Chinese Transit Visa
Transit Visa For Whom?
If you are entering other countries via China, you may need a Chinese transit visa. It allows you to stay in China for 7-10 days as transit visitor, so you could pop out of the airport and explore around the city. For EU/UK passport, you will not need to get a transit visa if you are transiting via China for less than 72 hrs, but you do need to get the transit visa if you are visiting North Korea.
