On Monday, several Chinese embassies issued a notice highlighting that how foreigners can go about applying for visas to enter China. The Chinese Embassy in the US said, “it will begin to process Visa applicants inoculated with Chinese Covid-19 vaccines”.

Each of the embassy’s notices differs in wording. Those who have taken the Chinese vaccines can only apply for a visa. A notice from the Chinese Embassy in New Delhi said, “To resume people-to-people exchanges in an orderly manner, starting from March 15, 2021, the Chinese Embassies and Consulates in India will provide the persons having taken Chinese-made Covid-19 vaccine and holding the Certificates of Vaccination with the following facilitating measures, including for those going to China for reuniting with the family members or for any work purpose”.

TPT Policy Advocacy & Recommendations

  • India has banned many Chinese apps in the last year which has caused much trouble for the Indian students who were studying in China. Due to covid-19, they cannot go back to China. And now, they cannot carry out the online classes well. Even they are unable to receive the laboratory training.
  • Chinese vaccines have not yet been started in India. So, it is a huge problem for those who are stuck in India and cannot return to China for their work purpose.
