Sim­pler For­eign­ers’ Per­mits

ChinAfrica - - News Roundup -

China will stream­line work application pa­per­work for for­eign­ers in an ef­fort to at­tract more ta­lent. The pilot scheme will cover pro­vin­cial-level re­gions in­clud­ing Beijing, Tianjin, He­bei, Shanghai, An­hui, Shan­dong, Guang­dong, Sichuan and Ningxia, from Oc­to­ber 2016 to March 2017, the State Ad­min­is­tra­tion of Foreign Ex­perts Af­fairs (SAFEA) said in Septem­ber. Un­der the cur­rent sys­tem, for­eign­ers must ap­ply for two types of work per­mit: an em­ploy­ment li­cense for foreign em­ploy­ees and a foreign ex­pert work per­mit for top ta­lent, which are is­sued by the Min­istry of Hu­man Re­sources and So­cial Se­cu­rity and SAFEA re­spec­tively. The trial will unify the two per­mits into a sin­gle work per­mit, mak­ing it eas­ier for for­eign­ers to work in China, said Gao Xiang, Di­rec­tor Gen­eral of the De­part­ment of Poli­cies
