    Abstract

    This paper presents the findings from an interpretative study of effective administration of overseas visitors in China. The study explores the Chinese administration system of overseas visitors particularly from the perspective of Chinese police officers. It employs an in-depth interview technique as the research method. The findings show that under the current administrative system, there are positive features, such as a high percentage of visa granted, regular policy amendments and improved quality of police officers in charge of overseas visitors. However, the following issues need to be addressed: complex formalities regarding visa issues; inefficiency of overseas visitors address registration; and insufficient professional information release channels for overseas visitors. The research results also suggest establishing an information system among ministries for better cooperation and communication. In addition, Chinese police officers need to raise their awareness of administration as well as service to overseas visitors. Finally, a model contributing to the effective administration of overseas visitors in China is presented. The study makes a contribution to establishing an effective administration system of overseas visitors in the Chinese context. It may also shed light on administration of overseas visitors for other countries facing similar challenges in the contemporary globalized context
