updated on: 2017-05-12  source:

  Starting from this very month, permit for foreigners to get employment in China mainland and certificate for foreign experts to work in China would merge into one, as news came from the meeting on 3rd May to improve the work permit system for foreigners in Jiangsu. The Foreign Expert Bureau under Jiangsu Provincial Department of Human Resources and Social Security will be in charge of the whole process of issuing the work permit for foreigners in Jiangsu.


  According to Deputy Director General Zhu Congming from Jiangsu Provincial Department of Human Resources and Social Security, a unified permit for foreigners working in Jiangsu is to depart from the overlapping administrations, bull management, and difficulty in inter-departmental communication which used to frustrate an easy and efficient administrative system for those foreigners. Jiangsu Provincial Department of Human Resources and Social Security will work out the official procedure for foreigners to gain work permit in Jiangsu. The complete procedure is digitalized, so that employers and the foreign applicants can finish the procedure online and print it out. The “Work Permit for Foreigners” is the only legal document for foreigners to get employment in China. One permit is given one matching code which will stay with the foreigner for his/her whole life. The approval procedure will be standardized, too. Jiangsu will adopt the “administrative system for managing and delivering services to foreigners working in China” built, operated and controlled by the National Foreign Expert Bureau to process the approval work in the province.


  Human Resources and Social Security Bureaus in different cities (with established Districts) will be authorized by Jiangsu Provincial Department of Human Resources and Social Security to facilitate the applicants to get work permits after this reform. Work permits for foreigners working at Nanjing-based Province (Ministry of the State Council)-owned institutions will be taken care by the Foreign Expert Bureau under Jiangsu Provincial Department of Human Resources and Social Security. Otherwise, employers shall file the application to the Human Resources and Social Security Bureau of the city they are located. Jiangsu Province takes this opportunity to make new ways in foreigners’ administration and to further improve the service system for foreigners who seek for development in Jiangsu, so that these talented people will be willing to come and stay in Jiangsu and are able to tap their full potentials with high chances of mobility within the Province.
