1/ Discovered that many people don't know the protocol for people who travel to China on behalf of a big tech company.
2/ You do not take your laptop. Company gives you a burner laptop with VPN. (Great Firewall typically lets corporate VPNs through.) No files, please.
3/ They ask you not to open and/or power up the laptop once you’ve got onto the plane leaving China. Bring it straight to IT unopened for sanitization.
4/ You do not do business on your phone. If you want to take your phone you have to uninstall the stuff that lets you access work email/chat/files.
5/ Lots of people arrange burner phones. If you’re roaming on a Western SIM, you dodge the GFW.
6/6 I suspect that this experience could become the new normal, I mean not just for traveling to dictatorships.
