Foreigners in China could be deported and banned from re-entry for 10 years if they break the country’s coronavirus-related rules, the government has warned. China’s National Immigration Administration announced on its website on Friday that foreign quarantine evaders and rule breakers would face consequences as the vast majority of China’s dwindling COVID-19 cases continue to arrive from overseas.
While Chinese citizens can be fined or jailed for breaking quarantine and other public health rules, foreigners could see their visas cancelled and find themselves deported from China. Those who are forcibly expelled would not be permitted to re-enter for between 12 months and 10 years, the SCMP reports.
There have been reports of foreigners breaking public health and quarantine measures, such as three people jumping a queue to get tested in Qingdao and one man who reportedly bit a nurse in Guangzhou who was trying to stop him leaving a hospital.
As almost all foreigners were banned from entering China on March 28, however, the overwhelming majority of new imported coronavirus cases are being carried by Chinese citizens returning from abroad. China has also grounded most international flights and taken the unprecedented step of asking foreign diplomats not to return to the country until next month.
Just as Chinese people have experienced racism and xenophobia in other parts of the world due to fears of the virus, foreigners in China are now receiving frosty treatment. In recent weeks there have been reports of expats being refused service at restaurants, bars and salons and even finding themselves barred from their homes by their residential committees. There have also been many complaints among the sizable African community in Guangzhou. Some say they are being unfairly treated after rumors began to circulate about a COIVD-19 outbreak within their community.
Zhao Lijian, spokesman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry, has dismissed the claims of xenophobia and insisted that China will not tolerate any form of discrimination or racism.

Being banned from China could be more of a benefit than punishment. There are many nicer and less totalitarian countries in Asia to work and live. Soon you won't have many foreigners to expel as they are voluntarily leaving or when their companies relocate to Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia and Taiwan.

Some foreigners seem to forget that we are guests of China. We are not entitled to any special favors. Since we are guests, we are expected to follow house rules. I am not always happy with new policies that are placed on foreigners, but I remember that I am a guest. When I can no longer accept the house rules, I have one choice....leave the country. I am not there yet.

there are rules, and there is racial targeting (becasuse they can now). By and large people will obey the new rules, but when they are applied harshly to one group (i.e. non-Chinese) it is a bit racist. A compatriot of mine who has been resident for 18 years has found his neighbours become hostile and abusive, not from him disobeying any of the additional restrictions, but becasue he is not Chinese. Non-Chinese are being blamed for new cases of the virus. targeted restrctions have legitimised xenophobia. Some businesses are refusing non-Chinese, taxis are refusing non-Chinese. this is nothing to do with wanting 'special favours' but more to do with racism beling more overt and legitmised. (only we can not call it racism because it does not exist in China)

Sorry that you and your friend have found a few issues. Maybe it is your location in China. I have not heard of anything like this from my foreign friends here, or within the expat wechat group. Education companies and schools are especially worried about not getting enough foreign teachers to return to China. Many of my students have voiced concern about foreigners leaving the country. As in all societies, there are always idiots which include racists. I just have never experienced it.

If China insists of labeling foreigners as guests, they surely have a responsibility to make them comfortable and treat them with basic courtesy. For example, when people visit your home, you won't insult them, refuse them food or drink or make special house rules designed to embarrass them, would you? Yelling insults, refusing us taxi rides or hotel rooms and pointing and shouting at us on the street is NOT being a good host!

@ nashboroguy. This was a business man who has been successfully running and managing a business (employing many local people) in Shenzen. otherwise tolerant neighbours shouted abuse at him for no other reason than he was foreign. TBH if education companies are having problems getting foreign teachers, it is brobably because foreingers are tired of being screwed over, and recent treatment has emphisised how China will always treat foreigners as the 'other', unlike other coutries who allow and welcome new citizens.

Yes, foreigners bring it on themselves just by being foreign. Let's hear it for (state) sanctioned racism - wherever you are and whoever you are !! When locals turn on you because of un-grounded or stirred up fears, yes it is time to leave. Let's forget any roots you have put down or previously positive experiences you have had to date. Yes, any country that treats you like crap for no reason despite you following and respecting local rules, is not worth staying in. May as well close the business and put 100 + people out of work (not an Education employer). Who cares that local families will experience some difficulties as long as whitey can now be abused with impunity. Go racism (in all countries) - that's all that matters! And we know there is no racism in China - (because it is well known that only whitey can be racist)
