Matters Need Attention

1. Completion of the online advance application for 144-hour visa-free transit does not mean that a temporary entry permit for visa-free transit has been obtained. The applicant still needs to submit the application to the border inspection department at the port, and can obtain the permit only after examination and approval.

2. The applicant should determine in advance the connecting ticket to a third country or region within 144 hours, the accommodation address in China and other matters, and fill in the relevant information in the electronic application system as required.

3. The electronic application system currently only accepts 144-hour visa-free transit applications. Applicants for 24-hour visa-free transit still need to fill in the Temporary Entry Card for Foreigners manually after arriving in the port and then submit the application.
