China will include Australia in the list of unilateral visa-free countries, Premier Li Qiang said on Monday.

Li, who is paying an official visit to Australia, made the announcement at a news conference held jointly with Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese in Canberra.

During their talks at the Parliament House, the two leaders welcomed the further increase of people-to-people exchanges and highlighted the important role the exchanges play in deepening the bilateral relationship.

They also welcomed the implementation of arrangements to facilitate exchanges, including reciprocal access to multi-entry visas of up to three to five years' duration for business, tourism, and visiting family members.
