US chamber seeks feedback on China visa policy
 
Hong Kong (2008-04-23)

THE American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham) has asked its members in Hong Kong to provide details of their experience in obtaining China visas amid difficulties in confirming wide-ranging changes to the mainland's visa policy.

In a circular to members, AmCham said Beijing informed the US Consulate that no changes had been made to its existing policy although there had been extensive media reports to the contrary.

"To break through what appears to be confusion and perhaps a great wall of silence around a new visa policy, we need your anecdotes...our most important and reliable source of information is you," AmCham said in its circular, following complaints by members about widely reported changes such as a temporary ban on the issuance of multiple-entry visas until after the August Olympic Games.

Information about the changes have come mainly from travel agents. Last week, the Hong Kong Association of Travel Agents issued a circular to confirm one key change: nationals from 33 countries such as Malaysia, the Philippines, India and Indonesia can no longer apply for China visas in Hong Kong but have to do so in their home countries.
