Free Transit Visa in China will save from the long process of full visa

Published on : Thursday, August 3, 2017

1223090457China is issuing a free transit visa for the tourists visiting Beijing and Shanghai, which will save £200 and the most complicated process of applying for a full Chinese visa.



Both Beijing and Shanghai are now allowing a foreign visitor to stay almost a week without formality, so long as they fulfill a few conditions for what is in effect a free transit visa.



The visitors must arrive from outside China and stay no more than six days from midnight on their day of arrival; and leave to a different destination outside the People’s Republic of China.



To attract more outside tourists, China at last loosens its rules. It is excellent news for the thousands of cruise passengers, who can join or leave a cruise at Shanghai, without needing a visa.



Yet one of the biggest cruise lines in the world told British passengers, they did not qualify, and must instead spend around £200 to obtain a tourist visa.Sandra Collinson has a cruise booked next March from Singapore to Shanghai aboard Majestic Princess. She plans to spend one night in a hotel in Shanghai and fly home the day after disembarking. She said that, Majestic Princess will deny boarding to any passengers who do not have visa.



Initially Princess Cruises supposed that the Chinese authorities had predetermined all passengers must have visas. The visa situation in China is complex and dependent on a number of factors.



The visitors who require more information should speak to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. Many British cruise passengers book through travel agents who are members of ABTA.



Shanghai General Station of Immigration Inspection for the past 16 months has provided a straightforward 144 hours Visa Exemption Transit Policy, where all the rules to attain the visa are explained.
