As the global health situation worsens, China has suspended all visas held by foreign nationals, preventing them from entering the country until further notice.
The suspension will take effect at 12 AM on the 28th of March, according to a statement made on the Ministry of Foreign Affairs official website.
The suspension applies to all foreign nationals holding visa, residence permits, and APEC Business Travel Cards.
Foreign nationals coming to China for necessary economic, trade, scientific or technological activities, or out of emergency humanitarian needs will need to apply for a new visa at Chinese embassies or consulates.
The only visas that will not be affected by this announcement are diplomatic, service, courtesy, or C visas, as well as entry visas issued to foreign nationals after the announcement.
