“Unlock the Maritime Silk Road, Embark on a Ningbo Adventure.” Located in the middle of the coastline of mainland China, Ningbo is an important port city in the southeast coast of China, an economic center in the south wing of the Yangtze River delta, and a state-level historical and cultural city. The special geographical position and advantaged coastal conditions make Ningbo a main port for China’s maritime Silk Road and an important link between the inland waterway and the sea.
Ningbo is authentic Chinese culture. It is truly ancient, deeply spiritual, a natural playground, an ocean escape, a seafood lovers’ paradise, a business hub, the start port of Maritime Silk Road, the end of the Grand Canal and a modern 21st century city. Now there is a new policy that will give foreigners more options if they want to travel in China.
From December 1st, 2019, the Ningbo government is implementing a convenient new 144-hour visa-exemption transit policy. Foreigners who possess a valid passport can apply for visa-free entry to Ningbo at the entry-exit gate of your port of arrival. To do this you must show proof of a connecting flight to a third country within the valid 144 hour period. Your stay in China cannot exceed 144 hours, which is 6 days. Foreigners can enter or exit from the Ningbo Airport or other ports in Jiangsu, Zhejiang and Shanghai that admit the visa exemption transit policy, like the Shanghai seaport, or Shanghai, Nanjing or Hangzhou airports.
