NIS – The Serbian government decided on Sunday to propose to China a mutual scrapping of visas. At a government session held in Nis late Sunday, FM Ivica Dacic and Chinese Ambassador Li Manchang agreed it was a historic day for Serbia and China.

In case the Chinese government accepts Serbia’s proposal, visas will not be required for stays up to 30 days, and the decision could take effect by the end of the year, Dacic said after the session, while Li said he was confident about such an outcome.

Dacic said the decision had been unanimous.

“We expect a large number of Chinese tourists in Serbia and this is good news for our citizens, too.

This will enable Chinese businesspeople to come without visas, and cooperation in culture, science, education and sports will strengthen, too,” Dacic said.
