(South China Morning Post) Chinese tourists in United States told to beware of shootings, expensive medical care|
“Social security in the States is not satisfactory. Shootings, robbery, theft happen frequently,” the statement said.
“Be aware of suspicious people around you and avoid going out alone at night.”
The notice also reminded would-be tourists that the local “911” emergency service lines provide a Chinese-language service.
The embassy notice also advised tourists to avoid confrontation with law enforcement officials at border control points.
“A US visa does not guarantee you have the right to enter the country,” it said. “Law enforcers at the customs [desks] have the ultimate power to decide.”
It went on to say that “arguing with law enforcers won’t help” people trying to enter the country, and “will only make things worse”.
