Chapter Summary

This chapter explores (i) the context for limits imposed by Mainland China and Taiwan; (ii) the contents and effects of those limits, including the requirements of prerequisite certificates, invitation letters, and approval from Taiwanese authorities; and (iii) the pre-eminently political nature of the limits. Given that 73.54% of people travelling to China came from the Hong Kong Special Administration Region (HKSAR) and Macao Special Administration Region (MSAR), and 71.90% of people travelling abroad went to those regions, it is imperative to analyse the limits on the right of travelling to or from the HKSAR or MSAR. This chapter has emphatically questioned and criticised the principles of processing applications, to which officials and other researchers have been too accustomed, to call into question.
