How long do businesses stay closed in China during Chinese New Year?

I urgently need to reach some business associates in Shanghai – but it seems that their offices are closed for Chinese New Year! How long should I expect for them to stay closed – will they be back in the office on Monday 22 Feb, or how long do they have holidays? Thanks!!

    they are usually closed for like almost a week. cause they have all these customs to follow. but a lot ar eopen for buisness now since a lot of their companies deal with companies outside of china.

    Many businesses are already open and everything will be open by Monday Feb 22.

    The holiday lasts from Feb. 13 – 19. Just about everything has been closed since at least Feb. 13. The holiday is officially over today, Feb. 20, but many organizations take a longer holiday both before and after the actual holiday dates.

    Yesterday, I sent a courier package via an international company and expected it to go out immediately. It did not. They picked it up but never began shipping. I am told they will begin today.

    Many other companies and even restaurants will not open until Monday. This is China (TIC).

    Everything will be back to normal on 22 FEB, some started as early as 20 FEB. But some employees are taking their annual leave together with the long holiday.
