The Chinese Consulate in Sydney doesn’t allow Priority Processing anymore (1-2 business days) for visas due to a change in Government Regulations. The minimum time for processing is 6 business days and my flight leaves this Saturday to SH.
I spoke directly with the Chinese Embassy and they said they still allow you to enter SH for up to 48 hours without a visa.
I don’t want to change my flight date so my only option is to get a visa in HK however I don’t want to fly direct from SH to HK as it is quite pricey.
So, is it possible for me to go to SH first without a visa, then fly domestically to Shenzhen without a visa, then travel to HK, all in under 48 hours without a China visa and then finally get a visa in HK?
Or is there any other possible way?
