CCTV9英语新闻:China's Kunming to offer visa-free transit stays

Southwest China’s city of Kunming, in Yunnan province, will provide three-day, visa-free programs for foreign travellers.

The program will be available for air travellers making a stopover at the Kunming Changshui International Airport. Analysts say the program will largely boost the tourism industry of the city, which is currently on very few long-range international routes. 

In 2013, Beijing and Shanghai became the first cities in China to provide the 72-hours scheme. Kunming will be the tenth city to join the list.
