A VISA-FREE policy allowing travelers to stay in Shanghai for 48 hours before leaving for their next foreign destination may be extended, the city's border police said yesterday.

The visa-free policy is seen as part of the city's efforts to attract more travelers and visitors and enhance Shanghai's reputation as an air transport hub.
Lu Zhitao, deputy director of the Shanghai Exit and Entrance Frontier Inspection Station, said yesterday that the new policy would "greatly benefit passengers and airlines as well."
