South Korea relaxes visa rules for Chinese visitors

7 Jul 2010

South Korea’s ministry of justice has outlined plans to ease restrictions on independent Chinese travellers including business people.

Among the proposals are the granting of a one-year multiple entry visa for lawyers, doctors and other professionals, as well as Chinese citizens who have the right of permanent residence in the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development member states such as the US, UK, Australia and Japan among others.

South Korea is also planning to grant double-entry visas to Chinese visitors and to automatically renew visas for travellers who apply for a visa for the second time.

The scheme will be implemented from mid-July onward.
