How To Complete Your Temporary Residence Registration Online
14 May 2018
Chinese law requires overseas personnel staying more than 24 hours in China to register for temporary residency, unless they are staying in a hotel. The registration process, although simple, has been annoying for many and failure to do so within 24 hours of your arrival can cause issues. In fact, according to the new website, registering immediately will be a key factor in all future visa applications.
Today, the Shenzhen Management and Service Center for Expats announced some great news! As a convenience, we can now register through the WeChat app in addition to at the nearest police station!
To Register Online, Follow These Steps:
- Follow the Official Public WeChat Account “深圳公安”
- Find the menu of registration of residence for expats or scan the QR Code below USING WECHAT.
- Fill in the required info.
NOTE: This can only be done using WeChat as the "household info" portion of the application can only be filled in by scanning a QR code that will be placed on the wall of your door. If you cannot find the QR code on your door, or there isn't one there, you will still need to go to police station for registration as before.
