Can I get VOA by taking train to Shenzhen Station?
I read some replies that I cannot get VOA if taking a high speed train from HK to Shenzhen North but train to Shenzhen Station is fine? Is this true?
Answers (1)
Answered by Tatjana from PHILIPPINES | Aug. 04, 2019 17:12

The high speed train from HK did cannot work for VOA or other visa free visiting. This Shenzhen Railway Station cannot work either. I suppose it means Luohu Port instead which is very close to the railway station. Travelers who take MTR from HK can cross border there.

Train ticket collection
Can I pick up my tickets purchased online (HK to Guangzhou & Guangzhou to Guilin) from Lo Wu train station? Or even the new Kowloon West train station?
Answers (2)
Answered by Hilliard | Oct. 15, 2018 03:08

For the HK to GZ one, you need to do it at West Kowloon Station. For the Guangzhou to Guilin one, you need to collect it in mainland. You can also do it at West Kowloon Station for the second one, but there will be extra service fee charged.
Answered by A from CHINA | Oct. 18, 2018 09:26

Thanks Hilliard. I ended up picking everything up at West Kowloon Station. The inter-China tickets had a 10% fee as I wasn't picking them up in China.

Answered by Tommy Y | Jan. 08, 2018 02:10

Beijing Street area should be closer to Guangzhou Railway Station, you may use subway line 2 for transfer. There are many high speed C rides a day from SZ to GZ.

You can try to buy the ticket on spot if you are not tight in schedule since there are many rides a day.
