Just wondering if I would qualify for the 144 Visa exemption as I am flying into Beijing with Qantas via Melbourne/Sydney will be there for approximately 4 days and then flying to Manchester UK via Hainan Airlines

Thank you

Hi JT, we published a guide on this only last week which sets out the rules for this.

Hi
Thank you have read it and just confirming that Beijing does the 144 Hours and that Beijing been my first stop out of Australia and Manchester been the second stop this is OK for no Visa.

Thank you

Yes, you will be able to use the Transit WOV program.

Hi

I am looking at changing my flight now to be from Melbourne to Hong Kong with Cathy and then Hong Kong to Beijing with Cathy Dragon 4 night in Beijing and then Beijing to Manchester, will still meet the requirements for the Transit WOV?

Thank you

Hi JT:


Yes, you meet requirements.


Destination A → Destination B: Mainland Chinese City → Destination C


Destination A cannot be Destination C


Just remember - on either side of your Mainland Chinese city must be two cities from different countries. To save confusion - just note that Macau, Hong Kong and Taiwan are also applicable destinations to either side of the Mainland Chinese city.


A clearer article of this transit program is available below:
