L Visa for Mainland China Date:2017-02-19 Editor:

For legal, immigration and visa purposes Hong Kong and China are two separate units. While Hong Kong offers visa free access to citizens from the US, Europe, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and more countries, mainland China doesn’t and almost everyone will need a visa to enter mainland China.

There are several types of visa available. If you are travelling to Shenzhen or that region, citizens of some countries are able to get a Shenzhen visa on the spot at the Hong Kong/China border. Similarly, there is also a Guangdong group visa that allows access to a slightly wider region for groups of three or more to stay in Guangdong province up to 6 days. There are numerous restrictions and rules applied to both these visas.

if you are plan to travel in to China, back out to Hong Kong and back into China again you’ll need a multiple entry visa. Macau is separate to Hong Kong and China visa rules and allows most nationals visa free access. Travel between Hong Kong and Macau can only take ferry.
