As of 28 April Haikou officially launched the foreigners service integrated window at The Haikou Citizen Tourism Center.
Those in need of visa services no longer need take the trip out to the West Coast of Haikou but can now deal with all their visa related issues much closer to Haikou city center.
The Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine (Health Certificate), Foreign Expert Bureau (Work Permit), and Entry-Exit (Residence Permit) departments have joined together to streamline the application procedure for processing work permits, health certificates and resident permits.
The new service window is a one stop shop for visa applications.
Recent changes to the visa application process:
As of now, those applying for a work and residence permit will need to visit the window no more than twice. This is to have their photo taken, hand in application materials and collect their documents.
The physical examination certificate which is required for a work permit will now be automatically sent to the service window upon completion of the medical exam at the health center.
Upon successful completion of the work and residence permit, this can also be sent to the applicants address. There’s no need to go and collect it.
The new location for work and residence permit applications is located in Binhai park, which is close by Guomao and across the road from Evergreen Park. The window is on the ground floor of the of The Haikou Citizen Tourism Center.
