Travel to China can be a fun and educational experience for you and your family. There are many benefits to be had from travel to China, but there are some risks as well. The People’s Republic of China is an important nation in world affairs. The PRC shares diplomatic ties with many countries including the USA, Japan, Russia, South Korea, and others.
You will need to have the correct type of visa before you travel to China or you may face problems. There are three types of Chinese visas available. These include the normal tourist visas, business visas, and student visas. There are no special identification requirements for Chinese citizens visiting other countries. However, foreigners are not allowed to stay in any property owned by a Chinese person or hold any office in China without the necessary permits. Certain restrictions apply when traveling to China, and you should familiarize yourself with them prior to making arrangements.
You should not plan to travel to China if you are on any kind of United Nations Security Council sanctions. Your trip can be approved for entrance if you provide information to the Chinese embassy that you are aware of your status. If you fail to indicate your status or fail to acknowledge your entry, the authorities may deny your entry. Tourists who do not comply with these rules can be banned from entering the country.
Before you leave for your trip, you should get a visa number from the Chinese embassy. You will need this number to travel to China on any kind of Visa Waiver Program that the Chinese government offers. Some people get one visa which covers their entire trip while others get a separate visa for each country. There are no special rules for travelers coming to visit the Chinese embassy. They can also visit any other embassy as long as they have an ordinary visa.
When you approach the Chinese embassy to apply for a visa or pass through their checkpoint, you will need to present photos of your face. Many people fear that this requirement may be an attempt to catch them by mistake, but there is no basis for such suspicion. The Chinese government uses a computer program to compare the photos of every visitor, including Chinese citizens, with a database of all visa applicants. If there is a match, the applicant’s visa application is approved and the visa is stamped upon their forehead.
The current US pavilion in Beijing has recently been threatened with closure due to the ongoing trade issues between the US and China. The Chinese government has threatened to close the US economic section in the People’s Republic of China (PRC) if the US proceeds with its complaints. The PRC is one of the member states imposing travel restrictions on American travelers. Some members of the PRC are Taiwan, Vietnam, and Malaysia.
The recent diplomatic crisis between the PRC and the USA is causing much confusion among American travelers planning to travel to China. On July 12th the PRC released its statement regarding the dispute over American citizens who had taken part in demonstrations against China’s territorial expansions. In response, the US State Department called on the PRC to “implement measures inconsistent with its statement”. The PRC responded by stating that it will not give into US requests to stop protests against its actions. The State Department has now issued travel advisories advising travelers to expect travel restrictions and to expect all Chinese state-owned tourism facilities to be closed. There are reports from travelers who say that all flights to China have been grounded.
In the past, the Chinese government has issued statements regarding why state-owned airlines have been denied entry into China, and why the customs and carrier inspections were conducted. Recently, the PRC released another statement regarding inspections of US citizens in China: “In accordance with the policy of reciprocity signed with the US, the foreign airlines which operate flights to China have been requested not to carry passengers who are carrying prohibited drugs”. This is the first time that the PRC has issued a blanket ban on a specific type of drug. There is no clear explanation as to why the Chinese government issued this ban or how it applies to drugs. It could be that the Chinese government is trying to avoid further antagonizing the US after the recent anti-American demonstrations in China. Whatever the reason, the travel advisory issued by the State Department regarding all travel to China has now been suspended all together.
