On the second floor visitors can enjoy the new Shenzhen Shekou Maritime Museum.
The new facilities provide an information center for locals as well as a place where foreigners can get assistance from very friendly English-speaking staff. The types of assistance they offer include registration services (for expats living in the area... see map below) so foreigners no longer need to go to the police station, advice on marriage or disputes with landlords and employers, guidelines on leases, traveling, currency exchange and more.
UPDATE: As of May, 2018, you can also register online here.
They also provide community information events, of which ShekouDaily is proud to be the organizer of the first one held today Thursday June 29th. We'll post a follow up to the event on ShekouDaily as well.
The center is operated by the Shekou Subdistrict Office and authorized by the Exit-Entry Administration of the Nanshan Public Security Sub-bureau, so you can assure that the information and service you receive here will be up-to-date and accurate.
Their opening hours are from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.
According to the Management and Service Center, there are currently 43,919 registered expats living in Shenzhen and Shekou has the largest community with 6,275 registered with the Shekou Police Station and Shenzhenwan Police Station. With more and more foreigners moving to Shenzhen it's great to see the government put forth this kind of investment and effort to help foreigners living in the community and we're proud to be a part of it.
