Ok so 22 december I will be flying from Amsterdam to Melbourne, with 2 stops in China (Chengdu and Guangzhou). As this is my first time flying outside of Europe, with a number of stops in China, I am uncertain about a number of issues:
1. Will my bagage be labelled to Melbourne, or will I have to pick it up in China and re-check my bagage? If so, how does this work? Will I need to go through customs again after picking and checking in my bagage in China? And will I be able to do this within 2 hours, because my connecting flight leaves 2 hours after my flight is schedules to arrive.
2. How does the 24h TWOV work in China? Cause if I will be out of China within 24h, it says I don't need a visa. Does that mean that I don't even have to apply for one at the airport at the moment of arrival?
I'd love to hear your feedback, cause I am new to solo air travel is this is all quite intriguing.
