China’s visa-free policy – level 3

08-12-2023 07:00

China’s recent visa-free travel policy, implemented on December 1, has positively impacted tourism.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs aims to continually adjust visa policies to enhance cross-border travel conditions. Approximately 7,000 out of nearly 18,000 travelers from France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, and Malaysia entered China in the initial three days of December. Daily average tourist numbers from these countries increased by 39% in the first three days compared to the last day of November.

This move is part of China’s efforts to revive its tourism sector post-COVID-19 restrictions. The government also seeks to improve its global image, as revealed by a recent survey that indicated negative perceptions of China in 24 countries.

Difficult words: enhance (to intensify or improve), revive (to give new strength or energy to).
