The State Council of the People’s Republic of China (“PRC”) recently released the new Exit-Entry Administration Regulations for Foreigners (“Regulations”). The Regulations will take effect on September 1, 2013. They further specify the provisions of the PRC Exit-Entry Administration Law (if you are interested in this law, please click here) on issuance of ordinary visa and residence permits to foreigners and will replace the Implementing Rules of the PRC Administration Law on Entry and Exit of Foreigners which were issued in December 1986. The new Regulations will play a key role in the management of PRC visa and residence policies.
The Regulations introduce new visa and residence categories and change some of the current visa and residence policies toward foreigners.
