China and South Korea End Travel Restrictions

From February 18, China will resume issuing short-term visas for South Korean nationals. The return to visa processing follows South Korea’s announcement to end the COVID-19-related travel restrictions for Chinese nationals.

When visa processing resumes, the Chinese embassy in Seoul and other consulates will again issue short-term visas for South Korean nationals to visit China for business, transit, and other private affairs.
