Got a notice from PWC that outlines China's new immigration and visa regulations which becomes effective July 1, 2013.
Here is the first two paragraphs:
"The National People's Congress Standing Committee enacted a new law – the "Exit-Entry Administration Law" ("the New Law") on 30 June 2012, scheduled to be implemented on 1 July 2013. The New Law emphasizes on stricter enforcement over foreign visitors / workers and imposes harsher penalties for non-compliance. It also introduces a new visa category to attract foreign talents and provides an opportunity to apply for
China's permanent residence status.
While detailed implementation rules have not yet been officially announced, the Chinese authority has issued proposed regulations to seek businesses and interest parties' feedback by 3 June 2013."
I could post the entire China portion of the notice, but, it isn't final yet (today is June 13th, 2013). TIC
