Immigration rules in shanghai visa changes a, b and c are changing significantly. Foreigners working in the mainland of the People’s Republic of China will be classified nationwide in categories A, B, or C from April 1, 2017. But from November 1, 2016, the new rules have already gradually been implemented on a pilot basis in several cities and provinces like Shanghai, Beijing, Tianjin and Guangdong. The new rules do not apply to the Hong Kong and Macao Special Administrative Regions, as well as to Taiwan, which all have their own legal systems.
