I have tried to contact some of the Hainan travel agencies that you have listed regarding the visa free access, however, they are yet to respond to mail.
Can you help me with a contact person from one of the Hainan based travel agencies?
Or perhaps it would make more sense to obtain our visa on arrival?
Thank you for your assistance.
I hope you will get a reply soon because I would really suggest you to travel with absolute peace of mind relying on 30 day visa free access. Much safer than Hainan VOA, although this VOA, when departing from Hong Kong should be quite fine. You are free to come here any time, so we will see the reactions of the agencies you have contacted so far.
You are not in obligation to book any trip through them. Essentially, you can book everything by yourself and also travel to Hainan as individual, but you will have to book one or a couple of their services. It is up to your bargaining skill because the agency always want to sell more and you want to buy just what really suits your needs. For example, you can agree on airport transfers or similar. By the way, you should try to contact CTS (China Travel Service) Hong Kong. They will definitely reply to you and you will quite quickly come to an agreement about the details of services you are willing to take. Give them a try.
When you agree on all the detail and it is usually quite fast, you will agree about the payment of their services and you will be supplied with an invitation letter. This is not an invitation letter in reality, but more a confirmation from the relevant Chinese authorities who allows you to enter Hainan island visa free. You will print out this document and bring it with you to the airport from where you will depart to Hainan. You will be allowed to board the plane without any problem.
