Release Time:2018-12-07

This will give you a comprehensive explanation of its specific content, whether it is living abroad, work, study, or travel, are quite useful.

Take out a small book and write it down for a rainy day!

Any person who has Chinese nationality in accordance with the Nationality Law of the People's Republic of China may request consular protection from the Chinese Government. That is to say, both mainland residents and compatriots in Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan, as well as overseas Chinese settled abroad, temporary travelers, foreign students and migrant workers, are the objects of consular protection.

It should be noted that China does not recognize dual nationality of Chinese citizens.

Chinese citizens residing abroad who voluntarily join or acquire foreign nationality will automatically lose their Chinese nationality and thus no longer enjoy the right of consular protection of Chinese embassies and consulates abroad.

Therefore, even if you hold a Chinese passport when you go abroad and later acquire the nationality of the country of residence, you can not enjoy the consular protection of the Chinese embassies and consulates in the local area.

However, the small partners who are going through immigration procedures are still Chinese citizens before the completion of the procedures and the change of nationality, and they belong to the object of consular protection.

When major emergencies occur in the host country, counseling and necessary assistance shall be provided for evacuation from dangerous areas; when serving a sentence or being detained or arrested in a foreign country, visits may be made at the request of or with the consent of the party concerned; and when an accident occurs, victims may be assisted to inform their relatives of the accident or injury. In case of livelihood difficulties, the party concerned may be assisted in contacting domestic relatives and asking them to help solve the cost problem. If civil disputes, criminal cases or sudden illnesses occur with other people in the host country, the list of local lawyers, translators and doctors can be provided as a reference upon request, but the quality of service can not be guaranteed to meet the expectations of the parties.

If it is necessary to search for missing or missing relatives abroad, it may make a request on behalf of the relevant departments in the host country.

In accordance with Chinese laws and regulations, travel documents are issued, renewed and reissued for Chinese citizens abroad.

According to Chinese laws and regulations, travel certificates or certificates of return are issued for Chinese citizens who have lost or no travel documents.

According to China's laws and regulations and relevant international treaties, notarization of Chinese citizens or consular certification of documents to be sent to China by relevant local departments shall be conducted.

If it is not inconsistent with the laws and regulations of the host country, it is necessary to register marriages for Chinese citizens residing in the host country.

What are the convenient ways to obtain consular protection and assistance in case of difficulties?
