Visa on arrival at ferry terminal

We hold indian passport and intend visitng shenzen for couple of days when we visit hong kong.

Can we take ferry om hkia and get visa at the shenzen ferry terminal? That will save us time in going into hk and them take a train to Lo Wu.

I have read conflicting views on different forums. Hence will look forward to guidance and views from anyone who has also used thisnfacility recently.

As far as I know, there is no Shenzhen SEZ visa for Indian nationals nor available at the ferry terminal. All my Indian friends applied for a regular visa in advance.

Apply for a visa for China in India before you go.

At the ferry? Not in the last 10 years from my experience. Do they say "Shekou Port"? This refers to the Shekou border at the bridge. Have entered from HKIA to SZ by ferry? This would be an ideal scenario for many of my visitors. So far they go via Huanggang.

Or for Indians? Last about 6 years all my Indian friends got their China visa in India or HK (HK residents). As you mentioned you did it in 2007, I cannot comment on this, but obviously it was available.

If you want be sure, call the immigration office at the border to get the latest information. That is what we usually do.

You source is hardly official. It is incomplete as there is no mention of the fees. There is also no mention of which nationalities qualify or not.

And it says Shekou Port which is not the ferry port.

According to the ferry schedule, visa on arrival is available at Shenzhen Fuyong (airport) ferry port, but not so far as I am aware, for Indian passport holders. Shenzhen visa on arrival at Shekou ferry port is only available to foreigners holding HK or Macau ID card;

You can check the current situation by phoning the visa office numbers quoted.

Hi Pankaj,

Did you travel to Shenzhen already? If yes, how did you get your Visas done? I am traveling to Hong Kong - Shenzhen - Macau in October and I have been told that I need to apply for Chinese Visa to travel to Shenzhen from India itself. Did you do it any other way?

Thanks,

Amit
