A workstation for foreigner’s work permits was inaugurated Thursday at Luohu District International Talent Service Center in Guiyuan Subdistrict.
Two foreigners successfully received their work permits from the workstation during the inauguration ceremony.
The foreigners submitted required materials Oct. 22, received confirmation from authorities Tuesday and got their work permits on site Thursday.
The on-site handling of initial foreigner’s work permit applications is now available at the center’s service window.
In addition, the workstation supports on-site handling of applications for foreigner’s work permit renewal, extension, change and cancellation. It also conducts consultations for foreign expert invitation, residence registration and visa-related matters.
The workstation is designed to better serve foreigners and foreign-invested companies so that they could handle related businesses at hand, officials said at the inauguration ceremony.
Two of the invited expats — Luke Biesiada from Poland and Sajjad Sharief from Canada — expressed their appreciation for the workstation’s establishment. They said this has made their work permit renewal more convenient.
“Luohu is the oldest district in Shenzhen. It is a great mix of old and new. Everything here is convenient and nice,” Biesiada told Shenzhen Daily after the event Thursday.
As of March last year, Guiyan Subdistrict had more than 1,000 expats and over 200 foreign-invested enterprises within its jurisdiction. It is also among the first batch of 20 international blocks in Shenzhen.
Luohu District International Talent Service Center is located on the fifth floor of Dushi Ming-yuan Annex Building, Block F, Shucheng 1st Road in Luohu District.
