The Chinese National Immigration Administration announced on Friday that travelers from 59 nations will have prolonged Hainan visa-free access.
This extension covers a wide range of activities, such as business endeavors, travel, seeing family, receiving medical care, going to exhibitions, and playing sports.
The list of qualified 59 countries is as follows:
|North America (3)
|South America (3)
United Arab Emirates
Lengthened Stay Durations
The updated regulation allows eligible travelers to spend up to 30 days in Hainan Province, giving them plenty of time to take in the sights and participate in a variety of activities. Compared to the prior policy, which restricted visa-free stays to travel, this is a significant rise.
The New Policy’s Objectives
The revised visa-free policy is in line with larger programs meant to encourage change and transparency throughout Hainan. By establishing the province as a major center for global trade and tourism, it highlights the government’s dedication to fostering the growth of the Hainan Free Trade Port.
Through the expansion of visa-free entry choices and the simplification of entry procedures, China hopes to improve Hainan’s attractiveness to tourists from across the world, draw in foreign capital, and promote economic growth in a number of industries.
