Asked by Mr. Russ(China)
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.
Answered by Mr.Charles
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.
Asked by Ms. Lily(USA)
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.
Answered by Mrs. Lorna(USA)
Yes, you can extend the duration of your visa at the Exit & Enter Department of Beijing Public Security Bureau before it expires.
Asked by Ms. Marja(AUSTRALIA)
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 :)
Answered by Mr. Mac
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.

In current situation, you had better apply for a China visa from your own country, but you can still have a try in Kazakstan if you have a residence permit there.

Hi, I'm a french and travelling in Malaysia now, is it possible for me to apply a chinese visa in Malaysia?

Sam, at present, I assume that it will be very hard to apply for a China visa in a third country. By the way, even if you get this visa, you cannot enter China now.

Extend S2 visa
My son is South african. His wife is Peruvian. His wife also has Italian residence. They married in China last year. They both have been in China since 2014. Their visa expired in february 2020 and had their visa extended in china. With the special situation around the world with covid 19 they need to stay in china longer. They were issued 1 month S2 visa but need to extend again. Is this possible because the extry exit in wuxi refuses

Loraine, if they did not overstay and the visa is still valid, they can get an automatic extension of two months.
