Transit without Visa in China

Transit without Visa in China


In an attempt to ease visa restrictions for passengers travelling through and to China, the Beijing Municipal Government from December 28, 2017, is offering Transit Without Visa (TWOV) through a range of airports and for three-time ranges. The points of arrival include the Beijing Capital International Airport, Tianjin Binhai International Airport and Shijiazhuang International Airport. It will permit UK travellers to enjoy visa-free transit treatment starting from 24, 72 & 144 hours when they have a valid connecting flight ticket for a third country.

The 24-hour visa is the easiest to get and allows you to travel in any city in China for the said duration. The 72 and 144 hours TWOV options are more stringent and are available in selected cities and airports only.
