The opening of several new offices in China where citizens can apply for visas to visit Canada could be a boon for travel operators in this country, if Chinese tourism surges as a result.

Among the deals signed by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau during his state visit to China was an agreement to allow Canada to open seven new visa application centres, in addition to the five already there. Until now, the Chinese government has permitted visa offices only in cities where Canada has an embassy or a consulate. The new offices are expected to open in 2017.
