From 2016, new visitor visas for tourists from China will be valid in the UK for 2 years, bringing significant benefits to the UK economy.

The main changes:

  • Extension of standard visitor visas from 6 months to 2 years multiple entry and plans to introduce a new 10 year multiple entry visit visa for the same price
  • Mobile fingerprinting service to be extended to an additional 50 cities to make it easier to apply for a visa
  • Part of government’s ambition to strengthen UK-China relations for the benefit of the whole of Britain

The changes come into effect from January 2016.
