Foreigners in China to be ranked in overhaul of visa system
In a bid for China to get her share of foreign “talents”, major changes to current work visa system will be implemented, according to reports from English-language daily newspaper China Daily.
The application process for the new work visa system will be streamlined, where applicants are ranked from (A) top talent, (B) professional talent or (C) unskilled/service workers.
A point based system in accordance to the applicant’s background will determine which category they belong to.
Under the current system, confusion often arise from the inconsistent classification of employment licence and foreign expert work permit, both of which are issued by different departments. The new system will aim to eliminate the administrative hurdles.
