With regards to the 72 hr waiver, wonder what would happen if you show transit within 72 hours to another country and then change once you get into the country to go to PVG etc

...and when you leave PVG they're going to ask you for your documentation. What do you show them in your scenario?

I'm not sure that they'll look for the reason u have the exemption upon departure. My guess is worse case a fine....

At this point, Visas for Americans in countries like China, India, Brazil and Russia seem like ways to pay back America for the way that we inconvinience their people

Your second point is definitely the case AFAIK, but still not sure what you're suggesting with the first.

I've never used the 72-hour visa, but I assume you get some sort of stamp or documentation that allows you in the country which is reviewed by immigration upon exiting China. Changing your ticket to PVG just delays the inevitable, immigration comparing entry and exit times.

Can I fly into Beijing from HKG and within 72 fly out to a different country? Or the outbound flight has to be the same place I came from (HKG)?

Must be a 3rd country, so not HKG.

So I may come from HKG and just have a ticket to a different country?

Can the flight ex-PEK be on a seperate ticket, or it has to be on the same ticket as into PEK?

If you land in PEK you must stay in PEK. You can't visit another city within the 72 hours. Whether the Great Wall is part of PEK or if they care is up for debate.

Bottom line - can the Great Wall be visited while on a 72 hour visa?
