Spanish visa center opens in Changsha

Updated: 2017-06-05

 
Spain has become the latest country to establish a visa center in Changsha, becoming the 16th to do so in the past year.

 

Following countries such as France, Germany, Italy, the UK, Switzerland and Greece, the Spanish visa center will make it easier for Changsha residents to travel to, invest, or carry out business with the western European nations.

 

"The convenient visa system brings more international opportunities for Changsha, in the fields of commerce, education, and tourism," said Liu Siwei, a counselor of the Hunan People's Government.

 

"Changsha is becoming stronger and more competitve on the international stage."

 

Wei Xin, a professor at the Tourism Academy of the Central South University of Forestry and Technology, said convenient access to visa services will boost overseas tourism.

 

Since Germany established a visa center in Changsha less than a year ago, the country has received a 30 percent bump in tourists from the city as well as establishing a direct flight to Frankfurt.

 

As a city of rising international influence, Changsha has seen several major foreign events in 2017. In January, delegates from the Australia International Trade Association visited the city to address commercial cooperation; in March, Saint Petersburg set up an information center in Changsha, boosting bilateral communication in culture and trade; in April, the second China-US Business Summit was held in Changsha.
