Shanghai outlaws banned items by travelers

Updated 2017-12-13 14:03:19 Global Times

Shanghai Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau recently published a new measurement that outlaws entry-exit travelers from bringing in or mailing any banned items to China, which will take effect in 2018, reported Tuesday.

People who are caught breaking the rules twice within a year will be regarded as "discredited" in the local public credit information service system.

Currently, there are over 620 invasive alien species in China, which have caused 200 billion yuan (.21 billion) in economic damage. Trade and tourism are the primary channels of species invasion.

According to the new measurement, a three-year discrediting period and even some criminal liability will be imposed on serious offenders.
