China will adopt a one-visit-only policy to streamline travel document applications nationally starting May 1, said Qu Yunhai, deputy director of the State Immigration Administration under the Ministry of Public Security.
Applicants for passports, and permits for traveling to and from Hong Kong, Macao, and Taiwan, can complete their applications with one visit to the exit-entry administration office.
Qu said individual applications for travel documents have tripled from 2008 to 2017.
The State Immigration Administration will simplify procedures to allow applicants to submit photos, fingerprints, application materials, as well as conduct face-to-face interviews and payments all at the same place and time.
