The government authority of the People's Republic of China has announced a Visa-Free entry for some immigrants wishing to explore the country.
China, which suffered a critical lockdown since 2019 due to the outbreak of the deadly COVID-19 disease, started opening up for immigrants early this year.
To boost the economic viability of China and make the country more accessible as it has been to foreigners, the Chinese authority, according to the government's spokesman, Mao Ning, stated on Friday, December 21, 2023, that the country has now opened its border to some foreigners.
Mao Ning stated "The citizens from France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, and Malaysia will be able to travel to the country visa-free.
Citizens of the countries mentioned above can visit China holding only their passports with no visa, but their activities in the country and how long they can stay are limited.
"The service would be available from December 1 this year to November 30, 2024. Under the visa rules, the citizens from aforementioned countries would be able to enter China without a visa and stay for no more than 15 days for business, tourism, family visits and transit purposes," Mao Ning stated.
The positioning of China in East Asia encompasses diverse landscapes, from mountains and plateaus to deserts and coastlines, boasting rich biodiversity. As the world's most populous country, China has a population exceeding 1.4 billion.
It draws a significant number of tourists annually, averaging around 150 million visitors. Noteworthy destinations include the Great Wall, a symbol of ancient Chinese civilization, the Forbidden City showcasing imperial history in Beijing, the Terracotta Army in Xi'an, and the picturesque karst landscapes of Guilin.
Other popular spots are the bustling metropolis of Shanghai, the Yangtze River cruise offering stunning views, and the Panda Research Base in Chengdu, home to the beloved giant pandas. China's vastness offers a myriad of attractions blending history, culture, and natural wonders, making it a prominent global tourism hotspot.
Countries not included in the Chinese visa-free entry can join the scheme by first visiting the mentioned countries from where they can now launch their Chinese destination.
