The exit-entry departments of China's public security authorities will start issuing new versions of visas and residence permits for foreigners from Saturday.
Bureaus of exit and entry administration across the country will in the meantime stop issuing the current versions of the foreigner visa, tourist visa to special economic zone, group visa and residence permit, the National Immigration Administration (NIA) said on Friday.
The new design features an adjusted layout, column setting and machine-readable code, while the new foreigner visa and residence permit cards will also feature a colour profile picture of the holder, China Daily reported.
Application requirements, processes, standards, charging items and inspections remain unchanged, and previously issued visas remain valid, according to the administration.
