Luōhú 罗湖

The easiest border to cross into Shenzhen is probably Lowu (Luōhú/罗湖/羅湖). It can easily reached by MTR (subway), in fact, Lowu can only be reached by MTR from Hong Kong. The border is open from 06:30 in the morning until midnight 00:00. The visa office is open 07:00 to 23:30 .

Procedure:

  1. Take the MTR from anywhere in Hong Kong to Lowu
  2. In Lowu, leave the MTR and go to Hong Kong immigration to exit Hong Kong
  3. After Hong Kong immigration follow the flow of the people over the bridge (about 100m)
  4. When you enter the China immigration building, go straight past the escalator down. You can see already the passport counter
  5. Do not go to the passport counter, do a sharp 180º left turn and go the escalator one floor up
  6. Get the 5 day Shenzhen visa form and fill it
  7. 5 Day Visa Form

  8. Hand it to the counter, and wait
  9. Waiting time is usually just a few Minutes. Pay, get your passport, go one floor down to the China immigration counter
