We have received inquiries from some applicants who stated that they meet the income requirements, but the time they’ve been in China is relatively short (haven’t reached 4 years).
For these applicants, if they hold an important position in a company in China and meet the following requirements, they can apply for permanent residence after only 6 months of working in China.
And they do not need to submit the non-criminal record and diploma certification!
1. The position of the applicant needs to be deputy general manager or above, or academic leader, or C-level title. Equity is not required. (position needs to match the title information in the work permit).
2. The paid-in capital of the company needs to be at least US$ 1 million. The company needs to be registered for at least 2 years.
And it needs to be on the national enterprise credit publicity system (国家企业信用公示系统).
