New Data in Immiguru: China – Employment Permit with R (Talent) Visa (Consular Application) to Shanghai

We’re very pleased to announce that the Employment Permit with R (Talent) Visa (Consular Application) to Shanghai, China was added to Immiguru this week.

The employment permit with a multiple-entry R (talent) visa is a route for highly skilled foreign nationals or those with skills which are urgently needed by China.

This is the process for obtaining the R visa pre-arrival at a Chinese consulate abroad. Application on arrival and post-arrival conversion processes are also available.

Qualifying applicants in Shanghai for more than six months can obtain a five year work-type residence permit (compared to one year for a Z visa holder), a shorter route to permanent residency (Green Card) and other benefits.

Many thanks to our partners in China, Lehman, Lee & Xu and Fredrikson & Byron for their help with this!
