An one-stop online service platform for foreigner talents to apply for work residence permits went into operation in Sanya recently.

So far, a total of 11 foreign professionals have been issued with the work residence permits.

Prior to that, enterprises had to make at least two trips to related government departments – Sanya Municipal Bureau of Sci-Tech Industry and Information and Sanya Public Security Bureau – to obtain work residence permits for the foreign talents. The whole procedure took about one month.

Under the initiative, the one-stop online service platform provides a direct channel for applicants to access government authorities, which improves service and enhance work efficiency.

The measure is part of the city's efforts to promote the the international talent service management reform in the Hainan Free Trade Port.

In the next stop, to better serve foreign talents, Sanya will implement a more convenient entry and exit management policy in accordance with the requirements of the overall plan for the construction of Hainan Free Trade Port, further improving the integrated working mechanism and optimizing the approval process for work residence permits for foreign professionals and enterprises in Sanya.
