New transit visa rules went into effect in Guangdong yesterday, according to GD Today, with travelers from 53 countries now able to enjoy six days of visa-free exploration when entering China at Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport, Shenzhen Bao’an International Airport or Jieyang Chaoshan International Airport.

To qualify for the 144-Hour Visa-Free Transit Policy, travelers must have a valid passport and onward ticket to a third country. Also, once approved, visitors will be expected to stay within Guangdong province.
