Job offer in Guangzhou - residence permit?
I am looking to complete a 6 month contract in Guangzhou and will need a work permit. Will I also need a residence permit for being there for a comparatively short time?

Also can you advise on the turn around for getting both a work permit and a residence permit (if needed) in place?

Answered by Billie from UNITED KINGDOM | Jul. 16, 2019 20:50

Lauren, if you get job offer, your company can help you to do the work permit. And you should apply for work Z type at CVASC in India and apply for residence permit within 30 days upon arrival in China.
