Law - What lawful rights, interests and obligations are foreigners entitled to in China?

The General Principles of the Constitution of PRC states that "the People's Republic of China protects the lawful rights and interests of foreigners within Chinese territory, and while on Chinese territory foreigners must abide by the laws of the People's Republic of China."

Within Chinese territory, the legitimate rights and interests of the foreign visitors are protected by the People's Republic of China. The freedom of foreign visitors is as inviolable as that of the Chinese nationals. Similar to nationals, all foreign visitors must abide by the laws of the People's Republic of China. Any activities that disrupt public order, threaten public security, or infringe upon the interests of the state, the society or the collective would be punished according to the laws of China.

Within the period of their visas, foreign visitors can freely travel the areas open to foreigners. They should, however, respect the traditions and customs of local areas. Those who want to visit areas that are not open to foreigners should apply for a Foreigners Travel Permit from the local public security organ. Only after the approval is granted, can they enter the area legally.

Be happy no matter what....
