Engaging in business and living in a foreign country usually requires individuals to obtain the necessary work permits to prove their skills and the necessity of employing them. F&P offers one-stop business visa services, including work visas, business visas and accompanying family visas.
As a professional business consulting firm we are naturally procedural oriented. We understand the nuances of the government's application and anticipate many complications that could delay the process. We ensure that the work permit applications of entrepreneurs, business partners and foreign employees and their families are processed in a timely manner and without delay.
In the last few years, the Chinese government has simplified the process for applying for a work permit, by putting everything under the umbrella of one agency, SAFEA (The State Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs).
In order to obtain a long-term work and residence permit in China, applicants outside China must first apply for a Foreigner's Work Permit Notice from SAFEA. After receiving the work Notice Letter, they can apply for Z visa to the local visa center to enter China. Once you arrive in China, you will need to apply for a SAFEA Foreigner's Work Permit, which is a physical card, with which you can apply for a long-term residence permit at the Entry and Exit Bureau of your resident city.
