France is the most popular long-haul destination for Chinese travelers and wants to increase those numbers even further. In 2014, France cut the time to process a visa from around ten days to just 48 hours. And now, France announced it will cut the visa delivery processes to one day for Chinese tourist groups.
France also wants to increase student visas for Chinese tourists from the current 20,000 to 50,000 visas.
