Overseas personnel's temporary driving permit in Hainan extended to a maximum of 1 year

On July 3, based on the press conference held by the Ministry of Public Security, it was learned that in order to further facilitate the travel of overseas personnel in Hainan, the Ministry of Public Security launches three policies for facilitating the entry of foreigners and Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan district residents in Hainan pilot area. It implements differentiated and convenient measures to meet the different needs of overseas personnel for tourism, work and life in Hainan.

The first policy is about to relax the conditions for applying for a temporary driving permit. For foreigners who have stayed in Hainan for short periods of time such as tourism, business trip, and family visits, they can apply for a temporary driving license for small cars with a maximum validity of up to 3 months by holding an entry-exit ID card or an overseas motor vehicle driving license. It is more convenient to apply for a temporary driving permit without the necessity to the hospital for physical condition examination.

The second is to extend the period of use of temporary driving permits. For overseas personnel who have stayed in Hainan for more than 3 months, if they apply for a temporary driving permit for a small automobile with an overseas motor vehicle driving license, the validity period will be extended from a maximum of 3 months to a maximum of 1 year (under the condition of not exceeding the validity period of the visa). It is not necessary to re-apply for re-entry within the validity period. And it facilitates foreigners' long-term work, study and living in Hainan.

The third is to provide convenient traffic service system. The establishment of traffic service stations at airports, ports and other sites of entry will facilitate foreigners to apply for temporary driving permits. At the same time, it will actively implement new services such as online appointment application and online studying for overseas personnel to understand traffic laws and regulations. In addition, for the application for a formal driving license, English, French and other multilingual theory examinations will be provided, which effectively facilitates the examination and certification of overseas personnel.

These three measures will be piloted in Hainan from August 1 this year. Next step, the Ministry of Public Security will strengthen the guidance to the Hainan Public Security Traffic Control Department, implement various convenience measures, strengthen the publicity, and standardize the law enforcement on the road. It will not only facilitate the entry of foreigners to drive in Hainan, but also ensure that road traffic is safe, smooth and orderly.
