We are doing a stop over in Shanghai whilst travelling from London to Auckland. It's only for 24 hours due to flight timings.
My question is whether we now need to spend £130 on 'transit' visas for us.
The Chinese UK Embassy website says that from January 2013, if you fly to Shanghai, you don't need a visa for a visit of less than 72 hours as long as certain criteria are met.
My question is has anyone been via Shanghai lately and is there anything we need to do in advance? It just seems to simple?
