Search for an agent for PRC work permits

(Partner search)


Our client, an international immigration consulting firm, had had an office in Hong Kong for several years, arranging work visas and residency permits for employees of multinational companies with Hong Kong offices.  It hoped to expand its service to offer its clients a seamless service, by setting up a relationship with a partner which could perform similar services for its clients in Mainland China.


Sinogie worked with the client to establish precisely the criteria which a potential partner would have to meet.  We conducted an initial round of research to establish the criteria which Chinese companies must meet in order to be allowed to offer visa services, and worked with the client to establish the additional requirements that the client had.  We then conducted extensive research, including searches of public databases, press reports, archives and directories, and narrowed down options for appropriate partners.


Through a combination of publicly-available material and in-depth interviews with potential partners, we drew up a shortlist of the three companies which best met our client’s criteria. 


Our client has since used this information to develop a partnership with a Shanghai-based firm.
