China says it will resume issuance of short-term visas for S. Koreans this week
Baku, February 15, AZERTAC
China will restart issuance of short-term visas for South Koreans later this week, its embassy in Seoul said Wednesday, in response to South Korea's resumption of short-term visas for travelers from China, according to Yonhap News Agency.
The embassy announced through social media that the measure will become effective Saturday.
Last week, South Korea resumed issuing short-term visas for Chinese visitors following the peaking of China's COVID-19 infection wave and virus situations entering a phase of stabilization.
In early January, South Korea tightened curbs on travelers from China amid a surge in coronavirus infections in the neighboring nation.
China suspended short-term visa issuance for South Koreans in apparent retaliation for what it called "discriminatory" entry restrictions.
