Suzhou's first residence permits for people from Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan issued in SIP


Suzhou government put an ordinance into effect on Sept 1 to issue residence permits to migrants from Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan. The first of the permits were issued on Sept 3 by SIP One-stop Service Center to Chen Xiaowen, a Taiwan-born woman living in Suzhou for 16 years, and her two children. Thus, they can enjoy basically the same privileges as the local citizens for administrative and public services.

"My husband and I are trying to apply for social insurance for our children. The permit will make it easier," Chen said.

According to the office staff, the permit grants the holders equal rights related to employment, social insurance and housing fund, and provides them with great convenience in acquiring a wide range of public services such as those concerning school education and healthcare. Besides, in most cases, it can be used as ID card for registration purpose.

It is reported that 20 offices across the city are offering services for eligible people to get the permit, and more will join in the move in the future.
