Changes to the Chinese Foreign Work Permit system

February 11, 2021 | Business, Company/Commercial, Immigration

The Chinese government has made changes to it’s  Foreign Work Permit system. A new online portal has been launched whereby employers must now register and re-verify their accounts to be able to make work permit applications in future. This means that the previous work permit application process is no longer valid and all applications should be made through the new portal.

The verification must be completed before employers can make any further applications. This includes updating contact details and information for the company representative and legal representative details and providing any documentation supporting this. 

Application delays have been advised to be expected due to the transition from the old system to the new online portal.
