Shenzhen Airport

Latest News: From Monday February 6th 2023 all Hong Kong - China borders will open. No more quota, no more PCR test (if you have not been outside Hong Kong, Macau the last 7 days). Seems we are finally getting back to normal!

According to this website below you can get a visa on arrival (VOA) at the Shenzhen airport:

There are some requirements according the airline visa database:

`Passengers with a normal passport arriving at Chongqing (CKG), Guangzhou (CAN), Guilin (KWL), Haikou (HAK), Kunming (KMG), Qingdao (TAO), Sanya (SYX), Shenzhen (SZX), Weihai (WEH), Xi An (XIY) and Yantai (YNT) can obtain a visa on arrival if they have confirmation that a visa has been approved before departure and:

  • that a visa will be issued on arrival; and
  • passport contains at least 1 blank visa page for the sticker-type visa; and
  • a sponsor (approved by Chinese authorities) meets passenger on arrival.`

That means, you need pre-approval from the airline. It is not clear if that is the same visa as the 5-Day-Shenzhen-Visa.

If somebody knows more, please let me know.
