An ordinary Chinese passport
A Chinese passport for public affairs, variant of the service passport

Visa requirements for Chinese citizens are administrative entry restrictions imposed on citizens of China by the authorities of other states. According to the 1 January 2017 Henley visa restrictions index, holders of a Chinese passport are granted visa free or visa on arrival access to 51 countries and territories, ranking the Chinese passport 85th in the world (tied with the Bhutanese, Chadian, Malian and Rwandan passports).[1] The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the People's Republic of China, however, listed Chinese citizens as having visa-free or visa on arrival access to 58 countries and territories as of November 22, 2016.[2] Before February 2014, Chinese immigration authorities did not generally allow mainland Chinese citizens to board outbound flights without a valid visa for the destination country even if the destination country granted a visa on arrival to Chinese passport holders unless the exit was approved by the Ministry of Public Security. Exceptions were possible if the traveler had a third country's visa and a connecting flight from the destination country to the third country.[3][4]
