illegal residence

 

refers to the illegal act of a foreigner staying in china who has not applied for a visa or residence permit during the valid stay period stipulated by the visa or residence permit.

 

illegal employment

 

the “three illegals” are foreigners who have no legal status in china. illegal employment for survival will inevitably affect the labor market and the employment environment. at the same time, this may lead to increased crime and seriously disturb the stability of the social order.

 

illegal entry

 

a foreigner who does not have a valid entry visa or a valid entry certificate issued by the competent chinese authorities, or who has not entered the country through china’s territory at a designated port, or who has entered the territory of the people’s republic of china without being checked by a frontier inspection post, shall be deemed to have committed an offence.

in 2018, authorities punished 121,000 foreigners for illegally entering, staying or working in china, up 12 percent year-on-year, according to the beijing-based daily newspaper legal daily.

liu guofu, an immigration law expert at the beijing institute of technology, noted that regulation of illegal immigration was a problem shared throughout global society. 

 

 “such groups not only violated the country’s immigration laws but also pose a challenge to the labor, health and other departments who don’t know their whereabouts and situations,” liu told the global times on sunday. 

 

liu said that china imposed harsher penalties on illegal agencies that recruited foreigners than it did on the foreigners themselves. 

 

the foreigners usually receive administrative punishments only, but illegal immigration is regarded as a crime in many other countries,” he said. 

 

foreign expats who illegally enter, stay or work in china face 5-15 days administrative detention and a fine up to 10,000 yuan, according to china’s exit and entry administration law, which was implemented in 2013.

illegal foreign teachers are more prevalent in first-tier cities, liu noted, while illegal laborers are more seen in the delta areas around the yangtze and zhujiang rivers.

in august of 2018, a suspect surnamed liu was sentenced eight years in prison and fined 200,000 yuan by no. 1 intermediate people’s court of shanghai for helping foreigners enter china with travel visas and work illegally as housekeepers in cities including beijing, shanghai and chengdu in southwest china’s sichuan province, the xinhua news agency reported.

“illegal foreigners usually congregate at border and port areas, but some were heading inland with tightening checkups and residential crackdowns”, liu said.  

 

more than 950,000 foreign people are working in china and the country issued 336,000 work permits for foreigners last year, people’s daily reported on april 15.

market purchase trading mode

 

many foreigners doing business in china will choose to exchange foreign currency in the black market because the factories can’t provide fapiao (chinese invoices) and there is no way to export the goods overseas. for this reason, the government promoted the market to purchase in yiwu in 2016.

 

attention! you'll be arrested for illegal foreign exchange!

 

in order to solve the legality of export without an invoice, hacos also obtained the first batch of pilot enterprise qualifications in guangzhou in 2017. in 2018, more than 100 chinese and foreign customers purchased and exported through this mode.
