The application process for the volunteers, who are expected to be hand-picked from a large pool of highly qualified domestic college and high school students, local supporters, overseas Chinese fans, and international enthusiasts, will open on December 5, 2019, and close on June 30, 2021.

The organizing committee also aims to secure 12,000 volunteers for the Paralympics. They will be required to carry out various roles, including supporting media personnel and providing guidance at the athletes' village and venues.
