Guangzhou Launches 72-Hour Visa-Free Stays

Guangzhou, the capital city of Guangdong Province and the third largest city in China, is now officially allowing international transit passengers to stay in the city for 72 hours without a visa. Guangzhou is the third Chinese city, following Beijing and Shanghai, to launch this visa-free policy.

Travelers from United States and other 44 countries, who intend to visit a third country and who hold air tickets, will be able to stay in the Guangdong provincial capital for three days without a visa and will be allowed to visit anywhere in the province during their trips.

The new visa-free policy will further solidify Guangzhou’s status as a key metropolis in China and is believed to facilitate tourist stays for short holidays or business travelers attending the Canton Fair, the largest trade fair in China.
