In an effect to bolster the country’s economy Australian government has all set to proffer a three-year multiple entry visas for Chinese tourists. The new option grabs the attention of more number of Chinese travelers, said the concerned representatives.

In the previous year, Japan has granted 146,000 visas for all the Chinese travelers. Earlier all the prospective applicants of China were asked to hold a valid permit from the concerned officials to obtain a three-year multiple entry visas. But as per the new immigration laws, no guarantee are required to get a visa permit.

The new amendments were made by the Trade and Investment Minister, Andrew Robb at one of the awards ceremony of tourism. Mr. Robb further stated that visitors who arrive in the country through multiple-entry visa play a key role in enhancing the country’s tourism market. As per the new records of the country around 790,000 travelers from China arrived Australia in September after spending nearly 5.4 billion dollars, out of which half of them have arrived in the county through multiple entry visa. The count of Chinese travelers visiting to overseas nations is anticipated to increase to around 200 million by 2020.
