It may be more convenient for many international travellers to reach Shenzhen through Hong Kong International Airport, then taking a bus, ferry or train to Shenzhen. Those travelling from Hong Kong to Shenzhen by bus or train are also required to pass through immigration entering and leaving Hong Kong. Those travelling by ferry from Hong Kong International Airport are not required to pass through immigration in Hong Kong – go directly to the ferry terminal without exiting the airport. Remember though, do not pass through immigration and customs in Hong Kong.
Everyone transferring from Hong Kong International Airport to Shenzhen has to pass through one of the several ports of entry. Your choice depends on your arrival time and personal preference. Huanggang Port is open 24 hours, while the ports of Futian and Shenzhen Bay are open between 6:30am and 12:00pm.
