KUALA LUMPUR: Visa-free travel to China for Malaysian citizens has been extended until the end of 2025, says Ouyang Yujing.

The Chinese ambassador to Malaysia announced in his speech during the launch of the Malaysia-China Commemorative Forum on Tuesday (May 7).

“Just yesterday (Monday), Chinese President Xi Jinping announced in France that the visa-free policy for citizens from 12 countries, including Malaysia, to come to China will be extended until the end of 2025.

“This will further promote the exchange and cooperation in our two countries,” he said.

On Monday (May 6), Xi said in France that China has decided to extend visa exemption entry for citizens from 12 countries on short-term visits to China until the end of 2025.

He made the announcement during the closing ceremony of the Sixth Meeting of China-France Business Council.

The 15-day visa-free policy would allow Malaysian citizens holding ordinary passports to enter China for business, tourism, family visits and transit purposes.

China first announced on Nov 24 last year an earlier visa-free travel for six European countries and Malaysia until Nov 30, 2024.
