Authorities in the Tibet autonomous region have imposed 15 new bans on border-related activities, according to statement released by multiple regional departments last month.

The announcement was jointly released by the region's departments of public security, commerce, tourism development and foreign affairs, along with the sports bureau and the region's general station of exit and entry frontier inspection.

Under the bans listed, no one may enter the region's border management areas, border zones, special border areas, military restricted zones, military management areas or areas posted with signs saying "No tourists" without a valid border pass or other approval documents.

Refusing or trying to evade frontier inspection and management is prohibited. At the same time, any forgery, alteration of documents, trading, swindling or otherwise falsely using all kinds of border passes is banned.

Meanwhile, acts such as funding, assisting, and organizing or transporting others to illegally cross the national frontier border, or providing conditions for anyone to illegally cross the national frontier border are prohibited, under the rules.

Any activities involving surveys, mapping, exploration, mining, logging, blasting, scientific investigation, mountaineering or filming within the range of the border administrative zone, the military restricted zone or the military administrative zone without proper approval are strictly banned.

The above-mentioned terms are only a small part of the 15 terms; more detailed lists of prohibitions regarding the region's border areas are available online.

The announcement states at its end that any violations of any of the provisions will result in investigations of individuals or involved parties.

If a crime occurs, the people involved will be transferred to judicial organs for further treatment.
