Fair warning re: APEC visa free travel. I landed at PVG with APEC card and a letter from the Chinese Consul attesting to visa free travel. PVG immigration said no, their ambassador’s wrong! Before I called the Foreign Ministry, the supervisor asked how many days in China? I said 3 before HK. She said I was in luck because PVG is an in-transit port, allowing 72 hrs entry. I was told to get a visa in HK or be denied reentry. The hotel in HK wanted US$700+ to do it, so I did it myself. Cost an extra day’s hotel and new one way air too.
