China is still refraining from identifying any blacklisted destination targeted

China’s Ministry of Culture and Tourism has just introduced its third batch of blacklist measures targeted towards overseas tourist destinations that attract Chinese tourists for gambling activities. ​

China PoliceThe Ministry stated, “The Ministry of Culture and Tourism is to adopt a measure to blacklist the third batch of travel destinations, in response to the recent developments whereby some cities abroad have lured Chinese tourists for gambling activities.”

The expansion of the list first started in January 2021 but has never been made public.

As part of this clampdown, the ministry announced that together with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Public Security, the National Immigration Administration, and the Civil Aviation Administration of China, will adopt measures to suspend outbound tour groups and the arrangement of tourist visas for trips to these cities and attractions abroad that are on the ‘blacklist’; and reinforce the restrictive measures on business jets [travel] and charter services.

Apart from enforcing this new law in China, the ministry will work with several other government departments to suspend tour groups and arrangement of tourist visas for outbound travel to the specified destinations.
