Lo Wu Border Crossing - hours for visas?

Would appreciate information on when the border crossing closes on a Saturday.

I am arriving into HKIA around 430pm and will be spending the first couple of days in Shenzhen. I need to get a visa first thou.

Thanks in advance to anyone with info on this.

Why not taking the bus or minivan or taxi to the Huangang border crossing?

If you need to go to Luohu, sonsider taking bus A43 to Sheung Shui and one stop MTR to Lo Wu.

Of course it depends where in Shenzhen you finally need to go.

Note above is Government Visa office.

Does anyone have contact details for 2 private visa & travel companies, located adjacent to the government office, in the upstairs part of the Lo Wu birder crossing?

Thanks in advance.
