always pay attention to the safety of personal belongings like valuables and important documents, and prevent theft or loss. Students with a driver's license must consciously abide by the traffic rules, pay attention to driving safety, and must not drive under the influence of alcohol, any kind of intoxication, fatigue, or speeding.
Ⅴ. Avoid telecom fraud
At the end of the year and during the Spring Festival, all kinds of fraud activities become more rampant. Remember not to trust "transfer remittance" "lottery winning" "suspected money laundering" "flight/train cancellations, changes, refund" "online refund" and other fraudulent messages and phone calls. When receiving a call from the public security law or customer service, be sure to remain calm and verify through official channels. When buying tickets online, make sure to choose a formal known official website. Be vigilant against fraudulent scams by paying "guarantee deposits, deposits, and risk funds" before trading; Pay attention to both money and goods during transaction; Do not pay in advance in the case of not receiving goods or in doubt. Do not click on unknown links, and scan QR codes with unknown sources carefully. When asked to send money or to provide account information, be more vigilant, do not send money to strangers, and do not disclose key information such as bank card passwords, credit card security codes, SMS verification codes to anyone.
Ⅵ. Fire prevention, safety from theft and safe usage of electricity
Winter is dry in Beijing which leads to high-incidence period of fire. Please make sure to thoroughly inspect and clean up the places where there may be potential safety hazards in the dormitory and laboratory, cut off the power supply of the dormitory in time, lock the doors and windows, and keep the unused experimental instruments and dangerous chemicals properly. It is strictly forbidden to allow other people to stay in the dormitory; Beware of the dorm security; Do not smoke or use open flames in the building, and do not store flammable, explosive, toxic, hazardous and other dangerous goods. Do not connect the power lines without permission, do not use high-power illegal electrical appliances, and do not pull out the plug when charging mobile phones, tablet computers and other devices. Do not misappropriate or damage fire-fighting equipment, accumulate debris, or block safe passages. Students with electric vehicles should pay attention to regularly replacing aging batteries, not modifying electric vehicles in violation of regulations, and parking electric vehicles in the management area. It is strictly prohibited to park electric vehicles inside the building or charge the batteries of electric vehicles. It is also prohibited to light fireworks and firecrackers.
Ⅶ. Pay attention to safety while playing ice and snow sports
While enjoying the fun of ice and snow, students must also take precautions. When choosing a sports venue, be sure to go to a formal snow and ice rink with complete protective facilities and rescue equipment. Always pay attention to danger area warnings and stay away from loose ice and snow. For unattended icy waters, be sure to pay attention to the danger warnings and keep from them. While exercising, choose suitable sports according to physical conditions and technical level, exercise under the guidance of professionals, and take protective measures. To protect all parts of the body, choose windproof and warm clothes and lightweight, warm and non-slip shoes, prepare antifreeze and other commonly used medicines with you, and be aware of the necessary safety knowledge of first aid.
