亚博体育下载开户软件夜网品茶微信changes in existing policy, the Ministry of Public Security’s State Immigration Administration said on Wednesday.

Foreign visitors from 59 countries will no longer have to book their trips in advance through travel agenc

ies, and will instead be able to apply for visa-free entry on their own or through organizations that in亚博体育下载开户软件夜网

vite them to Hainan, according to draft changes to the policy released by the administration.

Visit purposes eligible for visa-free entry will be extended from travel to include bu亚博体育下载开户软件夜网品茶微信

Jia Tongbin, the administration’s deputy director in charge of foreign vi亚博体育下载开户软件夜网

tually be permitted in order to meet Hainan’s needs for foreign expertise and to boost the local tourism sector. The list o亚博体育下载开户软件夜网品茶微信

Qu Yunhai, deputy director of the administration, said the policy changes will support development亚博体育下载开户软件夜网

Three pilot policies will be launched in August to make driving in Hainan more convenient for foreign visitors.

亚博体育下载开户软件夜网品茶微信The first will enable visitors staying for short periods to apply for temporary driving permits without having to undergo health checks.

The draft changes are in addition to Hainan’s existing visa-free entr

ourists from 59 countries for stays of up to 30 days, on condition that they register with travel agencies.

“As the construction of the Hainan Free Trade Zone and free trade port

are accelerating and Hainan is becoming more internationalized, there will be an inc

reasing number of international tourists, entrepreneurs and scholars coming to Hainan for travel and in

vestment in the future,” Jia said, adding that Hainan received 447,000 foreign visitors from the 59 countries fr

om May 1, 2018, to June 30 this year, an increase of 18.8 percent compared to the year-earlier period.

Fang Yan, a lawyer from Shaanxi province, said that it’s good to see the nation adding to the protectio

Another report released by the center in March said that 15.6 percent of juven
