Penalties for illegal residence

Updated: 2019-06-10

When visas or residence certificates expire, the absence of residence registration or the expiration of residence registration is regarded as a violation of relevant Chinese laws and an illegal residence. According to the seriousness of the condition, the public security organ will impose severe penalties such as a warning, a fine of 500 to 10,000 yuan, detention or even deportation. Therefore, all students must always pay attention to their visa and accommodation registration to avoid unnecessary troubles.
