Visa requirements for Shanghai
The visa requirements for Shanghai vary depending on your nationality and your reason for wishing to travel or stay in mainland China. The only visa types that you can obtain without additional support from a local business, government or educational institution are the transit visa and the tourist visa. The other main types of visas are the work visa, study visa and business visa.

Work and student visas are generally issued for a period of 30 days. This allows you the opportunity to then request a Temporary Residence Permit upon arrival, to extend your stay (usually to a maximum of one year) with unlimited entries to the country.

When you are arriving on a work or student visa, then your employer or school/university should help you with the arrangements for your permit. This permit usually involves a physical examination, as well as you providing a number of documents along with your valid passport and accommodation confirmation that you need to arrange with the local police station.

The processing fees for Chinese visas also vary depending on your nationality. Passport holders from the following countries are covered under the Visa Fee Abolition Agreement and have no applicable fees for a visa (except for express processing fees): Pakistan, Maldives, Bulgaria, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Poland, Yugoslavia and Slovakia. It is generally suggested that the processing takes four working days.

Note that the PRC (People’s Republic of China) have different visa requirements for arrival in Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan.
