On the evening of August 8, the Coalition Party promised to simplify the procedures for Chinese tourists to obtain visas to Australia after winning the election. This move is expected to increase the number of Chinese tourists and greatly excited the Australian tourism industry.

Despite the recent high exchange rate of the Australian dollar, the number of Chinese tourists visiting Australia on short-term visas has continued to increase in the past few years. The strong growth in the number of Chinese tourists has provided much-needed support to the 51.4 employees employed by the Australian tourism industry and the related catering, retail, transportation and accommodation industries.

In the evening, the spokesperson for tourism affairs of the opposition party, Bob Baldwin, said at a dinner hosted by the China National Tourism Administration that if the Alliance Party is elected in the September 9 election, it will be given in the negotiation of the bilateral free trade agreement. Simplify the visa application procedures for Chinese tourists to Australia.

Baldwin told the Australian Financial Review: "I have been asking the industry a simple question-what should the Australian government do to better encourage more Australian tourists to visit Australia-I heard a loud and clear Message: We need a more friendly visa arrangement."

The Coalition plans to simplify the visa process, such as allowing Chinese tourists to submit their visas electronically, encouraging Chinese tourists to come to Australia multiple times, and allowing Chinese tourists to apply for a visa within 24 hours with an additional fee.

In addition, the Coalition Party also promised to reduce the tax burden of the tourism industry, increase funding for Tourism Australia, expand the working holiday visa program and concentrate government resources to tap the opportunities of the Asian century.
