China will resume visa-free entry for tourists travelling from Hong Kong to Hainan Island, Guangdong, and to Shanghai on cruise ships, starting March 15. China will also begin issuing tourist visas to foreigners.

Multi-year multi-entry visas issued before March 28, 2020 by the Chinese visa authorities will be valid. In addition, tour groups from ASEAN countries do not need visas to enter Guili in Guangxi, from March 15.

In February this year, China eased entry requirements for cross-border visitors from Hong Kong by dropping its pre-departure PCR testing requirements for travellers and ending its daily quota system. Macau also scrapped pre-departure Covid-19 testing requirements for visitors from Hong Kong in January.

Last month, Lo Wu MTR Station on the East Rail Line reopened for cross-border travel into Mainland China, with two trains that travellers can take to the border control point at Lo Wu.
