King and Capital Partner Huang Yonghua interviewed by China National Radio: to explain the new law of China on entry and exit control combined with the “three illegal situation.”
On August 3, 2012, King and Capital Partner Huang Yonghua was interviewed by the China National Radio “Voice of China” program, to explain the new People's Republic of China Law on the Control of Exit and Entry.
The law, which was passed at the twenty-seventh session of the standing committee of the eleventh National People’s Congress on June 30, 2012, and will come into force on July 1, 2013, increases the role of exit and entry regulations in national security, and supports the appropriate movement of people in order to assist in the development of the economy and society. The law also strengthens entry and exit management while preventing any inconvenience to normal diplomatic movement.
Mr. Huang assessed the impact of the new rules on the current situation and how they would solve problems in the current entry and exit management practice. He stated that great progress and development had been achieved in many aspects of the system. Specifically, the penalty for foreigners under the “three illegal situation,” involving foreigners in China with illegal entry, illegal residence and illegal employment was now more serious, while a "talent introduction" category had been added to the ordinary visa, and the management system of foreigners’ residence and green card had been improved. In addition, an integrated entry and exit information management platform had been established, and the principle of paying equal attention to management and service expressed both in general and specific rules. These were all the highlights of this new law.
