What is the change? Israel and China have reached an agreement to provide 10-year, multiple-entry visas to business travelers and tourists from each other’s countries.
What does the change mean? The arrangement, once implemented, is expected to significantly improve visa procedures for Israeli and Chinese nationals traveling to each other’s countries.
Background: The Israeli-Chinese visa agreement follows similar agreements between Canada and China and the U.S. and China. While the change will reduce red tape for business travelers, work activities will not be permitted when traveling on one of the new 10-year visas.
BAL Analysis: The change will facilitate business travel and reduce the inconvenience of having to apply for a visa more frequently. BAL will continue monitoring developments and will update clients when an implementation date is announced or visa issuance begins.
