摘要:

签证政策对入境旅游增长的推动作用不言而喻。过境免签政策作为一项在国际上行之有效的积极签证政策,亦成为我国促进入境旅游增长的方法之一。本文以京津冀地区为例,基于2008年至2016年的面板数据,创新性地采用倾向得分匹配—双重差分方法(PSM-DID)对过境免签政策的入境旅游增长效应进行验证。结果显示,过境免签政策显著地促进了入境旅游的发展,且此项政策的促进效应当即有效;但是随着时间的推移,碍于该项政策的缺陷,过境免签政策的有效性有所下降。此外,本文采用安慰剂检验后回归结果依然稳健。本文对于研究签证政策的有效性、过境免签政策实施的改进以及旅游研究领域政策评价研究方法的完善都具有参考价值。

Abstract:

Researchers have been focusing on the tourism policies due to the varied policies implemented by the government significantly affecting the development of tourism industry. In particular, visa policies, as the fundamental institutional arrangements of international tourism flows, are attracting increasing attention in the study. Visa restriction and visa liberalization are the important instruments for controlling the movement of people. As a result, visa policy becomes a guarantee of national and economic security while it will also lead to economic loss from refusing potential trade, investment and tourists. Regardless of the reasons for visa policies, the positive impact of visa liberalization and the negative impact of visa restrictions on tourism have become the consensus of most studies. However, transit visa-free policy, as an effective and active visa policy internationally, has attracted few attention. In this paper, based on the panel data from 2008 to 2016 in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region in China, the combination of matching method and difference-in-difference (DID) method was innovatively used to verify the growth effect of transit visa-free policy on inbound tourism. The results showed that the policy significantly promoted the development of inbound tourism, and its promotion functioned immediately. However, due to the flaws of the policy, the effectiveness became weakened gradually. In addition, the regression results were still robust after the Placebo test. This paper is referable for the validity of visa policy, the implementation of visa-free policy and the improvement of research methods for policy evaluation in tourism research.

Key words: transit visa-free policy, inbound tourism, PSM, DID, Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei
