It says "visum" but what they mean is "admission". The category "anyone
working to advance internet censorship" is not specific enough for legal
purposes. Also infringes the basic principles under Article 2 UDHR, in
particular when you consider that US citizens enjoy the liberty to
"advance internet censorship" as they desire.
