CHINA – Subsidiary to Process Visa Applications for High-Tech Companies

In order to expedite the processing of work permits and residence permits, the Public Security Bureau in Xi’an has established a subsidiary that will focus on processing visa applications for any companies in the high-tech industry. Also, as previously announced, foreign nationals that work for legal entities that are registered at the high-tech industry district in Xi’an are expected to submit all visa and residence permit applications to the subsidiary office only. Visas will be processed in three working days rather than seven, and residence permits will be processed in five working days rather than 15 working days. Additionally, applicants may opt to request expedited two-day processing to accommodate urgent business situations.
