Singapore and China to implement 30-day visa exemption

Singapore and China are progressing towards a mutual 30-day visa exemption, aiming to elevate travel beyond pre-Covid levels, with implementation expected in early 2024. The announcement came from the 19th Joint Council for Bilateral Cooperation in Tianjin, China. Deputy Prime Minister Lawrence Wong highlighted the plan as a means to exceed pre-pandemic flight connectivity and strengthen financial relations. The visa-free initiative aligns with efforts to deepen ties following the upgrade of Singapore-China relations to a comprehensive partnership earlier this year. Both nations are focusing on expanding cooperation in traditional and emerging sectors, including the green and digital economies. The council underlines a commitment to a mutually beneficial future, building on successful economic collaborations and Belt and Road initiatives.
