About:72-Hour Visa-Free Transit

changing flight in Shangai for Xiamen

I have a muti-destinations Paris to Fukuoka return ticket from Paris to Shangai, and to Xiamen by domestic flight, leaving from Xiamen 3 days later, then to Fukuoka (japan). My return from Fukuoka will be without stopover in Shangai. Is the 72hours visa time of my arrival in Xiamen start from Shangai or from Xiamen as the flight from Shangai will be on a domestic flight? (I am a french man)
Thank you for your answer.

When you go to Fukuoka from Paris, you cannot enjoy the 72 hour free transit in Xiamen because the 72 hour policy stipulates that one can only transit in one city, but you will stop in two Chinese cities.
When you return, if you stay in Xiamen for less than 72 hours, you can enjoy the 72 hour free transit in Xiamen.
So you need to apply for a transit G type or tourist L type for your first stopover in Shanghai and Xiamen.
