Recently, an industry body survey revealed that Shanghai’s Pudong International Airport has the speediest visa checks of any major airport in the world.



Airports Council International, a trade representative of the world’s airports, tested more than 100 major airports around the globe in the third quarter and ranked Pudong first in terms of “waiting time for visa check.”


The Pudong International Airport has been China’s mainland’s busiest airport for 10 years. Almost 70,000 passengers use the airport daily, with a record high of 95,000. It has an advanced electronic system to monitor passenger flow, while batches of officers receive training every week.
