Guangzhou, China May Add 72 Hour Transit Without Visa 11 April 13

Posted by Summer Jenkins in traveler advise, Visa News.

Officials from China Southern Airlines have recently announced that negotiations are underway to allow foreign travelers a 72 hour transit without visa stopover in Guangzhou.  Although the policy has not yet been officially confirmed, it is expected that it will go into effect late this year.

Currently, tourists and business travelers from 45 nations, including the United States, are allowed a visa-free stay of up to 72 hours in Beijing and Shanghai if they hold ongoing air tickets to a third country.  This policy went into effect on January 1 of this year; please see our earlier article for complete details.  Guangzhou is expected to follow the same rules as Beijing and Shanghai.

G3 will continue to monitor the progress of the transit without visa policy and will provide updates as they become available.
