Great news for travelers to and from China and the United States with the new 10 year visa agreement. Now visas for both countries are good for 10 years back and forth as many times per the allowed time in country. When I first heard the news I thought it was only for the Chinese but when I looked to get a new visa to China for me it displayed 10 years with multi entries. This is perfect for my in-laws from China because it is a major procedure for them to travel to the US consulate for the visa requirements. I read that the first week in China they processed 8000 visas in 1 week at the US consulate. It also shows that the power of the Chinese spending money for tourism which is the highest in the world, it only makes sense to make it easier and frequent. It works perfect for me and will save me $2500 with visa fees over a 10 year period.
Travel smart and safe.
