China reopens borders to foreigners first time since COVID-19 pandemic
China on Tuesday announced the full reopening of its borders after three years of strict anti-Coronavirus measures.
The Chinese foreign ministry announced in Beijing that “all types of visas for foreigners will be issued again” from Wednesday.
China reopened its borders at the beginning of January primarily for business travellers and family visits.
Now tourists can regularly travel to the country again, while visa-free entry to some regions is restored.
Long-term visas issued before the border closure on March 28, 2020, can also be used again, according to the statement.
