On 23 September 2020, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the National Immigration Administration jointly announced that beginning at 0:00 hours on 28 September, foreign nationals holding valid Chinese residence permits for work, private affairs and family reunification, will be allowed to enter China, without having to re-apply for a new visa. If the three types of residence permits held by foreign nationals expired after 0:00 hours on 28 March 2020, the holders may present the expired residence permit and relevant materials to Chinese Embassies and Consulates abroad, when applying for a corresponding visa to enter China, provided that the holder’s purpose for visiting China remains unchanged. Any personnel permitted to enter China, shall strictly abide by the regulations on pandemic prevention in China. The Chinese government will restore the personnel exchange by Chinese and foreign nationals in a gradual and orderly manner, on the premise of ensuring pandemic prevention and safety.
