Most local resident permit applications will require proof that you are a resident of the designated area. This can typically be established with documents such as:
Utility bills (e.g., water, electricity, gas) in your name and showing your local address.
Lease agreement or rental contract if you are renting a property.
Property tax bill or mortgage statement if you are a homeowner.
Driver's license or state-issued ID card with your local address.
You will likely need to provide a valid form of identification, such as:
Passport or national ID card.
Social security card.
You may be required to complete an application form provided by the local government or authorities. This form will typically ask for your personal information, contact details, and details about the specific permit you are applying for.
Some permits may require one or more recent passport-sized photos of yourself. These photos should meet specific size and format requirements, so check the guidelines provided with the application.
Some local resident permits may have associated fees. You may need to provide payment for the application, which can typically be in the form of cash, check, money order, or electronic payment, depending on the local government's payment methods.
Be aware that specific permits may have unique requirements. Always check the official website or contact the relevant local government department to confirm the exact documents and requirements for the specific permit you are applying for.
In China, the typical cities for non-local employees who need to apply for a work and residence permit or residence permit points, as well as transfer to Hukou, are Beijing and Shanghai.
