    How do we lessen the chance of getting offloaded here in the philippines? We are going to HK (bought a travel package from a travel agency). Problem is I think we are a red flag to the IO because:We are freelancers, so we have no company id if they'll ask us. But we are financially capable to go through this trip.What we plan to bring:1. our etickets/roundtrip tickets (obviously)2. itinerary provided by the travel agency3. we are willing to print our bank statement of accounts to prove that we do have more than enough money4. Php10-15k of show money eachIs this enough for us to "pass"? Any suggestions?

    • Sally :9/1/2014 5:50:00 AM

      these documents are enough for your travel in HK and I believe you won't have any problem in applying for a visa.

    Me and my girlfriend plan to take a trip to Hongkong. is it possible that we enter via macau and exit via hongkong? And what requirements would we need thanks so much for the help:))

    • Belle :12/16/2015 2:46:00 AM

      If your country has signed the free-entry agreement with HK, you can go there. Of course you can enter via Macau and exit via HK. You are required to hold a valid passport, round-trip air tickets, and enough money.

    Hey This is Aizaz from PakistanI had a double entry visa of HongkongSo i had a direct flight from Lahore to Guangzhou. i planned to go to guangzhou then to Hk via mtr,same is the case while returning,so i applied for a transit visa type (G) I recieved a 5 Day single entry visa. the problem is how can i return via china with a single entry visa? Will i get a 24 hour permit at Hk mtr when leaving for guangzhou?I remember the visa officer talking about 24 hour stay when i go back. But i am not sure. Its confusing. please clear this problem with a legitimate source so that i dont have problem in my trip. Thanks!

    • Zack :12/16/2015 3:46:00 AM

      Aizaz, you will depart from HK to Guangzhou by MTR, and then fly to Lahore? If so, as long as you stay in Guangzhou for less than 24 hours, you don't need the G type. It's because you have access to the 24hrs direct transit policy. Information about such policy can be found on any website of overseas Chinese embassies.

    Hi,I'm an Indian Citizen working under a job permit in HK currently now and possess a HKID card. when my job permit expires I would like to stay for couple more days may be like 2 weeks.Will it be sufficient if I go to Macau and then return to HK as a tourist,if so how many days I need to stay in Macau...or is there other ways to stay in HK without going to other country..Please advise

    • Vera :12/16/2015 2:27:00 AM

      You can go to Macau and then re-enter as a tourist. You just need to stay in Macau for a few days. There is no specific time limit.

    Hi!I am a filipino citizen and a non-working spouse. My husband is an ofw. We are planning to go to Macau from Manila and stay for 3 days and take a ferry ride to Hongkong for 2 days before returning to Manila. Do we need to provide bank statement or bank certificate or bank passbook will suffice? How much total money should our bank account have?

    • Douglas :11/4/2014 10:57:00 PM

      You enjoy a 30-day free entry to visit Macau and 14-day free entry to visit HK. You are suggested to prepare your bank statement, round trip tickets and hotel booking in case the immigration officer requires to see. Since you stay with your husband, you two can use one bank statement. There is no limitation on the money, but the more the better.

    • Nina :12/16/2015 2:25:00 AM

      Emerson, don't worry. In normal cases, you won't be offloaded. You can enjoy a 30-day free entry to Macau actually. You need to take your passport, enough money (at least MOP 5000), and round-trip tickets.

    I am Filipino holding Philippine passport, planning to visit Hongkong for 7 days and go to Macau for 2 days, i am flying to Hongkong from Manila and plan to fly back from Macau to Manila.. would it required a visa just to fly back to Manila from Macau airport.. would i required a visa to do that. My passport is less than 30 days valid when i enter Macau would it be a problem?

    • Zoe :12/6/2015 3:01:00 AM

      No, the visa is not required, but you need to renew your passport. Otherwise, you may be forbided to enter.

    • Dora :12/6/2015 1:57:00 AM

      Dislad, you have to get a visa to go to Zhuhai. It's possible that you can get it upon arrival, but I can't say you will get it for sure. If you can't get the VOA, then you need to apply for one from Macau at the Office of the Commissioner of PRC Foreign Affairs Ministry.

    • Sandra :12/6/2015 1:49:00 AM

      Regine, I think it's ok. If you can enjoy free entry policy in the areas, the officers may not examine the tickets. Even they do this, I think the tickets are fine.

    I have a USA passport with a multiple entry, 90 day, 10 year visa for China. Can I enter Hong Kong every 90 days and return to Mainland China and continue my stay. If so, for what period of time must I visit HK before re-entering PRC and is there a limit to how many times I can do this ie exit re-enter?

    • Jack :12/6/2015 1:51:00 AM

      John, there are no special rules about this issue. That means you can exit from mainland to HK, stay there for a short time and then back to mainland. However, I personally don't think you can do this many times. If you do this too often, you may draw the attention of immigration officers and they may suspect your motivation.

    Hi, my partner is a Filipino national and passport holder. We want to do a trip to Hong Kong and Macau for a total of 16 days. 10 days in Hong Kong at the start of our trip, then 6 days in Macau and finally on the last day returning to Hong Kong and going to the airport to get our flight home.I will be ok as I am an EU citizen but I'm aware that Filipino nationals are allowed 14 days stay in Hong Kong and 30 in Macau, but I am confused how it works if the total trip time is 16 days although we would only be in Hong Kong for 11 days total. Any advice would be really appreciated.

What will be the requirements for us to get a china visa?? And is it possible if my proffessor is my only sponsor for this travel??coz i dont have bank statement ..thank you for your answer ..

    • Vivian :10/12/2015 4:00:00 AM

      Hi, you need to get an invitation letter from the fair organizer. Apart from that, both of you need to prepare the following documents: a valid passport, a photocopy of the passport's data page, an application form, a recent passport style photo, an invitation letter, and a financial standing document. If you can't provide the financial proof, you can provide your student certificate and your professor's sponsor letter for you.

      you have to obtain the chinese tourist visa for Zhuhai through the Chinese Embassy in India.
      if you go every day to Macau and back to Zhuhai, you need a multi-entry visa.

    • Alice :9/13/2015 4:49:00 AM

      Yes, you can go to China for a week after the 90 days run out and then reenter, but you can't always do this. If you do this too frequently, the officer may doubt your motivation and stops you from entering.
