Effective immediately, all work permit applicants in Xi’an must undergo an interview with the Xi’an Labor Authority. Upon entrance into Xi’an, applicants will undergo two interviews: one for their work permit application and another for their resident permit application. As of yet, the Labor Bureau has not indicated any specific questions that they may ask applicants. Companies and assignees should be aware of this new requirement and ensure that they arrange to have this personal filing appointment so as to avoid any delays in the application process.
