Mileage run: 2 hours in PVG enough to go through customs?

Hi all,

I have a mileage run coming up where I land in PVG at 11:05PM (JFK-SVO, SVO-PVG) and then would be trying to take a 1:05AM flight (PVG-SVO, SVO-JFK). This leaves me with 2 hours to catch my return flight home. Because PVG is my final destination, I'm not sure if 2 hours will be enough time to exit security and re-enter through security. Is this cutting it too close?

You should still be able to go through transit security I would think. No different than flying to say, NRT on a separate ticket unless you're checking a bag and the transit desk isn't able to check it.

I highly doubt that. PVG is the destination, not a transit point. In any event, this 2 hour turn should be easy.

Apologies for stating the obvious, but make sure you have a valid PRC visa.

If you've a valid Visa for the PRC, it will be perfectly doable.
If not, you'll not make it on the plane to SVO (from JFK, actually..)
