In most cases, U.S. citizens only become aware of the exit ban when they attempt to depart China, and there is no method to find out how long the ban may continue. U.S. citizens under exit bans have been harassed and threatened.
U.S. citizens may be detained without access to U.S. consular services or information about their alleged crime. U.S. citizens may be subjected to prolonged interrogations and extended detention for reasons related to “state security.” Security personnel may detain and/or deport U.S. citizens for sending private electronic messages critical of the Chinese government.
The Chinese government does not recognize dual nationality. U.S.-Chinese citizens and U.S. citizens of Chinese heritage may be subject to additional scrutiny and harassment, and the Chinese government may prevent the U.S. Embassy from providing consular services.

Ontario has 27 people being tested for Wuhan coronavirus, but most remain in their own homes and there is no evidence of person-to-person transmission here, provincial health officials say as the number of confirmed cases remains steady at two.
All the people under investigation who have sought medical attention for symptoms such as cough and fever are “flight related” in regard to trips from China, Dr. David Williams, chief medical officer of health, told a news conference Thursday.
The 27 people awaiting results of nose and throat swabs for the virus are in various locations across the province and “most are not” in hospital, said Dr. Barbara Yaffe, Ontario’s associate medical officer of health. She would not reveal any locations......
The federal government has chartered a plane but still needs China’s permission to fly Canadians out of that country’s coronavirus quarantine zone, Foreign Affairs Minister François-Philippe Champagne said Wednesday.
The evacuation is being planned as the impact of the deadly virus continues to be felt around the world. Airlines have cancelled scores of flights to China amid tight travel restrictions in the affected region, and Ottawa is urging all Canadians to avoid going to mainland China unless it is necessary.
By Wednesday afternoon, 160 Canadians had asked Ottawa to help get them out of Hubei province.
