U.S. to Extend B Visas for Chinese Nationals

As of the 15th of this month, the U.S. will enable eligible Chinese nationals wishing to come to this country temporarily for business or tourism (on the B visa) to receive visas that are valid for 12 months and multiple entries. In reciprocity, the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs has stated that they will allow U.S. visitors to China (business and tourism) visas that are equally valid.

In 2004 the U.S. issued nearly 230,000 nonimmigrants visas to Chinese nationals. Of these, almost 80 percent were B visas.
