    This is the kind of behaviour you would expect from countries like North Korea or Australia. But China?

    This is ancient news. The policy on restricting non-essential travel out of China has been in place since 2020.

    I am assuming that since this is the first time they've had to deal with widespread Covid outbreaks there is a lot more media attention on these issues?

    No clue why people want to leave suddenly ... I think it's a emigration wave of sorts, not just people jonesing for a beach vacay.

    Not really as the clipping of passports of returning Chinese seems quite a new policy development:

    I've known about this since 1992.

    * except for the clipping passport part

    This tightening and loosening of travel permissions and other societal controls seems to be a cyclical thing under the longer-lasting authoritarian regimes. It happened in the USSR, cold war eastern Europe, it happens in Cuba, up north and even (much more conservatively) in the DPRK.

    This is a huge concern going forward for HKSAR passport holders.

    Oh yes because there certainly was no such thing as Chinese tourism before Corona.

    So, when does CE PC Plod enact this directive here? One country, one system now.
