      Visa in HKD or Yuan?

      by danielribo Online Now Oct 25, 2012 at 12:17 AM

      I'm an Australian and I'm looking to head over the boarder into Shenzen for a day. I will be able to buy a visa at Lu Ho, however do I need Yuan or can I pay in HKD? If Yuan, is there an ATM available before the visa office (after leaving HK?).

      Do they issue a full sized sticker visa as per the usual chinese ones, or is it just a stamp? (I'm running out of pages in my passport!).

      Shekou to HKG Ferry

      by gaolei Online Now Jan 24, 2012 at 12:40 PM

      I think the ferry leaves around 0800, but every website I go to has different times. Does anyone one know the time of the first ferry from Shekou to Hong Kong Airport. Is there a site to sign up for a ticket? Usually I buy it at the hotel, but thought it might be worth trying to get it online.

      If you have not tried this ferry from Shenzhen, it really is worth trying. It departs on schedule. Many airlines have counters there, so you can check into your flight, give them your baggage, and just go to the plane when you get to HKG. Customs and Immigration take place at the ferry terminal!

      Visa into Shenzhen if holding a HK ID? (UK passport!)

      Like most people, am very confused with costs and procedures for obtaining a visa into Shenzhen via Lo Wu, esp as it appears to change constantly.

      I am a UK citizen but given the exorbitant fees applied against UK passport holders, am wondering whether i can pay a smaller fee if i just flash my HK ID at the border?

      Any help would be appreciated
