Starting June 1, 2010, the Department of Exit and Entry Administration under the Ministry of Public Security (MPS) will be authorized to issue corresponding residence permits for qualified foreigners and overseas Chinese who can provide related evidence and need to stay in China for more than six months to facilitate their access in China.

According to the Department of Exit and Entry Administration, more and more foreigners and overseas Chinese have come to China in recent years, to visit relatives, live with family members and support their parents, or to entrust their children in the care of their relatives in China.

Under current regulations, most can apply for a single, double or multiple-entry visa and the maximum period of validity is no more than one year. They can apply for an extension before their visas expire.

Taking into account their actual needs, the MPS launched a policy to facilitate foreigners stay in China for a longer period. People who meet relevant conditions can apply for five kinds of residence permits, including visiting relatives and supporting parents. They can visit China at any time while the permits are valid.
