Effective immediately the government of China is issuing TEN-YEAR MULTIPLE-ENTRY visas to qualified Canadian business and tourist visa seekers.
Canadians who qualify for a multi-entry visa will no longer be limited to the old one-year visa. The new plan is that the visa will be valid for the remaining life of the passport. This means that a person using a new ten-year passport could get a ten-year visa.
Please note that you still need either official permission for a multi-entry visa, or must prove that you have held a Chinese visa previously by supplying your previous Chinese visa and old passport.
