For some foreign tourists, China makes easy border rules

 Wednesday, September 21, 2022 


The government of China has issued draft rules targeted at making it easier for few foreigners to enter the country for exploring the tourism sites along the border area of the country.

In Chinese border areas, travel groups arrangedd by tour agencies can select their port of entry as well as exit, in a hassle-free way, on Monday, the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, explained about this in a statement without emphasizing on dates and locations.

Since the outbreak of the new coronavirus in 2020, China has closed its borders to international tourists with only specific groups of foreign nationals are being permitted to enter the country, like the one holding few types of work visas.

Rules have gradually been eased, in recent months, from restarting more direct flights between China and few countries to permitting international students with valid residence permits to enter the country.

Also, for foreign arrivals, quarantine rule has been reduced.

With more than 10 countries comprising Mongolia, Russia, Myanmar, Laos and Vietnam, China shares its border.

Chinese cities along the border are frequently impacted by imported COVID cases which are linked to overland crossings of the foreigners as well as the Chinese nationals.

Yang Jinsong, head of the international tourism institute at China Tourism Academy, said that according to him, cross-border tourism will get well, although he can’t predict when it would happen.

He said that it depends on the situation of COVID and the impacts of the measures of virus control which the tourism department can’t make a decision.
