It Is Almost Impossible To Leave Mainland China With Their Harsh Travel Restrictions

According to a story by The Epoch Times on January 16th, 2022, it talks about how China is restricting people from leaving the country, and even U.S. permanent residents or U.S. citizens have been caught by these incredibly strict measures. Throughout 2021, many Chinese netizens shared on social media their difficulties when applying for passports. For those who had the travel documents, during the exit inspections at the airports, officials asked them difficult questions and carefully checked their passports and visas, some netizens recounted. One even said that their passport was torn by the inspector on the spot.

China’s National Immigration Administration (NIA) in July confirmed that the regime was tightening rules around people leaving the country. At a press conference back on July 30th, 2021, the NIA, also known as the Exit and Entry Administration said, in an effort to block the coronavirus from overseas, it had implemented a series of strict measures to limit people going abroad: suspend issuing ordinary passports for non-essential, non-urgent affairs; and advising applicants to cancel or postpone travel plans if they are not essential nor urgent.

Even U.S. citizens in China could be forced to remain in the country if the communist regime deems it necessary. Under its law, the CCP authorities have broad discretion to block foreign nationals from leaving the country. The U.S. government has repeatedly warned American citizens considering travelling to China about Beijing’s exit bans. In January 2021, the Trump administration issued a China Travel Advisory, stating that Chinese authorities may use arbitrary detention and exit bans to compel U.S. citizens to participate in its investigations, pressure their family members to return to China from abroad and gain bargaining leverage over foreign governments.

Hopefully, people are slowly beginning to realise what a brutal totalitarian regime it is in mainland China, surely people must realise this when they go to China. The people that go over there to work must ask themselves ‘is it worth the risk’ and if they do get stuck out there whose fault is that? can anyone seriously expect any government to bail out complicit or maybe naive travellers to mainland China when they know all the threats involved with such a high-risk journey?. One thing is for sure the communist dictatorship doesn’t care who they affect as they are a law and a power all unto themselves.
