China Plans to Expand Visa-Free Policy

The Chinese government is considering further expanding its 72-hour visa-free policy to additional areas throughout China, as well as continuing its efforts in expediting visa processing to other areas of China. The 72-hour visa-free policy is currently in place for travelers from the United States, Canada and 49 other countries, and allows transit passengers to enter select Chinese cities for up to 72 hours without a visa. Passengers with a booked plane ticket to a third country or region for within 72 hours can explore Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Chengdu, Kunming, Chongqing, Shenyang, Dalian, Guilin and Xi’an visa-free. Tourism officials hope that the visa-free allowances will boost tourism to these areas of China.
