The UK/China Approved Destination Status (ADS) Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed on 21 January 2005. The aim of the MoU is to assist travel by groups of Chinese tourists to the UK. The category of ADS visitor is designed to reflect the terms of the MoU, and cater for Chinese nationals wishing to travel to the UK as part of a tourist group of five or more people.

The ADS visitor category does not replace the general visitor category for Chinese nationals, and you must continue to treat ordinary visit applications from Chinese nationals in the normal way.

The ADS scheme operates through a limited number of designated tour operators, accredited and trained by the British embassy in China, who submit visa applications to the British embassy for each member of a tour group.
