Foreign Chinese doctors working in Shenzhen, who have worked in Shenzhen for at least one year and have actually resided in China for at least 6 months each year, may apply for permanent residence as foreigners. However, his/her doctoral degree needs to be certified by the Chinese Service Center for Scholarly Exchange(CSCSE)!
Last year, a foreign Chinese doctor, a client of GEI, who applied for permanent residence, and after submitting the academic qualification certified by the Chinese Embassy abroad for permanent residence, she was told that she needed to supplement her academic qualification to be certified by the CSCSE, and learned that the academic qualification certification for permanent residence would be required to do this certification from then on.
