Response to the US’s new visa rules for Chinese citizens has been apparently in visa applications and potentially real estate investment, reports The New York Post (8 March 2015). The announcement sparked an immediate 68.2% burst in visas issued in December and January. “Searches on our site and others leaped immediately after the November announcement” said Simon Henry, Co-CEO of Juwai. He added: “We are seeing the tip of the iceberg. State enterprises are investing in real estate but the real wave is the upper middle class spreading their wings . . . with a 10-year visa, more will buy property.”
