Beijing airport transfer time terminal 3 to terminal 2

I will arrive at Beijing capital airport by an interanational flight at 11:25 a.m. at terminal 3 and would like to take an domestic transfer flight at 14:05 p.m. from terminal 2.

Is this transfer time enough (160 min)?

Did anyone do this before? How much time took it going through quarantine inspection, visa control, picking up the luggage and tranfer to terminal 2?

Thanks for any advise!

If your flights are on time, it's enough. Allow an hour to get out initially and half an hour to transfer terminals.

You are fine if your flight is on time but do not drag your feet as you do not have that much spare time.

hi, it is more than enough.

if you are normal traveler with some experience, the transfer won't take longer than 90 mins.

i did it in 50mins (domestic - internation flight, from T2 to T3).

it is simple - no possibility to get confused.

one remark: when you go out from T3 for shuttle bus to T2, go to the left and after some 50meters you will find the bus with clear sign: "going to T2".

OK. For your trip it to late, But here some additional informations.

On my trip back from Korea to Germany I have to change at Beijing Airport from Teminal 2 to T3 in 2,5 h.

It was easy, but it takes time (60 to 80 min.), if your luggage is check through.

1. in frnt of T2 at gate 7 is the bus stop

2. take to T3 and wait (between 5 and 10 min.)

3. bus transfer takes around 25 min.

4. Check-in at T3 and go down stairs to the rail station

5. leave the rail at your gate (E or D)

6. go to your gate

It seems easy, but you will loose some weight . . . .
