BEIJING -- China has opened 19 new inbound duty free shops for domestic shoppers, the Ministry of Finance (MOF) said on Monday.
The new duty free shops are in 13 airports including Guangzhou Baiyun, Hangzhou Xiaoshan and Qingdao Liuting, and six ports.
Passengers can carry up to 8,000 yuan ($1,230 dollars) worth of duty-free goods, up from the previous 5,000-yuan limit, when clearing the customs, the MOF said.
The new shops will feature more products than existing inbound duty free outlets, the MOF said.
