In this article we will only cover the case of renewing and altering a work permit with the same employer, in case you are looking for information on how to change employer please refer to our other article: Work Permit, Resident Permit, Change of Employer or City


Important Since the 28/02/2018 all renewal applications will have to be submitted 30 days before work permit expiry date on http://fwp.safea.gov.cn/. In case you miss that limit date, you will have to manually apply for a work permit. 


Some applications may need to be started from the scratch and may prevent you from renewing your work permit in time. This may lead to you needing to return home to complete. We strongly advise you to contact the professional HR services offered by our company if you find yourself in this case.


Try not to make a passport change, work permit change, work permit renewal and work permit update at the same time. All these procedures need to follow their own time-flow and changes can result in timing conflicts.
