COVID-19: China to issue visas to foreigners who have taken Chinese jab

China say is ready to ease border restrictions to allow some foreigners including the US, India and Pakistan in the country, provided they have taken a Chinese-made Covid-19 vaccine. 

The country have stop so many foreigners since last March to stem the spread of coronavirus which it has largely brought under control at home, stranding many foreigners with jobs and family inside China overseas. 

But Chinese embassies in several countries have issued notices saying the country will open visa applications to select people who have taken a China-made jab. 

The Chinese Embassy in the US said in a statement dated Monday that it would begin to process "visa applicants inoculated with Chinese Covid-19 vaccines". 

This would apply from this week to those visiting the Chinese mainland for work resumption, business travel, or for "humanitarian needs", such as reuniting with family members. 

Beijing is driving forward its inoculation plan for its vast domestic population with four domestically produced vaccines approved so far. But it has yet to approve any foreign-made jabs. 

China has also shipped its vaccines overseas as it works to blunt foreign criticism of the initial spread of the virus from its shores.
