China offers visa conveniences to foreigners amid coronavirus

  



The National Immigration Administration has rolled out special measures to facilitate foreigners' stay in China as well as their arrivals and departures amid the battle against the COVID-19 outbreak.


With no need of a separate application, foreigners in China will have their stay or residence permits extended automatically for two months during the epidemic period, Liu Haitao, an official with the administration, said Sunday at a press conference in Beijing.



Immigration offices nationwide will issue urgent exit and entry permits within 24 fours for those coming to China for anti-COVID-19 missions, including medical assistance, drug development and academic exchanges, Liu said.


They could also apply for a special visa at Chinese ports of entry if their journey is made on too short a notice, he added.


Like Chinese citizens, foreign residents in China can file applications online and have documents delivered to their homes after the issuance, Liu said.
