World’s fastest visa check is in Shanghai Airport

  • Published by Vedat
Shanghai’s Pudong International Airport has the speediest visa checks of any major airport in the world, according to an industry body survey.

china-immigrationAirports Council International, a trade representative of the world’s airports, tested more than 100 major airports around the globe in the third quarter and ranked Pudong first in terms of “waiting time for visa check.”

Terminal 2 of the Pudong International Airport can open up to 47 channels and deal with 70 to 90 passengers in a minute.

Almost 70,000 passengers use the airport daily, with a record high of 95,000.

This is the first time for a domestic airport to top the ranking, Xinmin Evening News reported.

Beijing Capital International Airport had ranked second previously but this time dropped to third, its place taken by Seoul Incheon International Airport.

China has two more airports on the top 10 list. The Longjia International Airport in Changchun, capital of northeastern China’s Jilin Province, ranked fifth, followed by the Meilan International Airport in Haikou, capital of the southern island province Hainan.

The Pudong International Airport has been China’s mainland’s busiest airport for 10 years.

It has an advanced electronic system to monitor passenger flow, while batches of officers receive training every week.

Every quarter, ACI asks an institution to determine and review airports around the world, in a survey based on 36 standards, such as facilities and service.
