Well I've never needed one....i understand some airlines don't require one as long as you're staying within the airport until you next flight
transiting through turkey
Transit visa doesn’t have anything to do with airlines. It’s a country policy not airlines policy.

I understand that...said airline in the context of National Carriers acting on behalf of their countries....Emirates/Dubai, Turkish?Turkey..Qatar/Qatar

Emirates and Qatar Airline process visa/transit visa directly from their website

Hello Nairalanders.....A close friend of mine was to return to Nigeria from china early this year but due to covid-19 pandemic decided to stay back a bit till everything was clear...

Fast forward to now after booking for his flight ticket which has a stopover in hongkong,he was denied boarding a plane in Shanghai cos he doesn't have an hongkong transit visa which he never knew of or told and his visa expires in 3days and getting the hongkong transit visa takes 4 weeks.....

Please experienced nairaland travellers and guys currently residing in China, please what countries can he has stop-overs or connecting flights to that doesn't require transit visa... .

Pls help urgently so he won't overstay his visa or have issues with Chinese authorities because he is operating under a low budget after expending so much to exorbitant flight tickets rates and other Chinese authorities wahala....


Please I need y'all advice before I book another flight ticket for him before 7am Shanghai time
I have flown Etihad airways and didn't require visa because I didn't come out of the airport b4 connecting my flight. Same with Dubai airport. You only require visa if you gonna exit the airport to the city. Try Etihad and fly Emirates

He should book his flight with Qatar Airways. They fly through Qatar and no transit Visa required.

Now, let your friend know that Someone has, not just Shanghai in His hands, but the whole world - His Name is JESUS; let your friend talk to Him, and you intercede on his behalf too, you will definitely come back with a testimony, this I know, bc am talking out of experience.

Book Etihad for him.. I used Etihad last year. I had just one stop over at UAE. It was a nice experience with lots of care onboard... Hong Kong and China na enemies ooo

I tried visiting Hong Kong during my visit to China, the moment I mentioned it to my Chinese homies, the guy just change face... That was even the heat of the Hong Kong protest against the Chinese Government... I wish your guy safe journey.

Can't he find his way to Beijing or shanghai and take Ethiopian airlines or connect via another Chinese city and take an airline that doesn't require transit visa? There is no way that all flights from China to turkey for example first goes to the UK. They are all direct to Turkey. Some of the middle east airlines also go from China to the middle east. I think there is an element of financial difficulty impacting the flight decision as he probably wants to fly direct from the city he is in right now rather than connecting within China to take other airlines.
