China 'Transit without Visa' Shanghai

By JA | May 16, 2019, 03:52 AM
I'm staying the night in Nantong, Jiangsu (just outside of Shanghai). Does anyone know if I land at Shanghai Pudong whether Nantong is included in the region that i'm able to travel visa-free in? Also, to clarify: as long as I arrive from Australia, but depart from China to a 'third country' like Hong Kong, that fulfils the requirements for visa-free 'transit' in China? Thanks for the assistance/advice!

The Shanghai 144 hour TWOV covers the Jiangsu province, where Nantong is located.

Leaving for Hong Kong afterwards fulfills the transit conditions, so overall, you should be fine.

Shanghai region only also has an online pre-application for the 144-hour visa.

Not widely publicised and most of the few links on the web now go to a dead url on a police website.


Current link is:
