Since China closed its borders to foreign visitors in 2020, the detailed entry and exit policies have been changed from time to time as the epidemic prevention and control status continues to vary both locally and abroad. It is necessary to keep track of the rules to develop time- and cost-effective plans.

Based on the latest policy changes and recent real-life inquiries, Ellen Yin, Manager of HR and Payroll Services, and Allan Xu, Senior Manager of Business Advisory Services from Dezan Shira & Associates, one of DUSA Members and a pan-Asia multidisciplinary FDI service firm, will provide a comprehensive interpretation of China's current entry and exit regulations and address the most concerned questions for expatriates and their employers in China.

They will also share insights for business owners who are seeking alternative plans under difficulties, with a special focus on China's "dormant company policy". 

The policy interpretations will focus on Suzhou area. The difference between SIP and SND will also be mentioned.
