New Social Security Rules for Expatriates in China

01/09/2011

On 1 July 2011, the PRC Social Insurance Law came into effect. In its Article 97, the new law generally provides that foreigners working in China are able to participate in the Chinese social security system. However, from the law itself, it was not clear whether such participation is mandatory or not.

On 6 September 2011, the PRC Ministry of Human Resource and Social Securities promulgated the Interim Measures on Participation of Social Insurances by Expatriates Working in China (the "Measures"). The Measures will take effect on 15 October 2011. According to the Measures, basically all expatriates working in China will be required to participate in the PRC social security system in the future.
