Chinese Embassies and Consulates
Selected Questions and Answers:
I'm Canadian and have been married to a Chinese lady got two years. We got married and we now both live here. What is the procedure for me to qualify for a long term (5 year) permament visa if I plan to stay longer here? I have now been living here for more than four years.
It is very difficult to get a permanent visa. Please read the Regulations on Permanent Residence of Aliens on the website https://www.travelchinaguide.com/embassy/visa/refusal.htm, then you know the regulations are so strict and rigorous.
Hi, I'm a US passport holder. My 1 year Chinese Visa will expire soon, but I need to stay longer for another five days. I don't think I'll have time to renew it prior to my trip.
So my question here is, can I extend or renew it while in Beijing? I thank you in advance for your prompt response.
Yes, you can extend the duration of your visa at the Exit & Enter Department of Beijing Public Security Bureau before it expires.
I am a German passport holder with a working visa for Australia, wishing to travel soon - is it possible for me to obtain a visa from one of the consulates in Australia (or possibly new Zealand, as I may be traveling here in the next few months)?? Thanks :)
Yes, you can apply from one Chinese consulate in Australia which is near to you because you hold Australian work visa which permits you stay in Australia for a long time. If you apply in New Zealand, you maybe can't get it because you just a temporary visitors to New Zealand. Please bear in mind that single entry tourist L is only valid for 3 months, please don't apply for it too early.

I hope you can help me in the situation I am facing. I came to China with a tourist visa, double entry 30+30 days of stay.
I am an Italian citizen and I am currently on my second entry. I have around 3 weeks left.
In case I get some part-time jobs opportunities, how should I handle the visas? And in particular:
1. Is it possible to convert a tourist visa into a business visa while staying in China? How?
2. If yes, does the duration of stays and number of entries re-start the counting?
3. If no, what is the best option you suggest to handle this situation? Perhaps going to Hong Kong and applying for the visa there? One agency told me that I could have a hard time applying for a visa in HK in my situation.
But I would like to avoid going back to Italy.
I know that a working visa is the right solution, but unfortunately it is very hard to get.
Thank you since now for your help!
2. If you get a business visa, the duration of stays restart.
3. You can first try to convert the visa at the EEA. If you failed, you need to go to the HK or another country to apply for an M or Z visa.
Its been a few days since the last day of my notice and they still have not dicussed cancelling it or my work permit. Are they legally obliged to do this? And what if they refuse?
