The permanent resident permit issued to the foreigners by China was first introduced in 2004. The number of Chinese “Green Card” holders had passed the 10,000 mark by 2016. In recent years the application process to obtain the ‘Foreigner’s Permanent Resident Identity Card (FPRID) has been eased by streamlining procedures and lowering the threshold for applicants. However, this is still a concept that feels off limits for many expats.
The key benefit of having a FPRID is the ability to stay in China for a 10-year time period and permit the holder to enter and leave the country without any visa requirements. In addition, the new FPRIDs now hold functions such as: transactions relating to finance, healthcare, education, transport, telecommunications, tax, social security, property registration, and legal services. This further simplifies the life of an expat compared to the previous generation of PR Cards.
In order to provide you with the latest updates and the opportunity for you to ask questions about the Chinese Green Card, we have invited Sarah Qin, chief consultant at Easy Business Solutions, to interpret the new policies and assess the impact these changes will have for the applicant.
