Chongqing Launches 72-hour Visa-free Stays

Chongqing will allow transit passengers 72-hour visa-free stays starting in November, in a move aimed at boosting the local economy and tourism. These regulations only apply to those who have proof that they intend to depart within the allotted time period, as evidenced by air tickets to a third country with confirmed dates and seats.

Chongqing will be the fifth city in China after Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Chengdu to introduce this ruling, and is one of only two cities in Midwest China to offer the visa-free limited stay.

In order to maximize the opportunity to develop local tourism, Chongqing’s tourism administration will work with partner tour companies on suggested routes for transit passengers, including a Three Gorges tour and food tours.
