Hungary and China set up new visa policy for travelers
Under a new program, business travelers will be able to get their visa within one working day. Tourist visa approval will take just two days.
The Hungarian government has announced a new visa policy that will help Hungarian and Chinese business people traveling between the two countries.
Under the new program, business travelers will be able to get their visa within one working day, according to CRJ English today.
Meanwhile, the step includes provisions for allowing tourists to have their visa applications processed within two days.
The new policy is part of a series of agreements between the two foreign ministries as part of a working group set up to coordinate policy through the "Belt and Road" initative.
Péter Szijjártó, minister of Foreign Affiars and Trade, says the "Belt and Road" program fits in well with Hungary's development policies.
"The Hungarian government initiated in 2010 a policy to develop and open up to the East. This policy combines really well with China's "One Belt One Road" initiative - these two policies are complementary," minister Szijjártó said.
Hungary has been tapped as a logistics hub in the "Belt and Road" initiatives for Chinese trade moving into western Europe.
