BEIJING -- The Chinese Embassy in Japan will begin accepting visa applications from holders of valid residence permits, it announced Saturday, paving the way for business professionals to return to the country.

The step will allow the reentry of Japanese expatriates who have temporarily returned to Japan but been unable to come back to China because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
