The immigration authorities in Shanghai have recently turned away some frequent business visitors holding M business visas at the border.


Although the visitors were on legitimate M visas, the frequency and length of their visits suggested to immigration officials that they weren’t genuine business visitors, but were actually coming to China for work purposes.


Frequent business travelers to China who are planning to travel to Shanghai, including those holding a valid M visa, should check with the immigration authorities in Shanghai that their business travel schedule is considered legitimate.
