I want to say
  • ReplyDennis   Indonesia    Jul. 11, 2011 19:49

    My Student visa in Hong Kong will be expired on this July 15. I am planning to go out from Hong Kong on July 15 in the morning to Shen Zhen or Macao. One thing that I want to ask is whether I can come back to HK on July 15 night and get 30 days more(Tourist visa) or I should go back on July 16?

      hi Dennis,
      i don't think it is possible, plus you need a visa if you go to Shenzhen.
      so you can go to Macau on 15th and go back on 16th or maybe 2 or 3 days later.
      whether you can go back to Hong Kong and get the 30 days depends on the officer at the customs sometimes.

    my friend and i will travel hongkong on july 21 and our ticket back to philippines is aug 10 so meaning our ticket duration is more than 14 days exceeding to the allowable days of stay in hongkong, nevertheless by july 26 we will travel from hongkong to indonesia and be back to hongkong on aug 8,2 days prior to our departure to hongkong. my question is what particular documents are we going to prepare to the chinese immigration?

      hi Arlyn,
      just your valid passport and may be the air tickets.
      for your case, you may be granted another 14 days the second time you enter China.

    I'm USA citizen and holding an US passport as well, do I need to apply for visa to travel to Hong Kong? for visiting.
    According to website, US citizens do not need a visa during the visa-free period. I just like to be sure.
    Thank you,

    • Replied by: Peter   Jul. 09, 2011 23:31

      yes, you are right.
      US passport holders enjoy a visa free period up to 90 days.
      so you don't need a Hong Kong Visa if you stay in Hong Kong less than 90 days.

      Hi Lucy,
      India passport holders are exempt from Hong Kong visa for 14 days, and are exempt from Macau visa for 30 days. so you only need to apply for a tourist visa for mainland China if you want to go to Shenzhen.
      you need to apply it through the Chinese Embassy or Consulate office in India.
      1. Covering letter from your company or employer addressed to the visa office
      2.your valid passport;
      3. fully complete appliation form, which you can download from the official website of Chinese Embassy in India;
      4. a recently taken passport sized photo, usually white background.
      5. photocopy of your round-trip airtickets.
      6. you may be requested to provide the proof of travel expense.

      hi Ammar,
      since the Chinese Embassy said so, you don't need to worry about the visa.
      you can visit mainland China with the Chinese visa. and visit HK without a HK visa.
