With an intention to boost tourism in China, the Chinese government has introduced the TWOV (Transit Without a Visa) scheme for travelers who don’t want to go through the complicated visa application process of China. Initially it was to improve tourism in cities like Shanghai and Beijing, but with the successful results of the program, it has now included several more cities into the program which also includes Guangzhou. Travelers from United States can first travel to any other country like Japan, then fly to China with a visa exemption (stay in transit for 72 hours) and finally fly back to US. The most popular airlines operating from the US cities to Guangzhou include American Airlines running frequently in the shortest route of Los Angeles to Guangzhou.
However, you need to follow some rules to avail a transit visa on your arrival to the city. First of all, make sure the airport you arrive and depart from are the same.
