Approved Destination Status
The Approved Destination Status (ADS) is an agreement between the British Government and the National Tourism Administration of China (CNTA) to facilitate the visit of Chinese tourist groups to the UK. The Approved Destination Scheme is unique to China and is the only route for group tourism from China to the UK. Over 60 Chinese travel agencies are currently accredited to submit Approved Destination Scheme visa applications to the UK Border Agency through the VFS Visa Application Centres. Approved Destination Scheme visas are valid for 30 days and require successful applicants to enter, leave and travel within the territory of the UK as a member of a tour group.
