Chongqing is one of the Chinese cities that supports the 72-hour transit visa on arrival program, which means that selected nationalities (all citizens of the European Union, as well as several other countries including Albania, Argentina, Australia, Belarus, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Iceland, Japan, Macedonia, Mexico, Monaco, Montenegro, New Zealand, Qatar, Russia, South Korea, Switzerland, Ukraine, and United States) are eligible for a transit visa. For longer stays, a visa must be pre-arranged in advance, so consult your local embassy for details. You must bring your passport at all times and all hotels will insist on seeing it for check-in. It is mandatory to present your passport when buying train tickets; you will also need it for using internet cafes that accept foreigners. The Chinese government requires that your passport must be valid for at least six months when entering the country. You will need at least one entire blank page in your passport for the visa. Take an ID card with your photo in case you lose your passport and make photocopies of your passport as your embassy may need these before issuing a new one in case of loss. You must report the loss to the local Public Security Bureau (PSB), which will issue you with a 'Statement of Loss of Passport'.
