The Beijing Municipal Human Resources and Social Security Bureau announced Thursday that up to 60 percent of the foreign talent can apply for and complete their work documents in nearby districts instead of the city-level administration.
Those districts are Chaoyang, Haidian and Shunyi, where most foreign talent is located in the capital, according to the authority.
As increasing numbers of foreign talent come to Beijing to live and work, the capital has carried out a series of measures to provide more convenience for their work permits and other related documents.
Zhu Jinhua, a senior official at the business advisory firm PricewaterhouseCoopers China, said Beijing's policy on talent visas is very friendly with high efficiency.
"It usually takes two to three working days to complete the visa for talent, which has shown a megacity's high service level," he said.
