Hi there, everyone:
Can anyone help me with a query I have? I know that you need six months' validity in your passport in order to enter Mainland China, but how is that calculated? Is it simply that you must have 180 days in your passport left, or is it calculated differently? The situation is that I need to go from HK to China in the next few days. For that, I need a visa. Today, I have 184 days (or what one date calculator suggests is 6 months and 3 days)' validity left in my passport; so if I go to get a visa tomorrow, do you think I'll be counted as eligible or not?
All the best, and thanks for any advice.
Why don't you check with the embassy but from what i understand most countries require that you still have 6 months validity on your passport UPON ENTRY so if you arrive 22 Feb the passport would have to be valid on 22nd august
