TODAY: Important Work Permit Renewal Policy Change
28 Feb 2018
As of February 28, 2018, foreign companies must submit work permit renewal applications for their foreign workers at least 30 days before his or her work permit expires, according to a notice from SAFEA. If the company misses the deadline to renew the work permit, the company will need to follow the procedures for applying for a new work permit.
Given that it takes about 15 work days to renew a work permit and seven work days to renew a residence permit, as well as another five work days if that company has not yet registered on the online system, companies are advised to begin the renewal process 60-90 days before the work permit’s expiry date. To renew a work permit, the company must provide the labor bureau with a renewal application form along with the employee’s labor contract, passport, residence permit, and current work permit.
Applying for a new work permit under China’s recently revised system is much more costly and time consuming than renewing one, requiring a notarized university degree, proof of employment, a medical test, and a criminal record check, among other documents. This process takes a minimum of three weeks to a month, but in practice can take up to three months or longer.
