Legal status for asylum seekers
    2012-07-03  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

    THE new Exit and Entry Administration Law will allow refugees to stay in China after obtaining an ID card from public security authorities. Asylum seekers will also be allowed to use a temporary ID card to stay in the country while their refugee status is under examination.

    China is now party to two international refugee pacts — the 1951 Convention and the 1967 Protocol. Even so, its Legislation Law states that international protocols will only be in force if they are written into domestic laws.

    The new law will fill a legal vacuum and is expected to give rise to more administrative and legislative provisions meant to protect the rights and safety of refugees in China, Liu Guofu, an immigrssation law expert at the Beijing Institute of Technology, told China Daily.

    Asylum seekers are often treated as illegal immigrants in China. Because they often flee their home countries in haste, their documents are incomplete and China has no legislative means of separating the management of refugees from regular foreign visitors, Liu said.
