Shanghai Looking to Allow Cruise Visits without Visas

Earlier this year, Shanghai put into action a new law allowing airline passengers from 45 countries to stay in the city for up to 72 hours without a visa. The new policy applied to visitors entering Shanghai through either of the city’s two airports: Hongqiao (SHA) and Pudong (PVG). Due to the success of this new policy, Shanghai is now looking to expand the 3-day visa-free stay to visitors coming into Shanghai from cruise terminals. This is excellent news for cruise passengers, who – if the policy is approved – will be able to explore Shanghai without having to acquire a separate visa.
