For the first time since the commencement of the Covid epidemic, China will start providing visas to visitors from other countries.
When China reopens its borders for the first time in three years, the country’s embassy in the US announced that all types of visas for tourists visiting the country will be issued beginning on 15th March.
Wendy Wu, the company’s creator, stated: “As it stands, we are very confident that, following the news that US travellers will be able to obtain tourist visas from March 15, the news from China for UK travellers is imminent.”
“As the UK’s number one specialist travel company to China from the UK, Australia and New Zealand, we will be the first to know and will advise agents immediately.”
Following the country’s officials’ declaration of triumph over the virus last month, this final cross-border control measure, implemented to lower the number of Covid-19 cases in the nation, has been loosened.
Visa-free entrance will once again be available in parts of China that did not require them before the outbreak, according to the government.
Also, it stated that Beijing would relax its limitations in a number of areas, including Shanghai ports used by cruise ships visiting Hainan Island.
Entry into China will also be permitted for those with valid visas issued before to 28th March 2020.
The Advantage Travel Partnership’s chief executive, Julia Lo Bue-Said, said: “China reopening its borders and issuing visas to foreign travellers after three years is another major step in the full recovery of the travel industry, following the unprecedented disruption of the pandemic.
“The removal of China’s travel restrictions will provide a significant boost to the global travel industry, with tens of millions travelling to and from the country each year.
“Following this news, we expect Advantage members to see a surge in bookings to China from both leisure and corporate travellers. For anyone planning to visit China we strongly recommend booking via your local travel agent, as they can advise on the best itinerary, have access to great value deals and can help navigate the complexities of travel to this destination, including the visa application process.”
