According to one topic at Airbnb communities forum. A westerner didn't know about this and his host didn't mention. So he missed it.
After 2 weeks he back to China again and He was blacklisted by China immigration because during his last trip to china didn't register to Police.
He have to leave China immediately on next flight.
I think that’s extreme & rarely happen.
I think most police station in China don’t bother & some don’t even know what to do or think it’s a hassle. Maybe coz it was a westerner, it’s more obvious rather than us Asians. He/she could’ve breached other immigration rules.
Actually this is the first time I heard of this rule despite having traveled to China many times before & even staying at friend’s house and some hotels that supposedly don’t allow foreigners.
