[quote=JIMMYB,245112]Source: www.china.org.cn. Benefits of Chinese green card Long validity Foreigners without a Chinese green card need to renew their residence permit once a year. There are also limitations over the time duration and location they can stay within the PRC. In comparison, a Chinese green card for foreigners below 18 years of age is valid for five years and for those above 18, it is valid for 10 years. Because the Ministry of Public Security issues the card, it is valid throughout China. Easy entry and exit With a passport and Chinese green card, one can go in and out of China freely without needing a visa, thus a green card saves time and expense needed to get a visa each time you travel through customs. A Chinese green card can also be used separately as a legal certificate to stay in Beijing. Employment Expats without residency permits and who come to study in schools are not allowed by law to work in China without approval. However, there is no such employment regulation limiting foreigners with Chinese green cards. This means expats with a Chinese green card should be allowed to work freely and treated according to all Chinese labor laws. Rent Expats with a Chinese green card have the same rights in civil and commercial affairs as Chinese citizens. They can rent or lease houses without examination or approval from the public security bureau. The following are some examples of the advantages of a working and residing license in Beijing: Children's education Expats with a Chinese green card have the same rights and responsibilities (apart from the right to elect, be elected and serve military service) as Chinese citizens of the city they live in. Thus, if in Beijing, their children can go to kindergarten, primary and high schools without extra fees. Buying a home With a green card, one can buy commercial housing or even economic-class houses in the city they reside in, if they meet the requirements. Driver's license With a green card, one can apply for a driving license, a temporary driving license, or automobile registration. Opening an enterprise They can establish an enterprise in the city they live in, and apply for scientific and technological project sustentation. Professional status They can join the city's talent cultivation projects and apply for awards given to talents and experts. They can also take part in professional qualification tests and registration. Insurance They are valid for basic retirement insurance, city workers' basic medical insurance and can store money for housing in an accumulation fund. Investment Expats with a Chinese green card and without Chinese nationality enjoy the same investment advantages as other foreigners in China. (Beijing.gov.cn, China Daily, October 16, 2006) [/quote]
