Shanghai ports put into use 34 self-service entry-exit record printing machines

    Shanghai General Station of Immigration Inspection today started using 34 self-service entry-exit record printing machines at Hongqiao International Airport, Shanghai Port International Cruise Terminal, and Wusongkou International Cruise Terminal.

    When travellers use the automated clearance passages, there's no need to get stamps on their entry and exit documents. For the travellers who have the need to have physical entry and exit records, there are also self-service entry-exit records printers, on which the travellers can print their latest entry or exit.

    The self-service printed records use multiple anti-counterfeiting technologies, and they have equal status in law with the immigration inspection stamps.

    Shanghai now has 139 self-service entry and exit clearance passages. Next, the general station will add 17 more self-service passages to Pudong International Airport, and several more to the second phase construction project of Wusongkou International Cruise Terminal.

    Last year, the number of entries and exits reached 598 million on the Chinese mainland. Shanghai ports handled 43.75 million entries and exits, accounting for 7.3 percent of the total or an average of 120,000 entries and exits a day.
