If the procedures or documents for a foreigner to apply for a residence permit or for the extension, renewal or reissue of a residence permit do not meet the provisions, the exit Entry Administration of the public security organ shall inform the applicant of the procedures to be performed and the supplemented and corrected application documents at one time.


If a foreigner holding a study residence certificate needs field work-study or internship at school, he shall, with the consent of his school, apply to the entry-exit administration of the public security organ for a residence permit with information such as the location and duration of work-study or internship. 

Foreigners holding study residence certificates whose residence permits are not annotated with the information specified in the preceding paragraph may not participate in field work-study or internship at school.


During the period when the passport or other international travel documents held by the applicant are received and stored for handling the documents, they may legally reside in China on the strength of the acceptance receipt.
