Shanghai will launch a "green passage" for non-Shanghai graduates from Peking and Tsinghua universities to apply for city residency, or hukou, through Dec。 31, according to a newly released regulation.
Shanghai authorities made public their latest regulation on Aug 3, stating the city will explore a green passage mechanism to bring in graduates from high-level universities, using Peking and Tsinghua for the pilot program.
The city has a points system for non-Shanghai students to apply for the city's hukou, measuring kinds of conditions of the graduates, and the lowest score should be 72.
According to the regulation, graduates still have to meet standards set by the city, but the application period was extended to Dec 31. The previous application period ended on June 15.
