Foreign nationals holding valid Chinese residence permits for work, personal matters and reunion are allowed to enter China from Sept. 28 with no need to apply for new visas, according to a statement released by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the National Immigration Administration yesterday.

If the above three categories of residence permits held by foreign nationals expired after March 28, 2020, the holder may apply for the relevant visa by presenting the expired residence permit and relevant materials to the Chinese embassies or consulates on the condition that the purpose of the holder's visit to China remains unchanged.

The adjustments were made given the current COVID-19 situation and the need for epidemic prevention and control, according to the statement.
