Brit (cruisers) Denied Entry Into China

Recommended Posts

It looks like the passengers chose the Visa Waiver rather than the full Visa which seemed to cause problems for them. 


I know for places like China and India I am more wary of just using the e-visa or visa waiver programs because over the years I have seen them change the rules on acceptance to enter the country. 


Having said that all Visa waiver even ESTA they say there is no guarantee you can enter the country, though the majority of visitors have no problem.

It seems like this visa issue with Shanghai has been going on forever.  I'm looking at several cruises to Asia for next fall and on the Princess web site,  those involving Shanghai state a visa is necessary.  There are certain countries in the world where I would never take a chance with the sketchy and confusing information about visa free transits and China is one of them.  If I go through or visit Shanghai, I will get a visa - do I really want my vacation screwed up for $150?
