The National Immigration Administration has rolled out an identity verification platform, which helps mainland public service departments and institutions provide efficient services.

From October, overseas Chinese nationals will be able to enjoy 35 public services using exit-entry permits via the platform, covering fields of transportation, finance, education, communication, healthcare and accommodation.

This is the latest effort made by the administration to promote the reform of internet-based government affairs.
