China Reciprocates Visa Free Exemption To Malaysians From 15 To 30 Days

China has agreed to extend visa exemption for Malaysian tourists from 15 to 30 days, said Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

He announced the matter today, during the 50th anniversary celebration of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Malaysia and China.

“During my meeting with Premier Li Qiang yesterday, one of the subjects raised was extending our Malaysian inbound tourists to China (visa exemption) from 15 to 30 days. Malaysia has opened the floodgates by giving Chinese tourists 30 days visa-free.

“I would like to announce that both sides have agreed, and the implementation is after the agreement has been signed,” Zahid said.

Vice Premier Ding Xuexiang was also present at the ceremony, which was held at the Diaoyutai State Guesthouse.

Yesterday, Malaysia’s Ambassador to China Datuk Norman Muhamad said Zahid had proposed the matter during his courtesy visit to Chinese Premier Li Qiang and received a positive response from China.

China has extended the visa-free policy for short-term visits to the republic for Malaysia and 11 other nations until the end of 2025. The extension aims to enhance exchanges between Chinese and foreign nationals.

In November last year, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim announced a 30-day visa exemption for tourists from China and India starting December 1, 2023.
