My flight itenary is LAX-PVG(Shanghai)-KMG(kUNMING)-CCU(India) by China eastern. As u can see- I have 2 stops/transits in china & I already found out from the China consulate that China has 24 hours visa free transit (including 2 stops in china). They could not confirm if my transit time is 26 hour will the immigration be lenient to still give me visa-free-transit (since it's just 2 hrs above the limit).
Has anyone transiting via China had a 25 or 26 hour transit time and did you need to apply for Chinese transit visa before arrival in shanghai? Plz help!!
