Summary: If a foreigner was charged of criminal act, he may be deported from China according to laws of China.

Recently, I, being a lawyer from Tianjin Bozhuan Law Firm, defended for a client who is from Sri-Lanka. The person is accused of crime of theft. Fortunately, at last, we successfully got a non-prosecution decision from the Procuratorate of Heping District, Tianjin. But still she is facing the administrative penalty and whether she is allowed to stay in China or not, which means she may be deported. That’s why I’m writing this article to remind the expat in China of the deportation. According to the Law, in any of the following situations, one may be deported: 1. When he commits a crime and convicted, the law court could make a deportation decision, applied independently or in addition to the primary punishment. 2. In the circumstance of violation of laws seriously but where the act hasn’t constitute a crime, the Public Security Bureau may make an administrative penalty on him, including the deportation.
