California has imposed new travel restrictions in its state of the state campaign ahead of the US presidential election, as it seeks to block US citizens from travelling to the country to vote in the US election.
The restrictions will be imposed from 11 September to 12 October.
They include: California residents who live in California or the District of Columbia will be banned from flying to California on any flight originating in California.
They will also be prevented from travelling between California and Hawaii.
Californians who are residents of Arizona and Hawaii will be prevented travelling to California.
Californian students from Arizona, Arizona and New Mexico will be barred from returning to California from November 6 to 8.
All other Californian citizens who are not US citizens will be required to register with the state.
A new state-by-state travel ban will also apply.
Residents of Texas will be prohibited from travelling from November 7 to November 10.
The list of restrictions includes: Californians will be unable to visit the US, except for their official business, to attend a ceremony, or participate in any other purpose authorized by law.
They also will be subject to all the same restrictions as Californians from the US.
Residents who are citizens of Hawaii and residents of Puerto Rico will be allowed to visit their home islands without being required to do so.
The state will impose new restrictions on the use of electronic travel cards, which will include limiting the number of cards to one per person, and requiring a government-issued ID to make purchases.
In addition, the state will suspend the use, sale and use of credit cards and cash.
Residents will be restricted to a maximum of two nights’ stay in the state without having to pay for any of it.
Residents in Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands will be temporarily barred from entering the state and will be given a 90-day window to move to a new place.
A temporary ban on the importation of US-made goods will also go into effect from 11 to 12 September.
In a separate announcement, the US government said it would be limiting the import of “high-tech electronic devices”.
The announcement said that all US-origin goods made in the USA will be “subject to a 90 day period of quarantine”.
“High-tech” refers to devices that are designed to be used for digital communications, such as smartphones, laptops, and tablets.
The announcement did not give details on the nature of the devices that would be subject.
In California, it is the second state to impose restrictions in the last 24 hours, following the announcement by New York that it would impose new travel bans.
The New York announcement came after a series of reports of attacks on US soil by foreign-based terror groups, including the attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, in September that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.
US President Barack Obama has been criticised by Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump for not doing enough to stop the attacks.
He has also been criticised for not taking tougher action against Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) groups and other foreign fighters.
