China to streamline 'green card' application

  • China will make it easier for foreigners to apply for permanent residence permits, or "green card", to attract more talent from overseas, a high-level meeting decided on Tuesday.

    China will "optimise" requirements and streamline procedures for applications, media reports quoted a statement released after the 16th meeting of the Central Leading Group for Deepening Overall Reform.

    The meeting chaired by President Xi Jinping passed a guideline on the management of foreigners' permanent residence.

    "China will manage foreigners' permanent residence in a reasonable, open and pragmatic manner," said the statement. (Source: IANS)
