The Shanghai Entry and Exit Administration Bureau has a new location. The new complex is in the Pudong New Area at No. 1500 Minsheng Road (near Yinchun Road). Use the Bureau for passports, visas and resident permits (cards). The new location is much larger than the old. Also, parking is available with 80 parking spaces.
People’s complaints about the former Shanghai Bureau prompted the move. The Shanghai Entry and Exit Administration Bureau on No. 1500 Minsheng Road is better organized with no congestion and long lines. There are three reception halls and sixty reception desks for the patrons.
The Shanghai Entry and Exit Administration Bureau's first floor is for native Chinese desiring passports for foreign travel including Hong Kong and Macau. The second floor is for the use of overseas Chinese. And finally, the third floor is for foreigners seeking visas and resident permits (cards).
Take note. The Shanghai Entry and Exit Bureau is in the Pudong New Area at No. 1500 Minsheng Road (near Yinchun Road). The Bureau is open during the hours 9:00 - 11:30 A.M. and 1:30 - 4:30 P.M. Monday thru Friday. The telephone number is 86-21-63577925.
Invest in a passport holder to hold the documents. I prefer the kind which is waterproof and worn as belt around the waist. It is worn under your clothes and not seen by others. There is a zipper compartment divided for passport, money and credit cards. It is so comfortable the wearer can sleep with it around the waist.
The type which hang about the neck invites trouble and who wants someone pulling on a strong cord around the neck. Remember to carry the amount of money needed for the day’s activities in your pocket and the rest placed away safely.
