China Updates their VISA Policy read more
Jul-10th-2015 | Post by expatree

China has now implemented a new set of rules regarding their VISA policies as well as resident permits. As usual, Expatree seeks out to inform you the advantages and little tricks concerning these new rules imposed.

D VISA (also known as the Green Card) can now be applied for given you meet the following criteria: you are a foreign expat that has worked in Shanghai continuously for 4 years, including having permanently resided in China over 6 months at a time; your salary is over 600,000RMB per year and your income tax is 120,000RMB annually; have no criminal record in China and back in the country of origin.

R VISA demands that the expat work for a company that has a valid high-tech certificate. This VISA is valid for 5 years and the great advantage is that after you have worked for 3 years you are eligible for the D VISA.

As a university student, a fresh trick if you plan to open up a business is to apply for the 2 year personal affairs resident permit S1 VISA.

Following 50% discount of Gucci's offering in Shanghai, Givenchy, YSL, Prada started 70% off promotional campaigns in Hongkong. Suddenly all these luxury stores were seething and crowded with Chinese consumers. "Crazy" might be a best word to describe this situation.    

Time goes back, to Chinese traditional mind Hong Kong can be a shock to the first comer, with billboards flashing Swiss watches and Italian shoes dominating the skyline. Louis Vuitton’s lights square up against Burberry’s cinema screens. This Vegas like glitter reflects the novelty of luxury in China, and the country’s new importance to luxury. Today nearly one third of all personal luxury goods sold worldwide are bought by Chinese consumers.

Mainlanders become familiar with the brands through ma
