Abstract: The Law of Exit and Entry Administration of China 2013 is the foremost law in international migration area in China, and the biggest overhaul of China's exit and entry administration law since 1985. This law not only regulates China's exit and entry administration, but also promotes China's foreign exchanges and opening to the outside world. This law has deficiencies resulting from insufficient consideration of lessons learned from migration laws in developed states and regions, the absence of full public discussion and exchange of views on the draft law, as well as insufficient consideration of the concerns of academics and individual stake holders.

Keywords: legislation impacts; legislation deficiencies; Law of Exit and Entry Administration; international migration; regulation implementation; China; migration laws; public discussion; immigration.
