1月11日,国务院新闻办公室举行新闻发布会,邀请国家移民管理局副局长刘海涛、国家移民管理局外国人管理司司长毛旭、国家移民管理局边防检查管理司司长池景阳介绍便利外籍人员来华5项措施有关情况,并答记者问。详情如下:

 

Q
 
便利外籍人员来华的5项具体措施

一、放宽来华外籍人员申办口岸签证条件。对急需来华从事商贸合作、访问交流、投资创业、探望亲属以及处理私人事务等非外交、公务活动的外籍人员,来不及在境外办妥签证的,可凭邀请函件等相关证明材料向口岸签证机关申办口岸签证后入境。

 

二、外籍人员在北京首都机场等枢纽空港口岸24小时直接过境免办查验手续。在北京首都机场、北京大兴机场、上海浦东机场、杭州萧山机场、厦门高崎机场、广州白云机场、深圳宝安机场、成都天府机场、西安咸阳机场,上述9个国际机场,推行24小时直接过境旅客免办边检手续。对于持24小时内国际联程机票,经上述任一机场过境前往第三国或地区的出入境旅客,可免办边检手续,直接免签过境。

 

三、在华外籍人员可就近办理签证延期换发补发。短期来华从事商贸合作、访问交流、投资创业、探望亲属、观光旅游以及处理私人事务等非外交、公务活动的外籍人员,有正当合理事由需继续在华停留的,可就近就便向停留地公安机关出入境管理机构申请签证延期换发补发。

 

四、在华外籍人员需多次出入境可申办再入境签证。在华外籍人员因正当合理事由需多次出入境的,可凭邀请函件等相关证明材料,向公安机关出入境管理机构申请换发多次入境有效签证。

 

五、简化在华外籍人员签证证件申办材料。外籍人员申办签证证件时,对于通过信息共享可查询到本人住宿登记记录、企业营业执照等信息的,可免予查验相关纸质证明材料;在华外籍人员办理亲属短期探亲团聚类签证的,可以邀请人亲属关系声明代替亲属关系证明。

 

 

 

Q
 
此次放宽外籍人员申办口岸签证条件的主要考虑因素?

2023年8月,国家移民管理局推出了为急需来华外籍商贸人员提供口岸签证便利措施以来,全国口岸签证机关签发商贸签证量同比增长166%,受到广大外籍人员、外资企业的好评和欢迎。

 

这次推出的放宽外籍人员申办口岸签证条件,主要是将口岸签证条件进一步扩展到急需来华访问交流、投资创业、探望亲属及处理私人事务等非外交、公务活动的外籍人员,基本上覆盖到了绝大多数有紧急来华需求的外籍人员,更充分地发挥口岸签证的功能优势,为外籍人员来华提供更加便捷灵活的途径。

 

 

Q
 
允许在华外籍人员就近办理签证的延期、换发和补发的便利措施中,具体包含了哪些内容?办证期限是否会因此延长?

目前外籍人员持签证入境后,按照签证注明的停留期限在中国境内停留,有正当合理事由需要延长签证停留期限,或者因普通签证损毁遗失,以及具有符合国家规定事由的,应提前向邀请单位、邀请人所在地或者事由发生地公安机关出入境管理机构申请办理签证延期换发和补发。据统计,每年在境内办理普通签证延期换发补发的外籍人员近5万人次。

 

2022年,国家移民管理局对在华从事投资、创业、科研、经贸的外籍人员试点实施了就近就便受理审批签证延期申请的便利举措,受到了外籍商务人士、企事业单位的欢迎,取得了较好成效。

 

为了更好服务外籍人员在中国境内高效便捷跨区域流动,方便其科学合理安排活动行程,在前期试点成效基础上,国家移民管理局将“异地办证”适用范围进一步扩展到所有短期来华的非外交、公务活动人员,便利外籍人员领略壮美山河、感受灿烂文明、体验中国改革开放的成效。

 

公安机关出入境管理机构仍将在法定7个工作日内作出审批签发的决定,办证时间不会因为异地办理而延长。

 

 

Q
 
外籍人员在枢纽空港口岸24小时直接过境免办查验手续,请问需要符合什么样的条件?如需离开机场的话,该如何办理?

出入境旅客在北京等9个空港口岸24小时直接过境免办查验手续,需要满足两个条件:一是应当持有本人有效国际旅行证件;二是持24小时内订妥座位、过境前往第三国或地区的联程机票,且不离开口岸限定区域。符合这两个条件的国际中转旅客,只需到国际直接过境区域,办理相关值机手续,即可在出境候机大厅等候登机。

 

确需离开口岸限定区域的,应当向边检机关申请办理过境临时入境许可,需要提供以下两种材料:一是本人有效国际旅行证件;二是24小时内订妥座位过境前往第三国或地区的联程机票,同时填写临时入境外国人入出境卡。在此特别提示,如果所持国际旅行证件有效期不足3个月,或者有我签证机关拒签章戳记的,以及5年内在华有非法出入境、非法居留、非法就业记录等违法情形的,边检机关将不予签发临时入境许可。

 

 

Q
 
在华外籍人员申办再入境签证措施的具体内容及适用条件有哪些?

在华外籍人员因正当合理事由需多次往返的,可在签证失效前,凭邀请函件等相关证明材料,在境内向公安机关出入境管理机构申办多次入境签证,以稳定外籍人员来华交流交往的发展预期。

English is as follows:

 

The National Immigration Administration announced on Thursday five optimized visa measures to facilitate the entry of foreign nationals into China for business, education and tourism purposes, including one that said foreigners who need to visit China urgently can apply for a port visa on arrival.

 

The new measures, effective immediately, say foreigners who need to come to China urgently for nondiplomatic or nonofficial purposes, such as business cooperation, investment, exchanges and family reunions, can apply for a port visa on arrival with supporting documents like an invitation letter. The rule also applies to those who are unable to obtain a visa overseas in time.

Foreigners will enjoy 24-hour visa-free transit through nine major airports in China, including the two in Beijing, Shanghai Pudong International Airport, Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport and Shenzhen Bao'an International Airport.

At a news conference held by the State Council Information Office, Chi Jingyang, director of the NIA's border inspection and administration department, said that transit passengers at these nine international airports can bypass border inspection procedures if their connecting flight to any third country or region is scheduled within 24 hours.

However, if such passengers plan to leave the designated port area during transit, they will have to apply for a temporary entry permit, Chi said.

Foreigners planning short-term stays in China for nondiplomatic or nonofficial purposes can apply for visa extensions, reissuing of visa or its replacement at any entry and exit authority nearby, provided they have valid reasons to continue staying in China.

Multiple-entry visas are available for foreigners in need, and they can apply to any entry and exit authority by providing relevant proof, such as an invitation letter, according to the NIA.

Furthermore, the documentation required for foreign visa applicants in China has been simplified. For instance, there is no need to provide printed paper proof if applicants have verifiable records of their accommodations and business licenses.

Liu Haitao, deputy head of the NIA, said these new measures aim to promote smooth cross-border mobility for people from various countries, fostering a more liberalized and convenient environment for international investment and trade, in order to better facilitate global economic recovery.

NIA officials revealed that China welcomed 210 million inbound visits in 2023, about 62.9 percent of the number recorded in 2019 before the COVID-19 pandemic.

Chi, from the border inspection and administration department, said he anticipated a continued growth in the number of inbound travelers in 2024, which will coincide with further global economic and trade development, the resumption of international flights and the gradual increase in cross-border personnel movement.

"The NIA is fully committed to serving and facilitating exchanges and interactions between Chinese and foreign individuals," he added.
