How can I stay in China permanently?

Postby inbeijing » Sat Sep 12, 2015 5:48 pm

Applying for Permanent Residence in China is a way for you to live in the country on a long-term basis. In order to qualify for permanent residence status, you must fill at least one of the following criteria:

I. Be a high-level foreign expert holding a post that promotes China's economic, scientific, and technological development, or social progress.

II. Have made outstanding contributions of special importance to China

III. Have made a large direct investment of over US$ 500,000 in China

IV. Have come to China to be with your family, such as spouse, dependent minors, or senior citizens.

You need to hand in your required documents to the overseas affairs department of your municipal or provincial level public security bureau, such as, the Beijing Municipal Public Security Bureau or Shanghai Municipal Public Security Bureau. You Should Submit: (a) Valid Passport or equivalent; (b) Health certificate issued at state level; (c) Credentials proving no criminal record by China embassies or consulates; (d) Two passport photos, no hat; (e) Other relevant credentials if required

Be happy no matter what....
