    China Visas - Still valid?

    Are visas for China issued pre-covid still valid until their original expiration date? I heard that during 2020 all issued visas were not only suspended but cancelled too. Is this true?

    Say I got a 10 year visa in 2018 with an expiry date of 2028, would it be valid?

    I have been wondering about this too. Apparently foreigners can apply for visas starting today. It's not clear if pre-covid visas are valid or not though.

    I'm not sure if this means we have to reapply for visas or what.

    Oh, I seem to have misunderstood. You can apply for visas, but tourist visas are not being issued.

    So it seems like you can't go to the mainland yet.

    So any updates? Are pre existing tourist visas still valid?
