China denied claims on Friday that it has stopped granting passports to its nationals or barred them from leaving the country, saying that “such falsehoods aim to distort and tarnish” Beijing’s entry and leave regulations. According to a representative for the National Immigration Administration (NIA), such material is meant to undermine the country’s lawful, targeted, and successful entry-exit management measures, which were implemented in the context of maintaining regular COVID-19 response techniques. Since the COVID-19 epidemic, the administration has firmly adopted a policy to avoid both imported cases and domestic resurgences, significantly minimizing the risk of coronavirus caused by anyone entering or fleeing the nation. Immigration agencies at all levels across the country have improved entry and exit measures to offer timely passport services for people who need to go overseas for study, business, research, medical treatment or other purposes. According to China’s law on the control of the exit and entry of citizens, exit and entry documents that are forged, altered, obtained by fraudulent means, or are declared void by issuing authorities shall be invalid.
