TechCrunch is reporting that China is working to make its visa payment system a bit more transparent, and is considering adding a new option for people to work as temporary employees for up to three years.
According to the publication, the company is working with the government to develop an “Internet of Payment” system that would allow the country to “reclassify” people’s visas in order to “allow them to earn a wage while working on a job.”
That means a temporary visa would become valid for three years while the company can process the payments.
The move would be similar to the one implemented by India.
We have to ask, would it be more profitable for the government or the visa companies to reclassify people’s visa for the same period of time?
The company’s proposal is being supported by Visa Bureau, a lobbying group representing the visa industry.
