Xi’an Launches 72-hour Visa-free Policy

The city that is home to the world-famous Terracotta Warriors, Xi’an, is the latest Chinese city to launch a 72-hour visa-free stay policy for travelers from 51 countries.

Travelers from United States, Canada and 49 other countries will be able to take advantage of the new policy, allowing transit passengers to enter Xi’an for up to 72 hours without a visa. Passengers with a booked plane ticket to a third country or region for within 72 hours will be able to stop and explore Xi’an, Shaanxi’s capital city, without a visa, making visiting this area even more convenient.

Xi’an is the eighth city in China to allow this new policy, joining Beijing, Shanghai, Chongqing, Guangzhou, Chengdu, Shenyang and Dalian. Tourism officials hope that the visa-free allowances will boost tourism to these areas of China.
