China Updates-Foreigners working in China

The requirement for foreigners working in China under a work permit to be enrolled in (and therefore contribute to) China’s social security system, which was effective 15th October, 2011, continues to be
introduced slowly by different cities.

Only Beijing and Chengdu have (as at 28th December) issued rules, and only Chengdu’s rules include citizens of Hong Kong, Taiwan and Macao. (This covers pension, medical, work-related injury, unemployment and maternity.) However, Beijing’s rules do not cover Hong Kong, etc. citizens but in practice the work injury programme will apply to such employees.

Some cities, such as Xiamen, Zhongshan and Yantai have started enforcing the rules, but Dalian has expressly stated that it will delay introducing the rules in order not to “frighten off” overseas investors.
