Foreign experts may get longer visas
China is considering making it easier for foreign experts to come and stay by offering fiveor even 10-year multiple-entry visas.
Zhang Jianguo, head of the State Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs and a political adviser, said that this year he will try to make sure that the visa issue will not become a hurdle preventing high-end overseas talent from coming to China.
Many other countries have adopted a flexible visa policy for Chinese citizens.
“For example, many Chinese businesspeople or even students can apply for 10-year multipleentry permits in the United States. I think ... we should ensure that top overseas talented people who want to come and work in China can enjoy the same convenience,” he said.
