About:Forbidden City

Can we still buy tickets onsite for Forbidden City? Will the queue be very long?

Planning to go there on the last week of October

Sorry to tell you all tickets need to be booked online.
And by the way, you need a Chinese SIM card to finish the registration to book it.

I saw this post on another site saying that:
For visitors who are unable to buy their tickets online, for example the elderly, foreign tourists or those without e-payment, staff at the museum can book tickets online on their behalf.

So is it safe to say, that foreign tourists with no Chinese SIM cards and no Chinese e-payment scheme can still purchase onsite on the date of their visit?

Well, as I know, the staff can’t book tickets for visitors. And if you don’t have a SIM card, you can also scan a QR code to buy the ticket on site.

Were you able to buy tickets? If so, how?

Yes, I’ve got the ticket, which is bought by my Chinese friend. I just gave her my passport number.
