I will be transit in the airport from Singapore to Paris (France)
Do I need a transit visa ?
Though a majority of international airports in China opt in the 24-hour TWOV, passengers transiting through the following airports all need a visa no matter how long the layover is.
• Fuzhou Changle Airport
I am French too, I will transit 3h in FZ on my way from Paris to Singapore.
Do you need the Visa for FZ even if you don't go out of the airport ?
It will be verified once you arrive Fuzhou transit area.
Thats what I was told yesterday when I was at Xiamen airlines office in Singapore
It's so hard to find the right information !
What about you ?
Yes please keep me posted, I am really stressed of being stucked in Paris.
I've tried to call the Chinese Visa application center in Paris and Xiamen airlines. Nobody can answer me. It's a complete mess.
Also, this flight to Paris (from Xiamen Air) is new, the first one was yesterday 11th Dec.
So you were told that you can connect visa free if it's under 24h then ?
Arrived at fuzhou customs and was given a blue form to fill in by one immigration officer who was waiting for me somehow. Chop passport.
You will have to exit custom and go 2nd floor to check in again to collect your boarding pass. Your luggage will follow through to Singapore, no need to retrieve them in Fuzhou.
Overall nothing special happened. Arrived in Paris without any problems.
Filled up the blue form in the plane given by the hostess.
Went through customs easily and onwards to Singapore.
Confirmed 24h transit visa and allowed to go to town if you have time to go out
There are buses to the city just outside the arrival hall.
- How long does it take for Customs to check, I have a transit of 1 hour 30 minutes, is it too short?
-Do you confirm that there is no requirement to have a transit visa for less than 24 hours at FZ airport?
- Did your luggage follow the next flight?
Yes, you can enjoy the 224 hours visa free policy.
If your two airlines have luggage check through service, your luggage will be delivered to the destinations.
You are also entitled to the transit lounge on 2nd floor but nothing much in there except some snacks and lounge chairs.
I am travelling on Xiamen Airlines to Paris from Hong Kong, just want to make sure that i dont have to apply for VISA before hand and I can just do it at the HongKong Airport or at the Fuzhou Airport,
As i will be with my family ( my wife & my 4 year old) i just want to make sure that we wouldn't have any issues.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Did you just inquire about your visa requirement from Xiamen Airlines？
