Guangzhou | Exports to SARs to receive special treatment

Guangzhou’s immigration authority has launched two policies aiming to provide convenient immigration measures to serve Macau and Hong Kong in terms of cargo services.
The Guangzhou immigration authority, which oversees immigration missions in seven cities – Guangzhou, Foshan, Dongguan, Zhaoqing, Qingyuan, Yunfu and Shaoguan – manages a total of 122 mainland ports for export.
Green channels for fresh products for export to the Hong Kong and Macau markets have been opened, meaning that ferry terminals in the seven aforementioned cities will introduce priority inspections of fresh products bound for the SARs.
According to the policy, and in order to facilitate the Hong Kong International Airport’s expansion, Guangzhou has eased the immigration inspection procedure for boats which participate in the expansion project.
According to the policies, in the future, international voyages that need to stay in the Pearl River estuary for more than 24 hours will be able to go through border inspection procedures at any port in Guangzhou, though certain restrictions will apply.
Besides the outlined measures, further policies currently at the proposal stage will “benefit more than 23 million tourists, workers, 80,000 boats and a large number of enterprises,” according to mainland government sources. JZ
