Hi, you don’t need visa because you are eligible for the 144 hr free transit and 24 hour direct transit in Shanghai and Beijing respectively if you travel like that. Nice trip!

Thank you, Gary. We enter HKG by AIR, but enter Shanghai by SHIP. We enter Beijing by SHIP and leave Beijing by AIR. Do you still think we do not need a visa ?

You don't need visa as long as your total layover time in Beijing is within 24 hours. Don't worry!
