I want to fly from Myanmar to LHR via Beijing. UK passport holder. Flight options are limited and I want to avoid airport change in Bangkok. Most cheaper flights require change at a Chinese city (not Shanghai or HK) - but same airline so through luggage and no airport exit necessary - .Can I still get a 72 hour visa free visit in Beijing?
Also I note visa start time is from issue not plane landing - is end time when I'm back behind security or when my plane is due to take off? Hope someone can help...
