Foreigners’ work permits in Nanshan District, Shenzhen, are now being processed at the official work station in Zhaoshang Street. This is the first time that Shenzhen has established a work station at the district level.
To deepen the reform of “streamlining administration, delegating powers, and improving services” and optimize the business environment, the Shenzhen Science and Technology Innovation Commission and Zhaoshang Street actively communicated and cooperated to jointly promote the reform of work permits for foreigners coming to China.
Firstly, emphasis is placed on “streamlining” and innovating the approval process. According to statistics, there are 10,922 foreigners from 112 countries in and around Zhaoshang Street, Nanshan District, Shenzhen. The area is home to 6 international schools and numerous well-known multinational companies such as Apple, Philips, IBM, and CNOOC. Previously, employers and foreigners had to go to the Civic Center Administrative Service Hall in Futian Central District to handle work permit-related matters, which was time-consuming and laborious. With the establishment of the work station, the entire process can be completed online, with the Shenzhen Science and Technology Innovation Commission conducting background checks and the Zhaoshang Street service window verifying original documents and issuing permits. Employers and foreigners can now handle work permits conveniently, saving a significant amount of time and effort.
Secondly, efforts are made to strengthen “management” and improve supervision mechanisms. To ensure that the process remains streamlined and orderly, the Shenzhen Science and Technology Innovation Commission has enhanced the training of staff at the work station, requiring them to undergo internships at the service windows of the Civic Center Administrative Service Hall before starting their positions to familiarize themselves with the procedures and work discipline. At the same time, an agreement has been signed with Zhaoshang Street to clarify the responsibilities, work mechanisms, and confidentiality requirements, thereby ensuring the accountability of the service windows. Additionally, the Shenzhen Science and Technology Innovation Commission will conduct random checks on the work station’s operations to strengthen both in-process and post-process supervision.
Thirdly, the focus is on “shenzhen escort service” and the establishment of a service system. By setting up the work station at the street level, services can be extended to the grassroots level, providing convenient services to foreign talents. The street office can also gather information about foreigners and their employers in the area, enabling more precise management and services in terms of community integration, cultural promotion, and epidemic prevention and control. In conjunction with the construction of an internationalized block in Shenzhen, the work station model for work permits for foreigners can be replicated and promoted throughout the city, gradually establishing a comprehensive management system for work permits for foreigners that covers the entire city.
Under the guidance of the Ministry of Science and Technology’s Department of Talent Introduction, the Shenzhen Science and Technology Innovation Commission will continue to strengthen cooperation with the local public security immigration management department, explore more open and proactive policies for foreign talents coming to China for work and entry-exit matters, and establish the “Shenzhen Foreigners’ Employment and Residence Affairs Service Center” and “Foreigners’ Comprehensive Service Management System.” Shenzhen aims to be the first in the country to achieve the six “ones” for the work and residence of foreigners, namely “one set of documents, one form, one application, one window for acceptance, one-stop online services, and one-time completion.” This will attract more outstanding foreign talents to innovate and start businesses in Shenzhen, providing intellectual resources to support the construction of Shenzhen as a pioneer demonstration area of socialism with Chinese characteristics and a model city for building a socialist modernized country.
