About:72-Hour Visa-Free Transit FAQ

Do I qualify for the free night visa?

We're considering flying China Eastern LAX-PVG-KIX. The layover in Shanghai is only 3 hrs on the way to Osaka, but on the way back is only 1 hr 40 min. Does this qualify for the free night transit? And are the transit times realistic, especially the 1 hr 40 min? I really do not want to miss the connection flight. Thanks!

You are eligible for the 24-hour visa-free transit, but there's not a lot for you to see for a transit time that short. If you decided to leave the airport you need to consider the possibility of spending ~1 hour at departure immigration and security check during the rush hours.
