Shanghai has further relaxed its residency rules to allow non-local fresh college graduates to settle in the city, a move to lure more young workers and develop its talent pool.

Starting this Wednesday for a period until Dec. 31, students who graduate from local universities and work in the city’s five “new cities” and Lingang Special Area of China (Shanghai) Pilot Free Trade Zone can apply for household registration (link in Chinese), or “hukou,” according to a notice issued by the Shanghai Student Affairs Center affiliated to the municipal education commission.
