In about October-November, Belarusian bearers of ordinary passports will have an opportunity to visit China. The precise date is unknown as yet. First, the document has to be ratified by parliamentarians, then diplomatic notes have to be exchanged. After 30 days, the agreement will come into effect. The intergovernmental agreement on visa-free travels was signed in Tsingtao after the talks between the President of Belarus and the Chairman of the People's Republic of China. The document will open new opportunities for Belarus-China cooperation not only in tourism, but also in trade culture, education and other spheres.
