The new version of the permanent resident card for foreigners in China can be colloquially referred to as the "Five-Star Card," instead of the previous "Chinese Green Card," according to experts involved in its development.

China's National Immigration Administration will officially issue the new version of the Chinese Foreign Permanent Resident ID Card starting from December 1 this year, the Global Times reporter learned from a press conference on Friday.

During the conference, the new version of the permanent resident card was showed to the public, which incorporates many Chinese elements. For example, the card features a brand-new Great Wall design and includes the five-star elements representing the national emblem.

Experts involved in the development and upgrade of the card stated that the new version of permanent resident card can be aptly referred to as the "Five-Star Card," following the naming conventions popular for permanent resident cards internationally. This not only showcases strong Chinese characteristics and enhances recognition, but also makes it convenient for people both domestically and internationally to mention it.

Previously, this card was commonly referred to as the "Chinese Green Card." However, individuals familiar with the matter told the Global Times that using the term "Five-Star Card" is more appropriate.

The permanent resident card is a legal identity document issued by the National Immigration Administration to eligible foreigners after granting them permanent residency in China. This card can be used as a standalone personal identification document and serves as a valid proof of identity in various situations, including accommodation registration and purchasing tickets for vehicles (ships, planes) without the need to present a foreign passport.
