In order to further improve the issuance and inspection efficiency of foreigners' visas and residence permits, and increase the security features of certificates, the National Immigration Administration decided to issue the new version of three kinds of certificates, including foreigners' visas, group visas, and foreigner residence permits.

为进一步提升外国人签证和居留许可的签发査验效率,增强证件防伪性能,国家移民管理局决定启用新版外国人签证、团体签证和居留许可等3类证件。现就有关事项公告如下:

The exit and entry administration departments of national public security departments begin to issue the new version starting from June 1st, 2019. At the same time, the issuance of the current version of visa, special economic zone tourist visa, group visa and foreigner residence permit will be stopped. The tourist visa service of special economic zones is issued with the new version of visa.

The new version of the three types of visa will use a number of physical anti-counterfeiting technology. The new visa and residence permit for foreigners can be printed with color photos of the holders.

Application conditions, approval procedures, and inspection requirements for all types of supplementary documentation remain UNCHANGED. Previously issued visas and residence permits can continue to be used as normal up until the end of their validity period. Upon renewal or reapplication, the new visa/permit passport sticker shall be issued.

自2019年6月1日起,全国公安机关出人境管理部门开始签发新版外国人签证、团体签证和居留许可,同时停止签发现行版本签证、经济特区旅游签证、团体签证和外国人居留许可。经济特区旅游签证业务使用新版签证制作签发。

新版外国人签证、团体签证和居留许可为参照国际民航组织DOC9303机读旅行证件有关标准设计制作的贴纸式证件,采用多项物理防伪技术,新版签证和外国人居留许可增加打印持证人彩色相片。

新版外国人签证、团体签证和居留许可启用后,各类证件的申请条件和渠道审批程序和标准、收费项目和标准以及查验要求等均保持不变。此前签发的证件在有效期内可继续正常使用。
