China first implemented measures for foreigners to obtain permanent residence in 2004. The Chinese green card system was introduced the same year. From 2004-2013, 7,356 people have obtained the Chinese green cards. It has been called the most difficult green card to obtain in history. Have you ever considered apply for it? Will life be convenient if you are granted with China's green card?

There don't seem to be many advantages to having a green card in China.
You can not open a bank account with it, you can not purchase a train ticket, you are still considered a foreigner.

Other than the perceived 'face' of having one (something most foreigners are not bothered about), there are few advantages to having one, unlike having a green card from America, for example.

Are China's green cards worth it?

I'll take one.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

If there are no advantages, why do so many people want to apply for it? Just for saving the face? I'm confused.

China is a promising country when it comes to a whole lot of things. Having a green card is worth it  especially if you are looking far into the future.
