3-day visa-free stay for Kazakhstanis in Chinese Tacheng
Beijing-Urumqi-Tacheng. December 25. KAZINFORM - Starting this year, tourists from 45 countries need no visa for a stay of 3 days (72 hours) in China's largest cities, including Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou. Kazakhstanis haven't been entered on the list so far.
This advantage has been granted to those countries, whose citizens were most frequent visitors of China between 2008 and 2012.
However, last July, the Chinese town of Tacheng, the administrative seat of Tacheng Prefecture, in northern Ili Kazakh Autonomous Prefecture, Xinjiang, availed Kazakh nationals of visiting Tacheng visa-free for 72 hours.
