For­eign­ers can re­port en­try in­for­ma­tion on­line

Global Times – Metro Shanghai - - PULSE -

For­eign vis­i­tors qual­i­fied for Shang­hai’s 144-hour visa-free tran­sit pol­icy can now re­port their en­try in­for­ma­tion in ad­vance by us­ing an on­line sys­tem, Shang­hai Observer re­ported Wed­nes­day.

With the new sys­tem, the check-in process will be short­ened by nearly 20 min­utes. When ar­riv­ing at any Shang­hai port of en­try, for­eign­ers can print the en­try card on an au­to­matic ma­chine by them­selves to com­plete their check-in process.

The sys­tem will give prompt feed­back if the ap­pli­cant fails any re­quire­ment for the 144-hour pol­icy. The new mea­sure will also help fa­cil­i­tate vis­i­tors to the first China In­ter­na­tional Im­port Expo.

The city started its 144-hour visa-free tran­sit in 2016. Cit­i­zens from 53 coun­tries and re­gions with the cor­rect cer­ti­fi­ca­tion are al­lowed to travel with­out a tourist visa in the Yangtze River Delta re­gion.
