People traveling by road from Hebei province to Beijing will have to show their identity cards under increased security measures for the 60th National Day celebration.
Authorities say it is just one method of ensuring a security "moat" to keep the capital safe during the festivities, which run from Oct 1-8.
Workers are busy arranging a flower framework in the shape of the Water Cube at Dongdan, Dongcheng district, Beijing in preparation for the National Day holiday which falls on Oct 1.
Chen Jiping, deputy director of the Central Committee for Comprehensive Management of Public Security, said Beijing, Tianjin, Hebei, Shanxi, Shandong, Liaoning and Inner Mongolia autonomous region have a crucial role to play in the security "moat" around Beijing.
Authorities will conduct security checks on roads and neighboring provinces will properly manage local complaints.
Thousands of additional police have already been deployed in the capital, stepping up security checks on key sites such as the subway system and monitoring vehicles entering and leaving the capital.
The police will cooperate to crack down on crimes across provincial borders, tighten control over dangerous objects like explosive materials and regulate the flow of the migrant population. An all-day hotline will be open in the seven places to ensure timely communication.
