China Allows Visa Relaxation If You Opt for Chinese COVID-19 Vaccine

China is relaxing its border restrictions which will allow some travelers to enter the mainland, from countries including the US, India, and Pakistan, provided they have been administered a Chinese coronavirus vaccine.

According to the notices issued by Chinese embassies in several countries, travelers who have received Chinese COVID-19 jabs, and obtained vaccination certificates will be facilitated for visa applications, which have started from 15 March 2021.

In order to control the spread of COVID-19, China closed its border for most foreigners in March 2020, however, now the country has eased its visa restriction for a few countries.
