(Yicai Global) April 30 -- China's southern province of Guangdong will allow foreign travelers to visit the region for up to 144 hours without a visa from tomorrow.
Visitors from 53 countries who enter China via three of the province's main airports and leave through one of its 31 ports will be eligible to travel under the new policy, the provincial public security department said today.
The new rule doubles the length of time for visa-free travel in the province and opens up a much broader range of entry and exit points for foreign tourists. The old 72-hour visa-free policy forced travelers to enter and exit through Baiyun International Airport in the provincial capital Guangzhou.
