Packer calls for Australia to relax China tourism visas

    James Packer told a local radio station that the Australian government should make it easier for Chinese tourists to visit Australia. He said it’s harder for Australia to attract Chinese visitors because they have to apply in English and on paper forms rather than online. “’Why would it be any harder for a Chinese citizen to get a visa to visit Australia than it would be for an American citizen to get a visa to visit Australia? I don’t think it makes sense that visa application forms in China should be filled out in English and I don’t think it makes sense that they have to be done through the post. There’s a new world out there,” he said.
