3. Q visa: For overseas Chinese traveling for family reunions, including Q1 and Q2.
4. R visa: For foreign workers whose skills are urgently needed by China.
5. S visa: For foreigners who come for family reunions, including S1 and S2.

The other six regular visa categories, such as C visa, D visa and Z visa will have no rules changing.

In addition, financial, educational, medical, and telecommunications institutions, when necessary, can verify foreigners’ identities with exit-entry management agencies of local public security organs.

The regulation also addresses illegal entry, residence, and employment. Foreigners staying beyond the period permitted by his or her visa or residence certificate will be deemed to be residing illegally.

Other behaviors which will also be considered illegal include remaining in China beyond the visas-fee period and moving beyond any areas to which his or her stay is restricted.
