2024.03.14

In order to further facilitate people-to-people exchanges between China and foreign countries, the Chinese government has recently decided to expand the scope of visa-free entry. Presently, China offers visa-free access to the following countries:

 

In Asia: Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Maldives, Kazakhstan, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Armenia;

In Europe: France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland, Ireland, Hungary, Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg, Albania, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, and San Marino;

In the Americas: Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Bahamas, Dominica, Ecuador, Grenada, Suriname;

In Oceania: Fiji and Tonga;

In Africa: Mauritius and Seychelles.

 

With the expansion of China's visa-free policy, it will significantly enhance convenience for international individuals to engage in business, exhibitions, travel, and other activities in China. Additionally, it will facilitate easier access for foreigners to participate in exhibitions and engage in trade activities within China. As China's economy continues to advance steadily, with its domestic market rapidly expanding and serving as a crucial engine for global development, the immense development potential it presents exerts a strong allure on the international stage.

 

SIAL, the comprehensive international trade platform for the food and beverage industry, is committed to promoting Chinese food and beverage enterprises on the global stage and assisting international food and beverage enterprises in entering the Chinese market. With 24 years of cultivation in China, SIAL has established itself as the premier professional exhibition in the industry, serving over 40,000 exhibitors and attracting more than 1,000,000 industry professionals from over 100 countries and regions worldwide.

 

Leveraging the benefits of China's visa-free policy, SIAL 2024 will further harness its international advantages to facilitate robust connections between domestic and international food companies and between supply and demand markets. Spanning 200,000 square meters, SIAL Shanghai 2024 is anticipated to draw over 5,000 exhibitors from 70 countries and regions, showcasing over 350,000 exhibits. Moreover, it is expected to host over 180,000 professionals from 110 countries and regions. Meanwhile, SIAL Shenzhen 2024 will continue to focus on the Greater Bay Area, extending its influence into South China and linking with Southeast Asia under the "Belt and Road" initiative. It will strive to synchronize the development of the international food and beverage industry to foster greater international trade cooperation and exchange.
