'Rail, air and other places will be off limits for non-China ID card holders during G20?'

Did you have a dream about this Q or you can provide web link with your 'news', especially 'will be off limits for non-China ID holders' part.

 

I travel freely in China as an EU passport holder since 2009. I even traveled around Xinjiang in 2012/13 without any problems. ID check-up here and there, but that was it.

 

 

Have a look at Yahoo-gle with the same Q in search. Pay 'special' attention to the dates about G20 meeting!

 

Here's one link:

Generaly speaking , all countries taking part in the event have their own teams for the well being of their Delegates .
If you are a known antagonist you might not want to go anywhere near Hangzhou .
You will find that there is a real domestic threat, and therefore the Chinese will not be in a passive frame of mind dealing with foreign protesters .
You also may find a smaller foreign media presence than what you might have seen in the past, and all pictures will come from Chinese media sources.

I read something somewhere a few weeks ago. Yeah, not very credible I know.

 

It said something about between 5th and 15th foreign passport holders couldn't enter or exit Hangzhou and that police would be checking ID and visas more stringently on the street during that time. There was some mention of visiting apartments and workplaces.

 

The standard big event response.

 

Sorry, I can't remember where I saw it or if the source was credible.

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
