UK vows simpler visa rules for Chinese visitors, report says

Britain’s Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne said his country will simplify the visa application process for Chinese visitors, Bloomberg News reported Monday. Under a pilot program, Britain will allow some Chinese travel agents to apply for a visa by submitting the same form they will use for a visit to the European Union’s passport-free Schengen Zone, the report said. Other visa measures include creating a “super priority” service that will start in the middle of next year, while a “VIP mobile visa” service now operating in Beijing and Shanghai, which reduces the collection process to about five minutes, will be expanded to other parts of China, it said.
