February 13, 2017 |

As one of the four pilot districts in Shanghai to issue work permits to foreigners, Putuo Employment Service Center has received phone calls from over 100 local employers, handled 16 applications, and issued 10 permits since January 1.

 Last year, the center received 1,407 visitors looking for information about alien work permit qualifications, averaging 117 per month, and more than 1,940 foreigners were employed in the district.

 Putuo began the trial of integrating foreign expert certificate and alien work permit last October at the request of the Shanghai Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs. The Putuo Employment Service Center provided staff training to ensure the success of the trial.
