Xinhua News reports that if you’re not a Chinese resident and are traveling to or from China, expect to have your fingerprints taken. The Ministry of Public Security announced that in a statement Thursday.
In 2017, exit-entry departments across the country will begin to collect the fingerprints of foreign nations aged between 14 and 70. Those holding diplomatic passports or under reciprocal conditions are exempted.
The new system goes into effect February 10 at one airport, so can the others be far behind?
