 Is China reopening its borders with European countries? Response from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs


Haiwai.com, August 11 (according to the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs), foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian presided over a regular press conference on August 11. The relevant contents are as follows:

Agence France Presse: the Chinese Embassy in Denmark issued a notice yesterday, saying that people holding Chinese valid residence permits from European countries can apply to Chinese embassies and consulates in these countries for visa applications. Does this mean that China is reopening its borders to European countries, including EU Member States?

Zhao Lijian: I answered the relevant questions yesterday. Since March 28, the Chinese government has temporarily suspended most foreigners from entering China with valid visa and residence permit at that time. However, at the same time, it has actively provided visa facilities for foreigners who come to China to engage in necessary economic and trade, scientific and technological activities, and for urgent humanitarian needs. Recently, with the control of the epidemic situation in many countries, the demand for personnel communication has increased. To this end, China is gradually and orderly releasing the visa for returning to work and production and other necessary personnel to come to China. It should be noted that for those who hold valid visa or residence permit and need to apply for a new visa, Chinese embassies and consulates abroad will apply for them free of charge.
