Philippines suspends visa on arrival for Chinese nationals

The Philippines said it has stopped granting visas on arrival to Chinese nationals in an effort to stop the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus.

The Philippine Bureau of Immigration said in a statement Tuesday that its Visa Upon Arrival program is often used by Chinese tour groups when visiting the Philippines, and said the decision was aimed at slowing down the influx of tourists.

The bureau added that there is no order barring Chinese nationals from entering the country.
