Within this period, they do not have to go through procedures for the extension. They can still stay in or exit China legally. Meanwhile, for the foreign nationals who come to China on special epidemic control tasks and those engaged in medical aid, drug development and academic exchanges, the local immigration and public security authorities will provide emergency visa services 24 hours a day. Foreign nationals coming to China for epidemic control work and cooperation, or important business and scientific researches, can apply for visas upon arrival at the port of entry.
