From December 1, the Chinese authorities are introducing a visa-free regime for citizens of five EU countries (Spain, Italy, the Netherlands, France and Germany) and Malaysia. This was reported by the official representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Mao Ning.
“China has decided to expand the scope of the unilateral visa-free regime to facilitate the movement of people between China and the outside world for the benefit of intensive development and maintaining a high level of openness,” Mao Ning said. Visa-free travel for these countries will be valid on an experimental basis until November 30, 2024.
The official representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs added that representatives of the listed states will be able, having a regular passport, without a visa, to make business and tourist trips to China, and to visit relatives and friends for 15 days.
