Returnees face no work restrictions
The State Council’s Overseas Chinese Office has said there are no policies or regulations restricting overseas Chinese who return to the country to live or work.
The office received a question on its website from a netizen who asked where they could find policies and regulations regarding people who have settled overseas but retained Chinese citizenship, and whether they would encounter any restrictions in finding a job, such as doctors.
In response, the office said detailed information can be found at chinaqw.com, but added that there are no work restrictions for overseas Chinese. Someone can work as a doctor in China as soon as he or she has obtained the necessary qualifications, it said.
