An autonomous prefecture in Northeast China's Jilin province has started a five-month campaign to crack down on illegal employment, overstaying and illegal entry of foreigners, said local authorities.

Bordering Russia on the east and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea to the south, Yanbian Korean autonomous prefecture plans to carry out the crackdown from May 15 to Oct 15, and the campaign aims to "eradicate roots of crimes and ensure social stability", said Li Yongxue, director of the exit-entry administration under the Yanbian public security bureau.

Examples of foreigners in Yanbian who will face visa scrutiny include senior citizens of the Republic of Korea who overstay their visa after visiting relatives in Yanbian as well as citizens of the ROK who have married a Chinese person and have brought their children to China without residence permits.
