The Country of China
Today’s People’s Republic of China is a mix of the old and the new. Despite being the fastest growing major economy in the world and the world’s largest exporter of electronic goods it is proud of its history which can be dated back as far as 2100BC with the Xia Dynasty.
Modern China is now a melting pot of nationalities, from tourists to permanent residents, many of whom have moved there thanks to their work in either the financial or technology sectors. There are several visa options for those relocating to China from the UK, from a standard tourist visa which is valid for 90 days through to a working visa, journalist visa and residency visa.
Removals to China
To be eligible to apply for a working or residency visa one needs to be able to prove that they are going to, or already have made a major financial investment in China and have at least three years records showing a good revenue stream. Permanent residency permits are given to those who have been offered a position of assistant general manager or higher or, for those working in education, as an assistant researcher or associate professor. Applicants must have been living in China for at least three years before a permanent residency permit can be issued.

China is a huge country, the second largest in the world, and there are many blossoming expat communities all across the nation. The three main expat communities however, can be found in Shanghai, Beijing and Guangzhou.
Shanghai can be daunting place for even the most experienced and worldly wise traveller. With over 23 million people residing there it is the most populated city in China, and indeed the world. It is home to the country’s main financial and industrial sectors. It is also one of the most forward thinking in terms of culture, with a vibrant arts and entertainment scene which has seen it referred to as The Paris of the East.
Beijing, the capital city of China, has a population of some 19 million and is the political, educational and cultural centre of the country. Steeped in history, Beijing is known for its opulent temples and palaces including the Forbidden City, the grand palace which was home to the emperors from the Qing and Ming dynasties. There are many world class museums in Beijing, including the National Art Museum of China, the Capital Museum and the Beijing Museum of Natural History.
Guangzhou, known historically Canton, is home to the national trading port and is one of the major transportation hubs in China. It has a population of 14 million, with half of the locals speaking Cantonese and the other half speaking Mandarin. Culturally Guangzhou is famed for its music, especially its opera and symphony orchestra.
