I checked and yes it looks like I have to actually get into Zhuhai to buy the tickets from the Guangdong something vendor at the main transit terminal that is attached with the Macau border and it is a 80,000 per day limit for availability.
Not sure if that many people actually show up to the show on the public days but I dedicated Fri and Sat and I get there Wed evening so I hope with a few days in advance I will be ok. I wonder if there are other boards out there involving more westerners visiting the airshow, perhaps one of the days I think it might be better to go along the perimeter road and spot from the other side as the sun light will be on your back for catching all the flying acts.

Yes it's getting pretty difficult. I just got an email from a travel agent in Hong Kong who had been trying to get an answer about the 3 day visa. She hasn't had a reply from Chinese consul and is of the impression that the visa will not be applicable for me.

I decided to cancel my hotel in Zhuhai while I still can without charge If there is any more info about visas and airshow tickets in Hong Kong I might make a day trip to Zhuhai but at the moment just exploring Hong Kong and possibly Macao will be good. Shame though - and did anyone else read about the testing of the Chinese nuclear powered hypersonic jet? Doubt that will be at the airshow though!

Dear mathewjg

By three day visa are you talking about the 72 hour transit waiver programme? If you are then as far as I know it doesn't apply to Zhuhai.
However it gets extended every few months and I have a 3 year multi visit visa so don't really pay too much attention to it. But unless it has dramatically changed it only applies if you fly/cruise ship into that city. It doesn't allow you to cross the Macau border without a visa.

I recommend you phone SUNRISE INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL CO.,LTD. on Monday. Hong Kong is 7 hours ahead of GMT. I have no connection with them personally, but I have gone there for my last four visas. They are literally next to the China Visa office so seem to have good connections.

Thanks for your reply. I am of the understanding that there is a 3 day visa for visiting the Zhuhai special economic region and its locally called a shopping visa. From what I have been told on trip advisor it can be obtained at the Zhuhai ferry port as well as the border crossing from Macao to Zhuhai. UK citizens pay about £50 but must be paid in Chinese currency. It seems entry is at the discretion of the Chinese entry officials but no one seems able to say what they base their decision on.

It would be great to try the new bridge now that its open for business but what are the chances of getting a visa in this situation - maybe take the ferry to Zhuhai and the bus back via the bridge.

Alternatively (according to the Chinese official website) a visa is not necessary if there is a a group tour (I think with 13 or more people) organised by an authorised Chinese travel agent. I spoke to a couple including trip.com and they are only interested if I book the flight and accommodation with them.

Others have described the visa as for emergencies eg a death in the family so again thankfully not applicable. So I just hope that there is truth in the Special economic Zone option.

It seems ridiculous to build the biggest sea bridge in the world but restrict the movement of foreigners unless they pay £150 for a 2 year visa.

Chinese embassy just sent me a link to their visa web page which does not show any options for a 3 day visa on arrival (the last time I looked)

Also for the airshow itself, they have now brought online a more western friendly website where tickets can be purchased and it includes the trade days as well.

https://zhuhaiairshowchina.com/

This makes things so much easier as I dont have to deal with the language barriers and all the other related hassles of having a physical ticket mailed to me. This looks like a site where I can order and just have it as a pdf ready immediately more in line with many western event vendors.

Also airshow list is now out..
No J-20 or any Russians.. Boo urns!! I am disappointed but I hope to be surprised.
I myself will buy a trade day and 1 public day, a second public day I am thinking of hiring a taxi driver to take me to the other side of the rwy to get shots that are properly sun lit.

Sounds good. Did you read the part where it says that they are not the organisers of the Airshow?

I have been in conversation with the friends of Airshow china 2018 and they have confirmed the following
Nov 10 is sold out
Its possible for UK citizens to get a 3 day visa when you arrive at Jiuzhou ferry port. Its costs RMB304 (£34) and can be paid using a bank card
You need passport sized photos - they charge RMB5 (£0.56) in cash
Shuttle bus takes 40 minutes from Jiuzhou ferry port. According to Friends of airshow the shuttle is chargeable

Not sure how much the return ferry cost is or whether the bridge is an option

You can get airshow tickets here. Prices are in US $
