Tibetans granted temporary residency

About 110 Tibetan people who overstayed their visas will be granted temporary alien residence certificates early next year, the National Immigration Agency (NIA) said in a statement Monday.
According to the statement, the NIA decided to offer overstaying Tibetans temporary residence certificates after working with the Cabinet-level Mongolian and Tibetan Affairs Commission (MTAC) in helping them resolve their plight out of human rights consideration.
The NIA previously granted similar temporary residence permits to overstaying Thai and Myanmar students from the Golden Triangle who are descendants of former Kuomintang troops and have not been given citizenship of their respective countries of residence.
