China visa
Hi, I'm planning to fly to Macao, and spend a few days there before entering China via Zhuhai, and then spending 15 days in China before flying out of China from Guangzhou. Is this plan possible? I am wondering if I can stay 3 days in Macao and 15 days in China or does 15 day visa free mean I can only spend a total of 15 days in both Macao and China?

Answered by Dennis | Sep. 18, 2023 01:48

You can of course stay at most 15 days in mainland China and more days in Macau.

If you apply in your home country, the process time is generally 4 working days after all documents are submitted.

I also suppose you are asking for Zhuhai visa on arrival. According to recent feedbacks, only a few Philippines passport holders have got it and the rejection rate is quite high.

Hi Molly thanks for info.. But I'm in Macau right now... Is it possible for me to get a 1 day visa?
Answered by Molly | Sep. 03, 2023 23:12

You may have a try but the result is not guaranteed.

Zhuhai Day Trip

My husband and I planning to go Zhuhai for a day trip from Macau. Is it correct that we just go over to the Gongbei border maybe via taxi and pass the immigration and we will reach Zhuhai? May I also ask the peak hour at the immigration? Thank you.

Answered by Vivian | Aug. 01, 2023 00:13

Yes, you are right. Singapore passport holders are nowadays 15-day visa-free to enter China. The peak hours are around 09:00-10:00.

I'm sorry, recent feedback is not so positive for Indonesian passport holders and it is better for you to apply for a China visa in advance.
