Hawaii of Chinese visitorsThousands of Chinese visitors are keeping away from Hawaii in the fear visa rejection. The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported that more than 2,000 Nu Skin distributors in China and Hong Kong who were intending to attend a conference in Hawaii were unsuccessful because of visa issues.

 

The convention of the direct marketing company has all the possibility of becoming the largest incentive travel group in Hawaii from China. It has been found that 10 to 15 percent of the visa applications of large group traveling get denied in Hawaii. Other US cities along with Hawaii have been working along with US Travel Association to work for visa improvements. China U.S. Tourism Leadership Summit which was held in 2011 in Kailua-Kona helped in lessening visa processing time and introduction of nonstop flights and longer-term visas allowed the growth in tourism.

 
To quote Reene Ho-Phang, managing director of Hawaii Tourism China, ‘Everyone is keenly awaiting a meeting next month between China’s President Xi Jinping and President Trump. We’ve observed that group demand has cascaded a bit. Word has spread in the industry, and it’s impacting other groups. Some are postponing group bookings by a year.’On the other hand, Nu Skin issue has made other interested visitors stressful about securing visa as expressed by Ho-Phang.
