China and UK to offer each other 2-year multiple-entry visas

  • Published by Ozgur Tore

china uk ministersBritain's Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond begins two days of talks with China's Foreign Minister Wang Yi. Chinese foreign minister says China and UK will offer each other 2-year multiple-entry visas starting this year. Currently, Chinese tourists are limited to six-month visas. The new policy is seen as the latest move from the UK to win a slice of China’s high spending outbound tourism market which is the biggest in the world.

Philip Hammond, UK Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs said, “From next week, Chinese nationals will be able to apply for a two-year multiple-entry visa to the UK for the same price as they currently apply for a six-month single-entry visa. And we will be extending our on-demand mobile biometric service to a total of fifty sets across China making it easier and faster for Chinese people to apply for visas to visit the UK."

During the meeting the two foreign ministers also issued a statement on Syria, agreeing to advance counter-terrorism efforts and a political settlement to end the conflict in the country.
