    if your a tourist in hongkong, and want to go to philippines for a couple of days,.. would you still need a visa?

    • Replied by: Bobby   Sep. 21, 2011 19:28

      Citizens of Saudi arabia are visa free to enter philippines for less than 21 days provided that they hold passports that are valid for at least six months beyond the intended period of stay and valid airline tickets for their return journey to port of origin or next port of destination.

    Hello! Thank you for the wonderful advice and assistance. If I want to purchase a train ticket from Mainland China to Hong Kong, do I need to show my passport. And if so, will the check my visa? What will happen if my visa is expired?

    • Replied by: tina   Sep. 13, 2011 00:24

      yes, you need to show your passport and they will check your visa.
      you may not get the ticket if your visa is expired.
      but you are a U.S citizen, right?
      if so, you can go and stay in Hong Kong without a visa for at most 90 days.

    Hi. Is there any way that my 8-year old can travel with me to Singapore without a passport? I already have tickets for the trip and I didn't know it would take 30 days here in Cagayan de Oro to get a passport. Please help!

    Hi I am from Philippines but in hong kong now for vacation i have the 14 day stay requirement and its already the second week. however my sister already bought me a ticket for a Macao tour this in a few days before my end of stay. can i extend my stay from immigration in macao and come back to hong kong?

    • Replied by: Julia   Sep. 06, 2011 19:55

      no, you can not extend your stay in Macau, but you can extend your stay in Hong Kong. However, your stay of 14 days in Hong Kong is only single entry. if you exit Hong Kong and go to Macau, your stay in Hong Kong ends. a second stay in Hong Kong starts if you come back, but it is usually hard to get the second stay since the two stays are so close to each other that the immigration department may think you try to escape from applying a Hong Kong visa (a visa is required if you want to stay more than 14 days). my suggestion is you'd better book the air ticket from Hong Kong to the philippines, and get back from Macau the day your flight departs. take the ferry from Macau to Hong Kong Airport and do not go through the customs, and take the flight directly back to your country.
      or you can book the flight from Macau directly back to the Philippines.

      hi anne,
      i suggest you apply a Hong Kong visa in the Chinese embassy.

  • Replysardor   Uzbekistan    Sep. 01, 2011 13:43

    HI, I would like to know if its possible to go from HongKong to Macau (for weekend) and back from Macau to HongKong with only 1 entry visa to HongKong.
    Thank you in advance

    • Replied by: Peter   Sep. 04, 2011 00:12

      no, it is not possible.
      you can go back to Hong Kong only if you hold double-entry Hong Kong visa.
      and also, you have to obtain a Macau visa for your trip to Macau.

    Hi, I am planning to go to Hong Kong in December for 3 days then planning to visit Shenzhen, Zhuhai, Xiamen and other Special Economic Zones in China. I am Us Citizen, do I need visa? or if there is special case such as tour company organized tour to visit those region for a day trip, do I still need visa?

    • Replied by: Della   Aug. 29, 2011 20:02

      if you go with a group tour organized by the local travel agency in Hong Kong Shenzhen, Zhuhai,and stay there for 3 days, you don't need to apply the visa for mainland China.
      however, you need the China visa if you want to visit Xiamen.

      hi Samira,
      you can apply the visa in the Chinese Embassy or consulate general in U.K. the required documents are:

      3. Photocopy of your husband's travel document (passport)containing personal particulars, date of issue, date of expiry and/or details of any re-entry visa held (if applicable).

      4. Photocopy of your marriage certificates.

      5. The applicant's application form, Application for Entry for Residence as Dependants in Hong Kong with Part B duly completed by you.

      6. Photocopy of your Hong Kong identity card

      7. Photocopy of your passport.

      hi Mel,
      you don't need to apply the Macau visa. you can stay in Macau for 30 days without a visa.

    I am a Myanmar passport holder, I would like to travel to Hongkong and Macau 7days and do I need visa to enter both places? and could i apply the visa when I arrived to the airport of hongkong and macau?

    Thank you!

    • Replied by: Sina   Aug. 16, 2011 20:37

      yes, you need to apply the visas for both places.
      the Hong Kong visa must be obtained in your country before departure, while the Macau visa can be obtained at the port. but i suggest you get both before you trip so that your trip will be smooth.

  • Replystan   Malaysia    Aug. 11, 2011 06:47

    My China Visa is valid until dec 2011 and my passport expired at dec as well.

    but due to malaysia not allow travel with passport which will expired soon less than 6 months so I renew my passport already.

    I will travel to China this sep, do I still need to apply visa again ? can I use back the visa which attached with my old passport ?

    • Replied by: Jack   Aug. 14, 2011 00:50

      hi stan,
      you can use the visa, only to make sure that there is at least one-time entry left on your visa. and of course you can use the old passport. actually you must take it with you.

      hi Lynn,
      filipino passport holders are exempt from Hong Kong visa for 14 days, so you don't need a visa if you only go for 3 days. visa is only required when you plan to stay more than 14 days.

      Filipino passport holders have a visa-free period up to 14 days in Hong Kong. if you stay there less than 14 days, you don't need the visa.
      the three kids should have their own passport.
