Hangzhou Applying for 72-hour Visa-free Policy 2018-10-11
72-hour Visa-free Policy refers to that when an international traveler travel from country A to country B by the way of Country C, he is entitled to make transit in country C and stay in country C for at most three days without holding the visa of country C (On condition that country C is a 72-hour Visa-free country). Right now, in China, there are only a few cities enjoying the policy, like Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Chongqing, Shenyang etc. In cities which haven’t adopted the policy, international travelers can only stay less than 24 hours in specified areas.

With Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal being inscribed into the UNESCO World Heritage List, Hangzhou becomes one of the few cities with two world heritage sites. It no doubt increases the charm of Hangzhou to international friends. In order to facilitate international travelers’ short stay for sightseeing in Hangzhou, Hangzhou government is now applying for the 72-hour Visa-free Policy. At present, relative documents have already been submitted and the application work is estimated to last for less than two years. Once approved, international travelers making transit in Hangzhou can enjoy a 72-hour Visa-free stay in Hangzhou as long as they have a visa and an air ticket to a third country.
