This Day in 1989: February 10, 1990, New Regulations Restricting Study Abroad
On February 10, 1990, the State Education Commission published a set of new regulations aimed at restricting college graduates to study abroad, even with their own funds. It was now required that graduates must have worked 5 years before being allowed to go abroad for study. Those with close oversea relatives were exempt and those with distant oversea relatives were allowed to buy off this restriction by paying a significant fee to the government.
