BEIJING: The Chinese Embassy in Tokyo said Saturday that applications for visas for re-entry to China by Japanese business people who are currently back in their home country will be received from Sept. 1.

Those who have valid residential permits issued by Chinese authorities can apply for the re-entry visa, the embassy said.

Following the spread of the novel coronavirus, the Chinese government in late March banned entry to the country even by foreigners with valid residential permits. As a result, Japanese business people deployed in China who are continuing to stay in Japan after their return home during the Chinese Lunar New Year holidays in January became unable to travel back to China.

Re-entry visa applications will be received at relevant centers in Tokyo and the cities of Nagoya and Osaka, and at the Chinese Consulates-General in the cities of Sapporo, Niigata, Fukuoka and Nagasaki, after reservations for visits are made on the internet or through other means.

The planned issuance of re-entry visas is intended to further support travel between the two countries, an official at the embassy said.
