China offers 53 countries to benefit the policy of ''144-Hour Visa-Free Transit in China'' (6 days, from the day of landing to departure without holding a visa). Please read more details at: https://www.travelchinaguide.com/tour/visa/free-transit-144-hours.htm

If you stay no longer than 6 days in China, you do not have to apply for visa. However, your return flight cannot be the direct flight. It must include at least one transit point which is different country or region out of Mainland China. *Please read carefully about ''What is an eligible transit route?'' at https://www.travelchinaguide.com/tour/visa/free-transit-144-hours.htm before you book the flight.
