US Warns Citizens Against Travel to China Due to Local Laws – State Department

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – The United States is warning its citizens to exercise increased caution when traveling to China due to local laws that could result in prolonged detention inside the country, the State Department said in a travel advisory on Thursday.

“Exercise increased caution in China due to arbitrary enforcement of local laws as well as special restrictions on dual US-Chinese nationals,” the advisory said. “Chinese authorities have asserted broad authority to prohibit US citizens from leaving China by using ‘exit bans,’ sometimes keeping US citizens in China for years.”

According to the advisory, China uses exit bans coercively to compel US citizens to participate in its government investigations, to lure individuals back to China from abroad, and to aid Chinese authorities in resolving civil disputes in favor of Chinese parties.
The warning comes after Chinese authorities arrested two Canadian citizens in recent weeks on suspicion of threatening national security.
