As China’s economic center, Shanghai not only attracts graduates from various cities in China for employment and development, but also appeals to more and more outstanding foreign graduates to work and start businesses. It is known that foreign nationals must apply for a work visa for employment in Shanghai and obtain a legal long-term residence permit. So, for foreign graduates, are they required to apply for a work visa in Shanghai? How to apply for it?

According to the visa application policies for foreigners recently obtained from our team: Currently, in order to build Shanghai into a science and innovation center, and attract more overseas talents, the Shanghai Labor Bureau has launched special policies for foreign students who meet all the following conditions:

  • 1. Have a master degree or above in Shanghai universities
  • 2. Get employed by companies registered in Shanghai Free Trade Zone or Zhangjiang High-tech Zone
  • 3. Have the necessary professional skills to perform their jobs

If a foreign student meets the above conditions, even if he /she has just graduated and does not have 2 years of full-time work experiences, he /she can directly apply for an employment permit and a residence permit.
