Effective today, Thursday, June 1, citizens of Barbados and the People’s Republic of China, can now enter each other’s territory freely with an ordinary passport and no entry visa.

The Visa Waiver Agreement, which was signed on March 24 this year, allows citizens holding ordinary passports of both countries to travel visa free for a period of 30 days.

Since the signing, both countries have completed the technical and administrative procedures necessary to implement the agreement, allowing citizens to now take full advantage.

Barbados is the third Caribbean island, and the tenth country worldwide, to sign a Visa Waiver Agreement with the People’s Republic of China.
