The Fujian Public Security Bureau (PSB) Foreign NGO Management Office, along with the Fujian Digital Department, has sped up the groundwork for establishing a “Digital Fujian.” This process of digitization includes the transition to digital certifications for foreign NGOs operating in Fujian. The Public Security Department aims to issue 10 foreign NGO registration certificates before October, and to issue digital versions on a same-day basis. Starting February 15, representatives from foreign NGOs in Fujian are no longer required to provide paper certificates or paper copies of their certificates. Representatives can inquire with relevant departments regarding the necessary materials to obtain a digital certificate.
