外文标题：China mulls five-year visas to attract overseas talent
BEIJING: China plans to issue multiple-entry five year visas to attract high-skilled foreign professionals to broaden its technological base.
Foreign talent will soon be eligible for Chinese visas valid for up to five years, according to a draft regulation, official media here reported.
The draft was released by the legislative affairs office of the state council on Friday, and public opinion is being sought for a month.
It states that China will grant two new types of visa, R1 and R2, for foreign professionals. Both types will be granted to foreign talent and professionals at senior level that the country urgently needs, state-run China Daily reported.
A R1 visa will come with residency rights, while a R2 visa will allow multiple entry and exits.
Liu Guofu, an immigration law specialist at the Beijing Institute of Technology, said R1 visa holders can apply for a residence permit for up to five years, while a R2 visa will allow professionals to stay in China for 180 days at a time.
The regulation will be implemented under the Exit and Entry Administration Law, which takes effect in July.
Also China Ministry of Public Security is drawing up a draft regulation, under which foreigners who work in China for 10 consecutive years may be eligible for a "green card".
Visa holders should be experts recognized by provincial-level governments and above, and professionals that China urgently needs.
The new state council regulation does not specify groups that China urgently needs and which are eligible for " talent visas".

It is not China trying, it is a demand by foreigners in China. You don't how many Indian Medical Doctors are trained in China, and how many Indian businessmen living in China, do you? of course, they might not be the true Indians as you defined.

There are three reasons why people, talented or otherwise, will hesitate to settle down in China for as long as 5 years. 1. Lack of freedom, censored internet/ newspapers, etc. 2. Language problem 3. Heavy pollution in all of China's leading cities, e.g. Shanghai.

Why would any skilled worker seek Chinese green card where the individual freedom is brutally suppressed when there are other more robust green pastures available?? No twitter, no google, only communist imposed sick rules..Its like committing suicide going to work in China. China stinks & sucks!

"One has to be that stupid and foolish to accept a chinese working & residence visa" - Well, to begin with, you can check how many Indians are working/living in China. P.S.: Most of them don't want to go back and live in their own country. Then of course, there are those who value twitter more than mundane things like power, infra, system, transport & safety :

Fact Check: 1. At present far more Indians are living/working in China as compared to Pakistanis. 2. At present its much easier for Indians to get Chinese visa as compared to Pakistanis.

This is so sad. You should allow "Visa on Arrival" for your "All weather Friends". I am sure pakis will love to visit Xinjiang.
