Emergency Notice to Hotels

Google+ user Fang Zhongyong (方仲永) wrote simply of this notice he posted on September 28, “A friend sent me this internal notice, which he heard is for the 18th Party Congress.” The notice mentions “municipal hotels,” which are government-owned. Exit-Entry Administrations are part of the Public Security Bureau at the national and local levels.


Emergency Notice

All In-Network Hotels:

Starting today, if you have guests checked in who are holders of J-1 visas (resident foreign journalists), J-2 visas (temporary foreign journalist) or other resident permits staying as “journalists,” you are responsible to promptly report their presence to your respective Exit-Entry Administration. The fifteen municipal hotels should report to the second unit of the Municipal Branch of the Exit-Entry Administration. Every work unit should strictly implement these instructions. If there is any delay or failure in reporting, we will investigate the responsible work unit according to regulation.

Once each work unit has received this notice, all should immediately report to their front desk managers to plan its implementation. Once the front desk managers of the fifteen municipal hotels have completed these arrangements, they are to promptly report to the second unit of the Municipal Branch of the Exit-Entry Administration.
