BEIJING (Agencies): China has announced the resumption of 15-day visa-free entry for citizens of Singapore and Brunei, starting on Wednesday. The decision comes more than three years of suspension due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Chinese embassies in Singapore and Brunei confirmed that citizens with ordinary passports traveling for business, sightseeing, visiting relatives and friends, and in transit will be eligible for visa-free entry to China. Notices regarding this development were published on the embassies’ official websites.
China had previously eased many of its COVID-19 containment measures in December, but the issuance of tourist visas only recommenced in March.
