SINGAPORE, Sept 29 (Reuters) – China will resume visa-free policies and consider adding more countries to its visa-exemption list to help boost the country’s post-pandemic tourism business, according to a policy document released on Friday.
More international flights will be resumed or added, China’s State Council said.
In a statement posted on the central government’s website, it said visa-free policies and visa assurances on arrival would be promoted as well as smoother immigration clearances for cruises and self-driving tourists.
The government also called for enhanced tax-rebate services such the creation of more tax-rebate shops.
