Foreign workers are classified into three categories in China — A for “top talent,” B for “professional talent” and C for “unskilled workers."
 

Besides global entrepreneurs and leading scientists, foreign scientific and technological researchers as well as new PhD graduates in science, engineering, agriculture and medicine are also classed as top talent, according to new regulations released on Monday by the Shanghai Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs.
 

They can apply for an R visa, the employment visa issued to foreign high-end and much-needed talent, and can enjoy favorable policies such as simplified application procedures.
 

Foreign scientific and technological researchers are also allowed to work part-time in China, but the part-time job should be related to their full-time one.
 

In addition, foreigners who invest or engage in local innovative businesses can enjoy a relaxation in the rules covering age, academic degrees and work experience when they apply for their first work permit.
 

Shanghai is also in need of highly skilled foreigners who hold international vocational certificates.
 

To attract them, the city has relaxed the age limit to 70, and they can get a work permit valid for at least two years.
 

In February 2020, the city expanded its online work permit application services for more foreign employees to avoid them gathering as well as to encourage them to stay during the pandemic.
 

The online services had been limited to top talent, but now also benefit professional talent and unskilled workers.
 

上海降低“外国高端人才门槛” 三大类外国人才来沪工作更便利

上海市科学技术委员会(上海市外国专家局)1日发布《关于持续完善外国人来华工作许可“不见面”审批(4.0版)大力吸引外国人才等有关事项的通知》,这意味着上海将适当放宽年龄、学历等方面的限制,以更大力度引进“科技、创新创业、高技能”三类外国人才。
 

上海市外国专家局副局长黄红表示,上海率先实行更加开放、更加便利的外国人才引进政策,先后推出“不见面”审批1.0、2.0、3.0版,此次4.0版在外国科技人才方面,进一步放宽了学历、经历和年龄的限制,“在这之前,一些外籍青年人才以及理工农医的一些应届博士毕业生,他们不能申请‘外国高端人才’,这次新政推出后,沪研发团队中的一些外籍青年人才以及理工农医的一些外籍应届博士毕业生,可以被纳入外籍高端人才。”
 

根据“不见面”审批4.0版,上海将加大力度引进外国科技人才,进一步扩大《外国高端人才确认函》适用范围,对于参与中国国家任务团队中的外籍科研人员及理工农医等重点学科应届博士毕业生等青年外籍人才,经上海市科学技术委员会(上海市外国专家局)认定后,按有关规定可直接办理《外国高端人才确认函》,最长可申请10年有效期的外国人才签证(R字),其随行家属也可申请相同期限的签证。上海还允许在沪工作的外国科技人才兼职工作。
