The US passport is better because it has a China visa already. Usually, it is easier to apply for the second time.

You can collect the required documents and submit them to the Chinese Embassy in Jordan. It's possible to do while you are working there.

Jordanian American living in Jordan wanting to learn more about living in china
I have not worked in over 20 yrs. My profession was Massage Therapy. I have made a good life in Jordan. However, I would like to live the rest of my life in a modern comfort and since China is leading in technology, I would like to learn more about possibility of becoming a resident in China. I do not seek employment. I like having the ability to live life without working. I've been living in Jordan since 2003 and have gotten used to the security provided to live in Jordan and love to have that ability of security standards in China. But would like to enjoy my life in modern comfort.
I grew up in Santa Barbara Ca, I love nature and small towns. I also drink alcohol. But, I do like to keep to my self. Living down here in Jordan, alcohol drinking is frowned upon; I do not go to shop or consume alcohol while in Jordan. Thus, I avoid such locations and social gatherings. I am a Muslim by faith and a pacifist by nature.
Plz let me know which location I could visit first on a 12 month visa if possible.

Well, if you don't have a family in China, and you don't want to study or work in China, it's not very likely to get a 12 month visa. China is a large country where you can find many locations meeting your requirements.
Answered by Tarik | Dec. 06, 2020 10:00

Thank you for responding. I did the research for 20 min and discovered Dali. I understand that no family and no work means no visa, but isn't travel a study of discovering the diversity of other people's societies and ways of life in its own study?
Answered by Ares | Dec. 06, 2020 23:27

But this is simply considered as Travel, not Study in the consular officers' eyes.
Answered by tarik | Dec. 12, 2020 10:23

understood, is it possible to get a multi-entry visa, for example, the 12 months one, on a long-term visa or would one be using the entry visa of the 10 days given to Jordanians at the airport? and is it still a 10-day visa given at the airport?
