Beijing, Nov.11 (People's Daily Online) -- On Nov. 10, the Chinese mainland officially granted permission for direct relatives of other provinces on the Chinese mainland to join local tour groups traveling to Taiwan, and travel agencies organized a cross-region tour group formed by a single organization to travel to Taiwan, according to the press conference of the sixth Cross-strait Taipei Tourism Exhibition.

Travel agencies can organize direct relatives of other provinces on the Chinese mainland to join local tour groups to travel to Taiwan as well as help them apply for Taiwan pass and other formalities according to relevant provisions of the Public Security Bureau of China. And these travel agencies can also organize cross-region tour groups formed by a single organization to travel to Taiwan.

Since Taiwan opened to mainland Chinese tour groups in July 2008, more than 2.8 million people from the Chinese mainland have visited Taiwan in groups. The release of this cross-region group tour policy will facilitate tourist travel to Taiwan from the Chinese mainland and promote the healthy development of Taiwanese tourism.
