China to Lift South Korean Visa Freeze

What’s new: The Chinese embassy in Seoul said it will resume issuing short-term visas to South Korean nationals from Saturday, ending most of the remaining retaliatory measures Beijing took against Covid-related curbs on travelers from China.

Visas will be issued to South Koreans seeking to enter China for visits, business, transit and general private affairs, the embassy said in a Wednesday statement.

The move comes after South Korea lifted visa restrictions for Chinese nationals on Feb. 11 and said it would consider gradually easing other Covid restrictions enforced on inbound travelers from China.
