China promotes recovery of inbound travels. Convenient conditions to facilitate visiting CIFF Guangzhou 2024.

The air connections to and from China are continuously increasing and returning to normal. China’s aviation regulator is expecting the number of international flights to China to reach about 80% of pre-pandemic levels.

China exempts citizens of France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and Malaysia from needing entry visas. Until November 30th 2024, holders of ordinary passports from the above countries are allowed to enter China visa-free for business, tourism, visiting relatives and friends, and transit for no more than 15 days.

Under the “144-hour visa-free transit policy”, foreign travelers of 54 eligible countries and regions in Europe, America, Oceania and Asia, can apply for a 6-day entry permit to certain Chinese cities, including Guangzhou and the Guangdong province.

After landing at the Guangzhou Baiyun Airport, passengers who meet the policy conditions, hold a passport valid for no less than 3 months, a connecting ticket to a third country (which means they must transit to another country, including Hong Kong, before flying back home) with a fixed date and seat within 144 hours, a hotel reservation form, can fill out the “Arrival Card For Temporary Entry Foreigners,” and submit it to apply for 144-hour visa-free transit.

For foreign nationals who urgently need to engage in business cooperation and visit exchanges, and are unable to obtain a visa overseas in time, they can apply for a port visa to enter China by presenting invitation letters and other relevant supporting documents to the port visa authorities.

These are very convenient conditions to make even easier and faster the arrival in Guangzhou and the 53rd CIFF Guangzhou 2024 more accessible to buyers, designers and industry experts, fostering greater attendance and a more diverse range of perspectives at the event!
