China has re-opened borders for immigrants and tourists on the 6th January’2023 after 3 years since the Pandemic crises. Post Covid-19, China is now looking for much needed boost to Hong Kong’s tourism and International talented expats as the situation forced many to leave China during the pandemic. The government has started issuing passports to local Chinese citizens to visit family and friends living abroad and also extending visas for foreigners and students to immigrate to China for work, business and studies. Since January 8, 2023, China’s National Immigration Administration (NIA) has started resuming normal visa services for foreigners, port-visas, temporary entry permits and the 24/72/144-hour visa-free transit policy.
China has introduced flexible convenient visa rules for foreigners who want to work and invest here. A special multiple-entry visitor’s visa has been adopted where a 12 month’s stay is permitted per visit. This visa has a validity up to 5 years. Similarly, a work visa is permitted for 2-5 years with multiple entry rights.
