Visa for Hong Kong?

I have booked a reservation to fly into and stay in Shenzhen in May. Also, i have received my Chinese Visa (single entry). I am from the U.S. My question concerns visiting Hong Kong during my Shenzhen stay. Will a need a seperate visa to either travel to/travel back from Hong Kong? If so, what is the best and easiest way to secure this visa. Thanks for your input !!

US citizens do not need a visa for Hong Kong for visits up to 90 days.

But if you go back to Shenzhen, you'll need another entry for your Chinese visa.

So, if you do US-China-HK-China-US, you need a dual-entry Chinese visa. If you go to Hong Kong twice, you need 3 entries.

How long will you be in Hong Kong? If you'll be there several days, it shouldn't be a problem to buy another visa there, but if it is just a day trip, I'm not sure you can get a visa in such a short time.

You can get Chinese visa same day in Hong Kong. Standard service is 4 days (Monday drop off, Thursday pickup). Express is overnight. Rush is same day.

Express is HK$150 (~US$19), Rush is HK$250 (~US$32); on top of regular vis fees.

Also check their holidays.
