Is there a website ( Chinese or otherwise ) that updates pertinent visa info for foreigners? Kinda hard to find with the exception of this great site, of course.
Thank you

Hey Chris,
Unfortunately I don’t know any site that you’re looking for..(if you do find one, please let me know) but the closest thing that I know is:
Below are some sources that would most likely announce / cover news on policies that affect foreigners.

  • Ministriy of foreign affairs‘ website:
  • Wechat official account: shanghaifabu 上海发布
  • Exit-entry bureau Wechat official account: shgacrj 上海公安出入境管理
  • [my favorite] Shanghai Unicom’s English Wechat official account: WOShanghai 
  • And other expat magazines / classifieds:,, etc…

Hope this helps.
