China to halt individual Taiwan tourism permits for 47 mainland cities

BEIJING, July 31 (Reuters) - China’s culture and tourism ministry said on Wednesday it will stop issuing individual permits for travel to Taiwan for people in 47 mainland cities from Aug. 1 due to the state of relations with the island.

The ministry did not elaborate.

People from the mainland need permission to travel to the self-ruled island that Beijing regards as a renegade province. (Reporting by Beijing Monitoring Desk Writing by Se Young Lee Editing by Robert Birsel)
