The trains are still not available to Hong Kong now, is there another way to get there?

Answered by Elizabeth from UK | Jun. 10, 2020 19:34

I suppose you need to get to Futian Port firstly, and then take the escalator directly upstairs, where you can find the sign to Hong Kong and then arrive at the entrance and exit Hall of Futian port. Hong Kong is on another side after you finishing your immigration.

Do you think 1 hour is enough for us to change trains in Shenzhen North?
Especially we are catching the train to HK?
Answers (1)
Answered by Primo from COLOMBIA | Mar. 05, 2019 16:56

Yes, 1 hour is surely enough as long as you have the paper tickets in hand. You can collect the paper tickets for the second trip to HK in advance at other station first. In this way, 1 hours is surely enough. The boarding process for HK direction is the same as other routes within China mainland.

Where do I apply for a 144 hr transit visa if travelling by train from HK to Shanghai ?
I am UK citizen .

Answered by Nick | Jan. 01, 2019 18:28

If you mean the high speed ride from HK to Shanghai, you cannot use 144 hours visa free policy. This immigration port do not support visa free stay.
Answered by Keith from AUSTRALIA | May. 14, 2019 03:30

With transit visas you are only allowed to go a certain distance from the entry point. Different ports have different distances, but for example Guangzhou will allow you to go through Shenzhen to HK, and vice versa, but traveling overland to Shanghai goes out of the local visa district.
