As of 11 January 2016, a new two-year visit visa for Chinese nationals will be launched which will allow successful applicants to enter the United Kingdom multiple times. Same as the existing visitor visa, this will cost £85. This new pilot hopes to offer Chinese nationals better value for their money, flexible travel and more opportunities with regards to tourism and business, as the number of Chinese visitors to the United Kingdom is increasing. Chinese visitors will also be able to stay in the UK for a longer period than the 90 days that is currently allowed under the Schengen visitor visa.
