Expats urged to update info to avoid trouble

Foreigners working in Shanghai are reminded of renewing their information at their local police stations if they have changed jobs, said the Shanghai Exit-Entrance Administration Bureau today.

A foreigner, whose name is not revealed, was found using outdated materials to apply for an extension of his residence permit because he failed to update his job information within 10 days after he changed job last October.

Since he violated the relevant regulations, he had to apply for a new residence and employment permit.

The bureau said foreign workers have to get permits from the local labor and public security authorities in order to live in Shanghai. Once they changed their jobs, they had to renew personal information within 10 days to avoid complicated procedures later.
