The number of Chinese travelling abroad and their spending is increasing every year. In 2015 alone, more than 117 million Chinese tourists went overseas, a 9 percent rise, and total spending surged to more than $104 billion, a 16 percent increase.

Given the sheer scale of the market, more countries are easing their visa policies to lure more Chinese tourists. Let's take a look at eight countries that have issued or are about to issue the 10-year multiple-entry visa for Chinese travelers.

Staring from this December, Chinese tourists will be able to apply for a 10-year multiple entry visa. The visa will allow the holder to stay in the country for 90 days each time. This is the first time that the Australian government is issuing such kind of visa, and it's limited to Chinese citizens at the moment.

In 2015, more than a million Chinese visited Australia, with tourists spending $6,000 per visit.
