3. About how to go through the “visa free access” at Beijing airport
Please see details at: https://www.beijinglayovertour.com/beijing-layover-tour-tips/.
Even you fit all the policies above, the immigration officers still have right to object you for some reasons (sometimes they will tell you the reason sometimes they don’t).
If you want to be 100% sure, please apply for the visa in advance.
We found some reasons that cause you can not obtain the Visa-free.
1. The validity of your passport less than 3 months.
2. Worked or been to Iraq, Turkey.
There must be more reasons but we just don’t know yet. (The latest update on Apr. 24, 2018)
