• China keeps an impossible condition for visas to the country
• Says it will allow only those to come to China who gets the Chinese Covid-19 vaccine
China is playing at getting its own way out again. While China has been off-limits for foreigners until now post the coronavirus global outbreak, the country says it is ready to issue visas now.
However, there is a condition. Whoever wants to enter China must be vaccinated using the Chinese covid-19 vaccine. This is a condition that shall be difficult to fulfil.
One, many countries have already begun the inoculation drive. Millions of people have already been vaccinated. Hence, getting vaccinated a second time is out of the question.
China has not yet mentioned anything about letting foreign students in. India has a huge number of students who were studying in China before the pandemic. While announcing its plan for issuing visas, the Chinese government only mentioned the people interested in visiting China for business, work or to see their relatives.
