Applicants will be expanded to those who qualify as top talent in the Categories of Foreigners Work ing in China, including scientists, entrepreneurs and leading figures in technology-intensive sectors, according to new rules unveiled by the State Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs.


The expiration date of the visa could be extended to five to 10 years after issuance, with multiple entries and 180-day stays for a single entry, the administration said, adding that the categories could be adjusted based on the country’s changing demand for talent.


Spouses and children under 18 of the applicants could gain the same visa, as early as the day after filing applications. Foreign talented professionals could get their confirmation of qualification in five working days. All the ap plicants are given a visa fee waiver, even for urgent applications.

China should reduce the bureaucracy required by Chinese companies to make hiring foreigners easier.
Too many Chinese companies lie to foreigners, who are often better informed on the legalities of working in China - i can name a few who are still prepared to lie to foreign workers about their ability to hire foreigners.

Equally, China should not tie the foreign worker to a single employer if it is serious about attracting 'foreign talent'.
Many other countries allow foreign workers to get a 'work visa' and then allow them to find their own work (legally)
Tying a worker to one employer can end up on a exploitative situation for the foreign worker.

"Tying a worker to one employer can end up on a exploitative situation for the foreign worker."
That is a prevailing "norm" in GCC Countries - "Sponsorship" based work visa. It is "Bonded Labour".

You should just report these companies but you need to have hard evidence or it would backfire on you. Maybe you could approach CCTV if you are in China. There are investigative reporters.
