Chengdu Latest City to Offer 72-Hour Visa-Free Stays

Following Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou, Chengdu will become the fourth city in China to adopt the 72-hour visa-free stay policy. When the policy goes into effect in Chengdu starting September 1, 2013, Chengdu will be China’s first inland city to offer a 72-hour visa-free stay to transit passengers.

The policy allows tourists from the United States and 44 other countries who have visas and departing plane tickets for another country to apply for “transit without visa” at the Beijing Capital International Airport, Pudong International Airport and Hongqiao International Airport in Shanghai, and Baiyun International Airport in Guangzhou.

The new visa-free policy is expected to bring additional tourism to Chengdu, as well as expedite the construction of additional transportation infrastructure in Western China.
