KUALA LUMPUR, Nov. 27 (Xinhua) — Malaysia will allow Chinese nationals 30 days of visa-free travel from December 1 this year, Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim announced on Sunday.

Mr Anwar said the move was to celebrate the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Malaysia and China next year, in an address at the annual conference of the People’s Justice Party, which he heads.

Visa-free facilities follow safety procedures to screen visitors and tourists. Malaysia’s state news agency Bernama said details of the visa exemption would be announced by the interior minister soon.

Mr Anwar also appreciated China’s decision to implement a unilateral visa exemption policy for Malaysian ordinary passport holders.
