The elevated travel advisory is out of concern that China may arbitrarily enforce local laws and detain United States citizens without cause using exit bans.

The state department also said that China might force a USA citizen or U.S.

They cautioned that Chinese authorities sometimes keep US citizens in the country for years through "exit bans".

The department says the bans can be used to lure US citizens back into China, or to compel them to stay in the country because of Chinese government investigations or civil disputes.

He dismissed the latest USA travel advisory, saying that the large number of American visitors to China a year ago alone was proof that China was a safe country. "This warning will just stir up anti-Chinese sentiments in the USA, since many Americans [already] feel threatened about China's growing power", said Neumann, adding that American visitors to China should not feel at risk.

Sheldon Hunt, who works at Canadian National Railway in Shanghai, said the warning would prompt people investing in China to be much more cautious and look to other, more promising and secure countries.

Trump says he’s unconcerned about Apple’s China sales warning
Apple undoubtedly has some strong competitive advantages in the marketplace. "This is more political than it is Apple execution". In a letter to investors Wednesday, CEO Tim Cook explained that Apple is grappling with several issues, many related to China.

"Chinese citizens and USA citizens of Chinese heritage may be subject to additional scrutiny and harassment, and China may prevent the US embassy from providing consular services".

The advisory, which warns of the potential for arbitrary detentions, "cannot stand up to scrutiny", said Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang, who noted that 2.3 million Americans visited China between January and November 2018. They have only been granted limited access to Canadian consular services.

A group of Canadian lawmakers travelling to China this weekend will use the trip to push for the release of two Canadians detained there since last month, says a Conservative MP in the delegation. Liu has been accused of massive fraud by Chinese officials.

Diplomatic tensions between Canada and China have escalated since the arrest of Meng Wanzhou, Huawei's chief financial officer and daughter of the company's founder, at the request of the United States.

"The travel advisory issued by the USA, quite frankly, can not stand up to scrutiny". "US citizens may be subjected to prolonged interrogations and extended detention for reasons related to "state security".
