72-Hour Chinese Transit Visas...coming soon

Tiananmen Square

From Januray 2013 it will be possible to get a 3-day Chinese transit visa on arrival at Beijing's Capital International Airport, enabling people travelling to Mongolia to easily stop over in the Chinese capital, making the most of a visit to Central Asia.

In the past it has been costly, time-consuming and confusing to get a Chinese visa before travelling to Asia if you wanted to get out of the airport and see something of Beijing whilst travelling en route to another destination. When it becomes possible to get a transit visa on arrival in Beijing, it will be possible to visit the Forbidden City, The Great Wall, Summer Palace and other great sights within the area of Beijing.
