Foreigners working in China who have obtained work-related residence permits of more than one year at least twice consecutively, foreign management and professional technical personnel working for well-known enterprises and research institutions, as well as members of scientific research and innovation teams, may apply for up to 5-year residence permits through exit and entry administrations of public security organs. Those who meet the requirements may be approved for permanent residence in China.

At the same time, foreign management and professional technical personnel working in China are allowed to relocate to other regions within their respective enterprises or institutions, or to pursue degrees or to continue their education at domestic universities without reapplying for residence permits.

For foreign enterprise management personnel, technical personnel and their accompanying spouses and minor children, the validity period of visa entry will be extended to two years. 

China will also accelerate the resumption of international flights at key aviation hubs such as Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou, South China's Guangdong Province.
