GUANGZHOU SIGNS UP FOR 72-HOUR VISA SCHEME SCMP, Macau Daily News

Guangzhou is set to become the third mainland city to offer 72-hour transit visas to travelers from dozens of countries.  The city's inclusion in the short-term visa scheme was announced by provincial authorities who described it as a boon for tourism in the Pearl River Delta.  Beijing and Shanghai introduced the visas last year.

 

Cheong Chi Man, Vice-president of Macau Travel Agency Association, said the measure will not be a driver to boost the number of package tour visitors to Macau, but it is expected to bring more individual visitors.
