Shenzhen visa for UK passport holder

Anyone know if they actually put the 5 day visa in your passport when crossing from Hong Kong? I've run out of pages in my passport and was hoping it might be a visa on a separate piece of paper...

The visa is attached to your passport and takes up a full page.

I think that they require that you have two blank pages.

It may be easier if you can go to your embassy or consulate and ask to have pages added to your passport.

Yes, you definitely require two pages - or 1-and-a-half . The extra space is for the four stamps in and out!!

Yes but you will also need two stamps for out & back in to HK, which is why the rule says two pages. I fill passports annually this way!

No. Sorry. That rule is only taking care for the China mainland stamps. You come with one of the four stamps you describe to the visa office already. China mainland wants enough space to put their stamp and maybe the second. You could even leave Cina completely from Shenzhen.

I am sure as long as you have space for the visa and there can be some stamps squeezed somewhere, they will issue the visa.

I make them to put stamp over stam sometimes to save space... :)
