Australia is to trial a 10-year multiple entry tourist visas for Chinese citizens. The trial will also allow for tourist applications to be lodged in Mandarin.
This trial is to encourage further growth in tourist numbers from China with government figures showing a million Chinese tourists arriving in Australia in recent 12 months and contributing A$8.3 billion to our economy. China is the fastest growing group of holidaymakers in Australia and second to New Zealand in absolute numbers of tourist arrivals.
Australia has also launched a global tourism campaign targeting China with year 2017 designated as the Australia-China Year of Tourism. Governments of both countries will deliver programs to promote the tourism relationship between China and Australia.
