China to Allow Visa-Free Transit Trips

China to Allow Visa-Free Transit Trips(Beijing) – China will allow transit passengers from 45 countries to spend up to 72 hours in Beijing without a visa from next month. The move is intended to “strongly spur the development of the tourism industry, speed up building of an international city and expand contacts with the rest of the world,” the Beijing Tourism Administration has said in its statement.
The policy only applies to travelers in transit to a third country, and not for return flights to the capital. Eligible nationalities include the United States, Canada, European Union countries, Brazil, Argentina, Australia, South Korea, Japan and the United Arab Emirates.
