Residence permit refers to a person’s visa status: It signifies the duration for which the person is allowed to reside within a country of which he or she is not a citizen. The residence permit in China looks just like a visa and is pasted into your passport very similarly and it permits multiple exit and entry during its validity. It gives you the legal right to live in China. Therefore, getting a reliable visa consultant is vital for expatriates who are planning to work in China.
Three types of residence permits can give you the legal right to live in China. They are as follows:
- Permanent residence permits i.e ‘Green Cards’ that accompany the D visas and are renewable every 10 years.
- Temporary residence permits are for those staying for more than six months but less than one year, such as visiting scholars or those coming for job training.
- The Foreigner Residence Permit, typically good for one year and renewable annually, is standard issue for the majority of foreigners working in China, though some (such as company executives, legal representatives, or investors) qualify for a permit that is good for two years.
