Additional information:


  • The application should be done through the Public Security Bureau where the Chinese spouse’s hukou is located.


  • The official waiting period is six months, but it can go up to two years and the exact time will vary from one location to another. 


  • During that waiting period, the Public Security Bureau will not keep your passport with them, so this will not affect your travel and business affairs in the meantime.


  • The non-national must stay in China for at least three consecutive months each year to maintain the “Green Card.”


  • Some Public Security Bureau officers have told people they can work with a “Green Card” issued through any method (marriage, work, or investment), while others have said that only the work-related “Green Card” allows working.

Under the law, if issued a “Green Card” through this method (e.g. marriage) then working in China may not be allowed, and therefore correct working permission documents are still required.





As with all types of Green Cards in China:


(1)  the validity period is ten years;


(2) it is considered a permanent residency in China (which could affect your status in your home country);


(3) foreign nationals are subject to worldwide tax on income and assets paid in China;


(4)  the cards may not be socially accepted in lieu of a passport and visa
