[quote=JIMMYB,245100]Source: CRIENGLISH.com. About Chinese Green Card With the approval of China's State Council, the Minister of Public Security, Zhou Yongkang, and the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Li Zhaoxing, jointly endorsed Decree No.74 and officially issued the Regulations on Examination and Approval of Permanent Residence of Foreigners in China for implementation on August 15. According to this regulation, foreigners with eligibility for permanent residence in China will be granted a certificate of identification commonly known as a "Green Card." The regulation has 29 articles in all, specifying the explicit provisions on the prerequisites for foreigners wishing to apply for permanent residence permits in China, required supporting documents, steps to be followed, limits of authority, and cancellation of eligibility, etc. History of Chinese Green Card In 1986, for the first time China granted a German the permanent resident permit, which was looked upon as China's first "Green Card" for foreigners. In 1991, four foreigners got the certificate from the Tianjin Public Security Bureau for their outstanding contribution to Tianjin's economic development. By the end of 2001, China had devised a plan to regulate a "Green Card" system. Subsequently, major cities including Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou issued related regulations. The Law of the People's Republic of China on Control of the Entry and Exit of Foreigners adopted by the Standing Committee of the People's Congress in November 1985. The Enforcement Regulations on Law of the People's Republic of China on Control of the Entry and Exit of Foreigners revised in July 1994. Back to top With the Green Card, You can -- stay in China for an unlimited period of time --enter and leave the country with your valid passport and Foreigner Permanent Residence Permits, with no need to obtain visas --use the Greencard as your single legal document during your time in China. --have a card even more useful than the resettlement certificate or permanent residence certificate.
