Why I’m not taking my passport with me when I leave china


Expatriates can’t get their passports issued with expatriating allowances in China.

That means they’re paying taxes and expatriated Chinese nationals have to pay for their travel expenses as well.

So if you’re a Chinese expatriant and want to get your passport issued with the accrual allowance, you’ll have to do it with a Chinese employer, but you’ll also have to travel overseas for the expatriator to do so.

And that means you’re also not eligible for the Cigna Expatriate Insurance Program, a program that’s supposed to help you make your way in China without a passport.
