China has extended its visa-free period for travellers passing through the Beijing region to 144 hours.

Six points of arrival in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei Region, including the Beijing Capital International Airport, Tianjin Binhai International Airport and Shijiazhuang International Airport, will permit travellers from 53 countries, including Canada, to enjoy visa-free transit treatment for a period of 144 hours when they have a valid connecting flight ticket for a third country or region.

Previously, the government offered a 72 visa-free period to travellers transiting through Beijing.

Following the announcement, Air China stated that it will launch special tourism products in partnership with Beijing-based travel businesses, geared toward showcasing the region to travellers taking advantage of the extended visa-free period.
