  1. Hi, we are visiting 2 ports of call in China next March and are looking into the visa requirements For Shanghai we believe we can use the 72 hr transit visa for that stay (overnight) and then several days later we are visiting Shekou in the Guandong province which is different from Shanghai province Can we include this port of call in the 144 hr transit visit as well as Shanghai The visa agencies dont do the free visas for you, only the chargeable visas plus their own costs thanks

  5. We are considering a World cruise for 4 months and are struggling to find affordable insurance for that period for over 60s. While single trip insurance is available at high cost, annual multi trip cover is hard to find. We are 61 and 64 with no significant health issues. We have had 90 days insurance recently but there doesnt seem to be a lot out there for World cruises of 120 days. Just had a quote from for £4,700 !! would love to hear your feedback
