UK, Canada, Usa, Australia all do not require a visa to enter into each others country as a tourist as long as you hold one of their passports.

This development is needed on the Chinese Paasport in regards to their neigbours. Double the price of the passport and increase the privilages.Change is needed so the Chinese passport is able to visit many countries without a tourist Visa.

This is a matter of bilateral agreements between China and  other nations. Right now China demands tourist visa from all foreigners except citizens of Brunei, Japan and Singapore and Chinese citizens (except HK) need visa for all nations that they intend to visit. This will probably only change if countries, that are visited by Chinese tourists, can be sure that all visitors return to their home country.

How would that work?

First step: Let the mainlanders to freely enter Hong Kong-----> 2 days later Hong Kong sinks
Second Step: Let the Chinese to freely enter Taiwan  ----------> a week later Taiwan sinks
Third Step: Let the Chinese to freely enter Japan -------------> a month later China invades it
Fourth Step: Let the Chinese freely move around countries ----------------> a year later China empties ( and the US sinks)

About mainlanders visiting Hong-Kong

From the HK gonverment website: http://www.tourism.gov.hk/english/visitors/visitors_ind.html

The endorsement is valid for three months or one year and good for one or two visits to Hong Kong. The endorsement holder can stay in Hong Kong for not more than seven days on each visit. Eligible applicants may apply for a new endorsement once the current one has expired or has been used up. There is no quota on the number of endorsements to be issued.

First of all, some HKG regulations for mainlanders. I believe that this is important in order to understand why one forumite is dramatizing the situation while the other is denying it.

Here are the rules applicable for Mainland Chinese when visiting HKG:


Private Visits

Visit relatives

6. Mainland residents who wish to visit their relatives in Hong Kong are required to obtain an Exit-entry Permit for Travelling to and from Hong Kong and Macao with an "endorsement for visiting relatives (Tanqing)"  from the relevant Public Security Bureau Office.

Group tours

7. Mainland residents who wish to come here for sightseeing may join the group tours organized by designated Mainland tour companies. Group tour members need to obtain an Exit-entry Permit for Travelling to and from Hong Kong and Macao and an "endorsement for group visit (Tuandui Luyou)" issued by the Public Security Bureau Office. As group tour visitors, they must arrive and depart together as a group.

Individual visits

8. Mainland residents from Guangdong Province and 28 cities, including Shanghai, Beijing, Nanjing, Suzhou, Wuxi, Hangzhou, Ningbo, Taizhou, Fuzhou, Xiamen, Quanzhou, Tianjin, Chongqing, Chengdu, Jinan, Shenyang, Dalian, Nanchang, Changsha, Nanning, Haikou, Guiyang, Kunming, Shijiazhuang, Zhengzhou, Changchun, Hefei and Wuhan who wish to come here for sightseeing purpose in individual capacity are required to obtain an Exit-entry Permit for travelling to and from Hong Kong and Macao and an "endorsement for individual visit (Geren Luyou)" from the relevant Public Security Bureau Office.

Business visits

9. Mainland residents who wish to make business trips to Hong Kong in their private capacity are required to obtain an Exit-entry Permit for Travelling to and from Hong Kong and Macao and an "endorsement for business visit (Shangwu)"  from the relevant Public Security Bureau Office. (Click here for "Notice to Mainland Residents holding Business Visit Endorsement")

Other purposes of visit

10. Mainland residents who wish to enter Hong Kong as a visitor for other purposes such as treating an illness, attending a funeral or participating in proceedings etc are required to obtain an Exit-entry Permit for Travelling to and from Hong Kong and Macao and an "endorsement for other purposes (Qita)" from the relevant Public Security Bureau Office.

Side Trips

11. Under current arrangements, Mainland residents who wish to visit Hong Kong are required to obtain an "Exit-Entry Permit for Travelling to and from Hong Kong and Macao" (EEP) and an appropriate exit endorsement from the relevant Public Security Bureau Office. In general, a Mainland resident who is in possession of a valid EEP bearing a valid exit endorsement may be landed in Hong Kong as a visitor, with a limit of stay in accordance with the exit endorsement, provided that normal immigration requirements are met. The number of journeys to Hong Kong will be stated in the exit endorsement, i.e. single-journey, double-journey or multiple-journey.

12. To facilitate those EEP holders who may take side trips to neighbouring places (e.g. Macao* or the high seas) and return to the Mainland via Hong Kong, the Immigration Department has implemented the following procedures:
if an EEP holder enters Hong Kong again after a side trip before the expiry of the limit of stay previously imposed, he/she will be given permission to land with the same limit of stay as that given in the previous trip, provided that normal immigration requirements are met (e.g. if the limit of stay previously imposed is until 8 May and the EEP holder enters Hong Kong again on 4 May, he / she may be landed until 8 May); or
if an EEP holder enters Hong Kong again after a side trip on the last day of the limit of stay previously imposed, he/she will be given permission to land for one more day to facilitate his/her return trip to the Mainland, provided that normal immigration requirements are met (taking the above example, if the EEP holder enters Hong Kong again on 8 May, he/she may be landed until 9 May).

13. There is no limit on the number of side trips that an EEP holder can make. A journey to Hong Kong specified on the exit endorsement will be treated as completed when the EEP holder returns to the Mainland.
* With effect from 1-9-2008, Mainland residents travelling on 'Exit-Entry Permit for Travelling to Hong Kong and Macao' without an exit endorsement for Macao will not be permitted to enter Macao from Hong Kong by the Macao Authorities.
