The Regulation on the Control of Foreigners' Entry and Exit (the Regulation) came into effect on 1 September 2013. The Regulation can be deemed as the implementing rules of the PRC Exit-Entry Administration Law. The Regulation includes some changes to visa classifications, modifications to visa extensions, medical report requirements and more clearly defines what constitutes illegal work and illegal stay in China.
