PRC Resident certificate (Zhong Hua Ren Min Gong He Guo Ju Min Sheng Fen Zheng)
Issued athority: Jinan Police Bureau Lixia Sub-Bureau
Valid date: **** to 20**
Citizen number: ************
So mainland Chinese identity car is not a Citizen certificate but only a living permit certificate of one city.
If Chinese need to live in another city for a month, he/she need to get the living permit certificte of another city.
It's reasonable that Chinese need to get different PRC resident certificates from the Police Bureau in different cities. (Lin Shi Ju Zhu Zheng) or (Zhong Hua Ren Min Gong He Guo Ju Min Sheng Fen Zheng) issued by the police Bureau in the city which you/re going to live in.
If anyone has a PRC citizen certificate, he/she probably doesn't need to get the different living permit certificates in different cities.
But .....What about the passport, a type of citizen certificate, oh...We also have to get the different living permit certificates in different cities.
Why do mainland Chinese need to get so many certificates, tens of certificates or thousands of certificates with type of stamps, in a life?
