In view of resuming people-to-people exchanges between China and other countries in an orderly manner, starting from 15 March 2021, the Chinese Embassy in Antigua and Barbuda will provide facilitation for visa applicants who have been inoculated with COVID-19 vaccines produced in China and obtained the vaccination certificate. Please be noted that applicants who have been inoculated with COVID-19 vaccines produced in China refers to those either having received two doses of Chinese-made vaccines with the stipulated gap in between, or having received a single-dose Chinese-made vaccine at least 14 days prior to the application, and obtained the vaccination certificate. Relevant facilitation measures are as follows:

 

1. Foreign nationals and their family members visiting China for resuming work and production in various fields need only to provide the documents required before the COVID-19 pandemic when applying for a visa.

 

2. The scope of applicants eligible for applying for a visa out of emergency humanitarian needs will be expanded as appropriate. Foreign family members of Chinese citizens or permanent residents of China, including spouse, parents, children and other close relatives living together (referring to siblings, grandparents and grandchildren), may submit visa applications for the purposes of reuniting with family, taking care of the elderly, visiting relatives, attending funerals or visiting critically ill relatives.

 

3. Holders of valid APEC business travel cards may apply for the M visa by presenting the original valid APEC business travel card and the invitation letter issued by the inviting party in China.

 

Previous requirements remain unchanged concerning the nucleic acid test and serum antibody test for passengers bound for China. After entering China, please abide by the relevant Chinese regulations on quarantine and health observation.
