According to the Detailed Rules for the Implementation of the Law of the People's Republic of China on the Entry and Exit of Aliens, accommodation registration must be conducted at the police station where the residence is located within 24 hours after entry. If you fail to register for lodging in time in violation of regulations, the public security organ will impose a warning or a fine of less than 2,000 yuan according to law. International students who change passports, renew visas or change addresses must renew their accommodation registration within 10 days.

In addition, foreigners entering other provinces in China from Hong Kong, Taiwan and Macao also need to register at the police station where the residence is located within 24 hours.
