China is planning to fully reopen its borders to foreigners, but there are still some obstacle

 China closed its borders to most overseas visitors in an attempt to keep Covid-19, Travelers holding multi-year visas issued before March 28, 2020  would be allowed to use them so long as they had not expired.

 

In a Chinese-language statement posted on its website Monday, China’s Embassy in the United States said the country would resume issuing all categories of visas for foreigners from Wednesday.

 

Chinese authorities last month declared a “major and decisive victory” in their handling of the coronavirus outbreak that had swept the country following an abrupt relaxation of Beijing’s “zero-Covid” policy late last year.

 

After three years of pandemic border restrictions, China is fully reopening to foreign visitors – including tourists.
