    Hello,

    does the ticket need to be ticketed on same ticket or can I use different company for the last leg. E.g. Having SAS to fly from Stockholm to Shanghai and then with another company after 5 days, lets say e.g. Air Asia to Bangkok.

    Hi,
    Any ticket with confirmed seat and valid visa (if required) to a third country are needed for the entry. Passengers are required to leave from the same airport they arrived at, except in Shanghai, where they can enter or leave from any port.

    they’re not required to leave from the same airport/port, one may enter/leave from any of the airports in the above mentioned region, plus other kinds of ports of Shanghai.
