Visa office opens in Putuo

A NEW visa office was officially opened in Putuo District this morning – the fifth across the city for foreigners to extend or update their visas.

Shanghai Exit-Entry Administration Bureau has opened a branch at 1913 Daduhe Road near the Putuo District police bureau.

Guo Jianxin, director of Shanghai Exit-Entry Administration Bureau, said the opening of the Putuo visa office was one of the convenience campaigns that benefits local residents as well as foreign companies and residents.

"It will help the district to attract more investment and talented persons from overseas," Guo said.

So far more than 200 foreign companies have set up offices in Putuo, police say. The number of foreign residents in the district has surpassed 150,000 this year, 50 percent more than last year, of which 5,900 are long-term inhabitants.

The other four offices are 788 Gubei Road in Changning District and 39 Zhangjiang Road, 8 Huajing Road and 1500 Minsheng Road in Pudong.
