Q: Retiring in China

I have done some searching about retiring in China and have found some information saying that a 5 or 10 year visa are options but stuggling to find what the exact requirements are for either. Would appreciate it if anyone can point me in the right direction for the answers.

 

Thanks.

Hi icnif77, I had found the travelchinaguide links but not the others so thanks. Cant search the latest for a certain reason but unlike when I search for retiring in Thailand that gives visa options and info like a pension of a certain value being needed or funds needed to be in a bank account etc. frustrating(so far) I cant find this info for China.

See this one:

https://www.hrone.com/blog/residence-permit-foreigners-china/

It's a description of RP possibilities. I'd say, you should seek more info at your Embassy in China.

@Dragon

there is a reason there is an age limit on foreign employees in China:
China does not want retirees (unless you are super loaded)

China will be experianceing a demographic nightmare of their own making without adding non-wealthy foreigners in to the mix.

 

Have you asked your local Chinese embassy?
they should be your first port of call as they will have all the legal routes into China, and information on the appropriate visa - you will have to get a visa from them anyway.

 

good luck !

I was hoping that I could find the general information online than going or calling an embassy but thanks for your reply.

China doesn't offer retirement visas for foreigners. Only way you'll get to live there for retirement is having a Chinese spouse. 
 

I'm ignoring multi-entry business or tourist visas as they aren't currently a thing yet post Covid and that doesn't seem what you're looking for

Copy that and thank you.
