Beijing Planning Tax Refunds for Tourists

The Beijing Tourism Development Commission recently announced that it is working on a plan for tourists to claim tax refunds on shopping in Beijing. Details of the plan are still being determined, but the commission hopes the policy helps bolster spending in the destination. In addition to tax refunds, authorities are also working to make visa applications easier for foreign visitors, with incentives such as 72-hour visa-free stays in Beijing and other cities throughout China.
