Here, we address some of the major questions that might be on travelers' minds right now as they start planning their 2023 journeys. China isn't rolling out the red carpet for international leisure tourists looking to experience the country's many attractions just yet. Borders remain largely closed to foreigners, apart from business or family visits, though the government has signaled it is looking to ease restrictions in this area, too. No timeline has been announced.
According to the government notices, for now it plans to focus on facilitating visa applications for foreign nationals traveling to China for business, employment, study, family visits and reunions.
