China and Israel agree on 10-year multiple-entry visas for citizens E-mail

Israel’s Interior Ministry has announced that the Chinese Israeli 10-year multiple-entry visa agreement will take effect this month on 11 November. The agreement was signed at the second meeting of the China-Israel Joint Committee on Innovation Cooperation on 29 March 2016. Chinese Vice Premier Liu Yandong and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu attended the signing ceremony.

The Chinese-Israeli 10-year multiple-entry visa agreement is another major move after Israel and China agreed on a mutual visa waiver for diplomatic and official passport-holders this January. According to the agreement, Chinese tourists will be able to have multiple entries to Israel, with the maximum duration of each stay being 90 days.

In recent years, ChineseIsraeli relations have been developing rapidly in various fields, including intergovernmental platforms such as the China-Israel Joint Committee on Innovation Cooperation, and co-operation in trade, bilateral investment, culture, academia and tourism. The visa agreement is expected to continue to strengthen co-operation between the two countries.

China’s tourism industry is the fastest-growing in the world. The number of Chinese tourists visiting Israel has been increasing by 30% annually. Israel welcomes Chinese tourists and hopes that this momentum will be long-lasting.
