IMPACT – MEDIUM
What is the change? The Shanghai Labor Bureau is now waiving medical examination reports for work permit applicants from Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan if the sponsor companies guarantee the applicants’ health.
What does the change mean? Instead of submitting an employee’s medical report, an employer may submit a letter confirming that the employee’s health complies with relevant laws and he or she is able to perform the job.
BAL Analysis: The exemption from the medical examination report will speed up the work permit application process for employees from Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan working in Shanghai.
