China to Ease Visa Rules to Woo Foreign Talent
(Beijing) — China is relaxing its visa rules for foreign workers in a bid to attract global talent to rev up its growth.
A new pilot program unveiled by the Ministry of Public Security on Thursday allows anyone who has been employed in China for at least two consecutive years to apply for a five-year work permit. Earlier, most foreign employees had to apply for a new work permit every year, even when hired on multiyear contracts.
