PVG | Shanghai Pudong Terminal 2

Duty Free at Shanghai Pudong airport is allowed both on arrival and in the departure lounge. Tax Free shopping applies only to international passengers, not those travelling internally in China. Pudong airport is increasing the size of their baggage claim stores, so to accommodate the demand for arrival shopping.

Many gateway airports in China have arrivals duty free outlets in the baggage halls, where you can buy tax-free goods before you pass through customs and the Government is increasing the number of locations where arrivals duty free is permitted.

If you are taking a connecting flight within China, it is best to buy at your first point of arrival into the country. These arrivals duty free stores not only enable you to pick up any last minute items that you were unable to buy at your outbound airport, but it gives you duty free shopping on landing, to buy liquid products such as liquors or wine. This can help to avoid any potential problems of confiscation by security.
