Can I use the 144 hours visa from Hong Kong to Shenzhen ? if yes, where can I buy the Visa ?

I'm afraid Malaysian passport holders are not eligible for the 144-hour visa-free transit policy. As for the 5-day Shenzhen VOA, it is also easy for them to get rejected. So it is recommended to obtain a Chinese visa in advance.

In this situation, it is better if you depart from Guangzhou one day in advance and stay near the airport for one night. You can take the last direct train from Guangzhou East to Hung Hum then had to the airport. Or you can take a train to Shenzhen station first and then cross Luohu board before 00:00 at midnight then had to the airport. By the way, if your flight is for 7:10am, maybe it is better if you can be there at 4:30am.

The train runs everyday. There are 9 rides a day to East Station. You need to search by Hong Kong [Hung Hom] Station istead of West Kowloon. West Kowloon Station only has trains to South Station.
