|Notice on Visa Facilitation for Applicants Inoculated with COVID-19 Vaccines Produced in China|
Because of resuming people-to-people exchanges between China and other countries in an orderly manner, starting from 15 March 2021, the Chinese Embassy in Lebanon will provide the following facilitation for visa applicants who have been inoculated with COVID-19 vaccines produced in China and obtained the vaccination certificate:
1. Foreign nationals and their family members visiting China for resuming work and production in various fields need only to provide the documents required before the COVID-19 pandemic when applying for a visa. The Invitation Letter (PU), Invitation Letter (TE), or Invitation Verification Notice issued by the foreign affairs offices or the departments of commerce of the provincial (including autonomous regions and municipalities) governments or the headquarters of central state-owned enterprises are no longer required.
2. The scope of applicants eligible for applying for a visa out of emergency humanitarian needs will be expanded as appropriate. Foreign family members of Chinese citizens or permanent residents of China, including spouse, parents, children, and other close relatives living together (referring to siblings, grandparents, and grandchildren), may submit visa applications for the purposes of reuniting with family, taking care of the elderly, visiting relatives, attending funerals or visiting critically ill relatives.
3. Holders of valid APEC business travel cards may apply for the M visa by presenting the original valid APEC business travel card and the invitation letter issued by the inviting party in China.
1. The above-mentioned visa facilitation applies only provided to applicants who have been inoculated with Chinese-made vaccines (either having received two doses of vaccines with the stipulated gap in between, or having received a single-dose vaccine at least 14 days before the application) and obtained the vaccination certificate.
3. Applicants who provide forged vaccination certificates or visa application documents will bear corresponding legal liabilities.
