China’s National Immigration Administration (NIA) will launch new services, such as online appointments and inquiries for foreigners’ visas and other relevant documents, on its service platform starting October 9.
The platform’s new service menu would feature online appointments for applications for individual visas and other documents.
It would offer online inquiries about the progress of the issuance of individual visas and other documents and China-issued foreign permanent resident identity cards.
It would also feature online inquiries about the passport information of foreigners with permanent residence status, online service guidance, and assistance for service users’ relatives or friends on their behalf, said the NIA. (Xinhua/NAN)
