China introduced friendly immigration policies in Shanghai and Beijing since 2015 to attract foreign “Talent” to work and reside here. The newly issued policies greatly ease the initial process for “Talent” to come into China and enjoy more friendly and easy immigration environment.
Certified foreign “Talent” can enjoy at least below benefits when working and living in Shanghai and Beijing:
- No retire age limitation, which is a good news for those over age foreign employees who have the problem to renew their work permits
- Obtain a long term residence permit up to 5 years
- Eligible to hire a foreign domestic helper
- Eligible to enjoy a short-cut when applying for the Chinese Green Card
