Shanghai Set New 72-hour Visa-free following Beijing

Posted on  Dec. 12, 2012 15:40pm

Shanghai will allow transit passengers from 45 countries to stay in the city for 72 hours without a China Visa, following a similar policy announced by Beijing.

Shanghai’s visa-free policy was first introduced in 2000. The 24-hour visa-free stay is available to all transferring international passengers passing through the city while the 48-hour policy applies to visitors from 32 countries including the United Kingdom, the United States, Japan, Singapore, Germany, France, Hungary and Switzerland.

Starting on Jan. 1, 2013, tourists from 45 countries who have third-country visas and plane tickets can apply for a transit without a visa application in Shanghai. The city is the second on the mainland after Beijing to launch the new visa plan to boost tourism.

In 72 hours, visitors will have enough time to enjoy the classical garden of Yuyuan, the highest Oriental Pearl TV Tower, the grand European-style building of the Bund, the majestic Jade Buddha Temple, the bohemian neighbor of the French Concession and the world renowned Shanghai Museum.
