The Chinese government recently suspended the issuance of new short-term visas to nationals of Japan and South Korea.
BAL Analysis: Chinese authorities suspended the issuance of short-term visas as a reciprocal response to Japan’s and South Korea’s recent decision to implement COVID-19 entry requirements for travelers from China. Japanese and South Korean nationals should expect delays when planning travel to China.
Many countries around the world have implemented similar COVID-19 entry requirements for travelers from China. It is currently unclear if Chinese authorities will impose reciprocal measures on other countries. The response to the COVID-19 pandemic continues to develop, and BAL will provide additional updates as information becomes available.
