Futian Checkpoint Station (Chinese: 福田口岸站) is a terminus of Shenzhen Metro Longhua Line. It started operations on 28 June 2007. It is located at the ground level of Futian Port Control Point (Chinese: 福田口岸管制站) in Futian District, Shenzhen, People's Republic of China, and it is the only ground station in Shenzhen Metro. Futian Port Control Point and Futian Checkpoint Station are connected to Hong Kong's Lok Ma Chau Station by a footbridge.
The station was called "Huanggang Station" (Chinese: 皇岗站) because its location is near Huanggang, which is also an immigration control point between Shenzhen and Hong Kong. But it has been renamed to "Futiankouan Station" since 15 August 2008 to avoid confusion between Futian Port and Huanggang Port. "Kouan" (口岸) means a (immigration) port. Starting from July 1, 2010, with MTR Shenzhen taking over the operations and management of Longhua Line, the English name Futian Checkpoint is now being used.
There are a total of 4 levels in Futian Checkpoint Station. The 2nd and 3rd levels (above ground) are immigration facilities (being the arrivals hall and departures hall respectively), while the 1st level is the station concourse. The 2 side platforms and an island platform is located on the lowest level (ground floor), but only one island platform and 1 side platform is used in daily operations. Among them, the side platform serves as the unloading platform for trains arriving at the station, while the other island platform is used as the boarding platform for trains departing the station. This method is called the Spanish solution.
The station has 2 exits. In addition, the station is located in the Futian Port Control Point building, and passengers may proceed to MTR Lok Ma Chau Station in Hong Kong after undergoing immigration procedures.
