    Hey I have resident permit valid until 31 August, and I booked flight arriving the 31 august at 15H, I have no problme entering china ?

    • Gina :2013/8/29 18:07:00

      no, there's no problem for you to enter China on that day, but there will be problem if you are going to stay for a few more days. Since your resident permit has already expired then, you will overstay in China.

    Hey, i'm canadian and i extended my visa at the beginning of april. I went to pick it up today and I checked my visa and they only extended it for 10 days instead of 30. The man at the office never said anything about only giving me 10 days. My visa expires tomorrow. I was told to go back to the office on monday morning. I wanted to go to hong kong tomorrow but my visa will be expired. What should i do?

Already one time I extend my Visa.My present visa (F type) is issued from Shanghai 6 months double entry with there is no limitation of period of stay in China and it will be valid up to 29th April-2013.Can I get another extension or new visa from Shanghai without exit China. If yes then where can I apply and how longer duration Visa I can get. If not from Shanghai Chinese embassy then where can I get new visa or extension. Thanks & Regards, Appadurai S

    • Nancy :2013/4/15 20:04:00

      you can try to extend it at the place where you extended the last time.you'd better to consult the local Exit and Entry department in advance to see if you can extend it for the second time, as i heard that some one mentioned he could only extend his visa for two times. if you can not extend it, you can apply a new visa in hong kong.

    Hi there - I am an Australian who arrived in Qingdao last week on a double entry L visa valid for 6 months with 30 days' stay per visit. Is it possible to extend my first visit for another 30 days before I do my exit? My husband is working in Qingdao right now hence the reason I am here. He only just started his contract & his residence permit is still being processed. Thank you & regards,Rowena

    I have a 180 day F visa multiple entry. Does the 180 days count from the first entering into China or is the expiration day of the visa the limitation.

    • Vic :2013/3/8 19:09:00

      it counts from the first entering into China.

    Hi Asif,I am in mainland China an L-Visa, 30 day duration, multiple entry. My visa expires today and I am travelling to Hong Kong tonight for one night and then flying back to Shanghai. Since I will be leaving mainland China and going to Hong Kong, will I be able to re enter China and have my 30 day duration start over. ie. First came Jan 10th, visa expires Feb. 10th. Fly to Hong Kong Feb 10th, re enter Shanghai Feb. 11th. Thank you!

    • May :2013/2/16 2:00:00

      if the validity of your visa is 30 days, then you can not reenter China, as it would expire before that, even though you only enter for once. if the 30 day is the "Duration of each stay", there will be no problem.

    Hi, I'm a US citizen and currently staying in China visiting relatives on a 30 day visa, I'd like to stay longer to spend time with my family, how many times can I extend my visa? and how long is each extension? What is the cost of each extension? I was born in China and had a Chinese passport before but now I am an American citizen with a US passport.

    • Emma :2013/2/16 1:53:00

      1. at most two times.2. not longer than 3 months for each extension.3. the cost is about CNY 900.

    hi, i had confuse about date of period of stay for my parent Visa. My parent will enter Malaysia on 26JAN 2013 and will go back china on 25 FEB 2013. I not realised that in month January got 31days. As i know China visa only can stay in Malaysia for 30days only. So my question is , which day i should start to count ? Start count from 26 Jan enter date is ( 31days) or 27 jan ( 30days) ?? Or 26 JAN 2013 stay untill 25 FEB 2013 wont have any problem? Is there anyway you can clarify this for me as I want to get it sorted in your experience . Thanks

    • Eva :2013/1/28 18:24:00

      i know usually the period of stay of Chinese visa starts to count from the day you arrive, that is to say your parent must live Malaysia on 24 Feb., 2013. but i'm not sure what the situation in Malaysia, so you may consult the Malaysia Immigration Department.

    I have a resident permit which was issued in Jilin Province but it going to expire on the 15th of Feb . I am wanting to extend it to a tourist visa but I am in another province which is far away from Jilin Province. Is it possible for me to extend it in the city that I am in now or do I have to extend it in the ciy that the permit was issued?

    • Emma :2013/1/28 18:14:00

      Should there be any alternations to the contents of the residence permits (name, nationality, occupation or identity, address, passport number, children), you shall register, within 10 days, the changes at the Division of Exit-Entry Administration of Public Security Bureau. did you do that when you moved out of Jilin? if not, you need to go back to Jilin to have your permit extended.

    My girlfriend is on a 3 month work visa in china she is from the phillippenes it does not say on the visa if it's single double or multi.would she be able to travel outside china with this visa and re-enter without any issues

    • Bill :2013/1/17 19:11:00

      the work visa is usually with a single entry, valid for 3 months and with no duration of stay(that is 000 day of stay). Holders of work visa should go through the formalities for a residence permit at a local public security bureau within 30 days after entry into China, to avoid illegal stay in China. The period of validity of the residence permit is its holder's duration of stay in China.with the residence permit (temperary), she can travel outside of China and en-enter China without any issues.

    Hi, I am an American citizen currently in Vietnam. I got a 20 day L visa while in Vietnam, but I already had plans for staying in china for 30 days. The travel agency told me this is ok and I just need to apply for an extension while in China after staying there for 15 days. Is this true? Would we have to pay for the extension?

    • Babara :2012/11/13 18:02:00

      yes, it is ok. and you need to pay CNY 1,500 for one extension.
