Q: If you enter, can you exit?

https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/traveladvisories/traveladvisories/china-travel-advisory.html

 

Just issued, any guesses on response? When was the last travel advisory issued for China? How often has this happened?

 

Not sure if this is constrained escalation or just a pissing contest, but its definitely about the 2 American kids detained over their father's corruption and not allowed to leave China. How will this effect tourism?

I read US State Department advisory on travelling to China yesterday ... It looks like real warning.

          US issues travel warning for China, says ‘exit bans’ used to compel participation in probes      

 

Published time: 3 Jan, 2019 16:47          

The State Department has issued a warning to US citizens traveling to China to exercise increase caution accusing Beijing of "arbitrary enforcement of local laws."      

US authorities issued the level 2 travel advisory on Thursday, suggesting that those who plan to visit China proceed with increased caution. The warning claims that China has “asserted broad authority” in detaining US citizens and not allowing them to leave the country.

 

The alert also suggests that sending electronic messages which criticize the Chinese government could be enough to provoke detention or deportation. They claim that Chinese authorities might deny detainees access to US consular services, or subject them to “prolonged interrogations and extended detention.

 

The US authorities recommend people carry their passports with them at all times and register their trip with the government’s "smart travel" program.

This comes on the same day a Beijing prosecutor asserted that that two Canadian citizens detained mid-December had “without a doubt” broken Chinese law, despite that official charges have yet to be filed. Although both sides deny that the case is linked to the detention of Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou in Canada 9 days earlier, many speculate the detention was conducted in retaliation. The international back-and-forth comes against a broader background of continued trade conflict between China and the US, who filed the original charges against Meng.

The US State Department introduced a color-coded, four-level travel warning system in 2018. Level 1 advises travelers to “exercise normal precautions,” and applies to countries like Austria, Belgium and Estonia. Level 2 recommends travelers “exercise increased caution,” as is the case with China. Level three asks Americans to “reconsider travel” to countries like Haiti and Pakistan, while Level 4 simply warns “do not travel,” and applies to 11 countries including Iraq, Afghanistan, and North Korea.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
