TALLAHASSEE, FL – Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed a series of bills into law on Monday that, among other things, prohibits Chinese citizens from purchasing property and homes within the state as a means to “counteract” what he said was “the malign influence of the Chinese Communist party.”
DeSantis signed three bills on Monday; one of the bills bans Chinese nationals from buying land in Florida, except under the condition that they are either American citizens or permanent residents. A Chinese citizen with a non-tourist visa would only be allowed to purchase less than two acres of land, and that land must be located at least 5 miles away from any U.S. military installations.
The bill places milder restrictions upon citizens from several other foreign countries as well. Russian, Iranian, Cuban, Syrian, North Korean and Venezuelan citizens are prohibited from buying land within 10 miles of military bases, but they are otherwise allowed to own property anywhere else in Florida.

The final bill signed by DeSantis prohibits state employees from downloading certain applications onto their government issued digital devices, including popular Chinese-owned video sharing app TikTok.
“Florida is taking action to stand against the United States’ greatest geopolitical threat – the Chinese Communist party,” DeSantis said.
The bills signed on Monday are due to go into effect as of July 1, 2023.
