China mulls strengthening management of border travel, indicating the regions where many tourists have taken part in gambling may have their border tourism activities suspended or even terminated.

The announcement came as five departments, including Ministry of Culture and Tourism and Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said that they are collecting feedback for a revised draft policy on border tourism.

The draft encourages border areas to create distinctive tourism destinations, clarifies that border travelers can flexibly choose entry and exit ports, and simplifies past documents regarding border tourism, according to the announcement on the official website of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism.

It also clarified that the border agencies must not arrange tourism activities that involve obscenity, gambling or drug trafficking.

If a tour group member is punished for participating in gambling activities more than three times within a year, border tourism activities in the area would be suspended or even terminated, the draft document read.

If a member of a foreign tour group illegally enters an area beyond the tourism cooperation agreement or stays in China illegally, the border agency shall promptly report it to the public security and tourism departments, the draft said.

The previous regulations, which were launched in 1997, have not adapted to the needs of the new situation, and some new problems that have been exposed in border tourism need to be regulated.

五部门就边境旅游管理办法公开征求意见

据文旅部网站消息,为贯彻落实《国务院关于支持沿边重点地区开发开放若干政策措施的意见》(国发〔2015〕72号)和《国务院关于取消和调整一批行政审批项目等事项的决定》(国发〔2014〕27号)有关要求,推进“放管服”改革,促进边境旅游发展,加强边境旅游管理,文旅部会同外交部、公安部、海关总署和移民局等部门研究起草了《边境旅游管理办法(修订征求意见稿)》(简称“修订征求意见稿”),向社会公开征求意见。意见反馈截止日期为2022年9月29日。

据悉,修订征求意见稿共二十六条,主要修改内容包括:(一)落实中央“放管服”改革要求。落实国务院关于取消“边境旅游项目审批”和“放宽边境旅游管制”的要求,鼓励边境地区打造具有特色的边境旅游目的地,明确边境旅游团队可以灵活选择出入境口岸,并删除了边境旅游审批、就近办理出入境证件等前置条件。同时,明确边境地区的范围按照我国与毗邻国家签署的边界或者边境口岸管理制度协定执行。

(二)细化边境旅游合作协议相关规定。围绕边境旅游合作协议怎么签等问题,立足统筹发展与安全,完善边境旅游合作协议的签订主体、内容、程序。一是要求意向性边境旅游合作协议签订前,省、自治区人民政府应当征求国务院文化和旅游、外交、公安、海关、移民等有关部门的意见;二是意向性边境旅游合作协议签订后,在征求文化和旅游、外交、公安、海关、移民等部门意见无异议并报国务院审批同意后,可以对外签订正式协议。

(三)明确边境社的审批条件和程序。围绕边境社怎么管等问题,进一步明确边境社的审批条件和审批机关,做好与《中华人民共和国旅游法》第二十九条的衔接。

(四)进一步强化对边境旅游市场的管理。明确在边境旅游合作协议商定的范围内,多次发生旅游者参与赌博活动的,可以暂停或者终止该区域的边境旅游活动;明确了边境社不得安排旅游者从事“含有淫秽、赌博、吸贩毒内容”,“移动、损毁界标和界线辅助设施,损害陆地国界清晰和安全稳定”,“帮助他人携带夹藏违禁品的行李物品出入境”等9种活动;明确了不得安排旅游者到国家禁止前往的地区旅游;明确了依法取消边境社边境旅游业务经营资格的4种情形;此外,还明确了边境旅游团队名单表、整团出入境等相关制度。
