Hainan - Visa

Just wanted to come back to confirm - what JieJie wrote in the email is correct.

I just returned from the island over the weekend. Only deviations I observed are

- I actually got a single entry visa valid for 30 days [not 15 days as stated]
- the price paid was much cheaper compared to the normal per-arrival China visa
- you can pay either in HKD or RMB - there is a list countries and what you have to pay which I actually have no idea what's the difference - from what I gathered, it is the fees in either HKD or RMB. Which currency you pay in depends on the exchange rate.
- the process took less than 10 mins - only 1 passport needed. I was not asked to show the return ticket nor accommodation information.
