 Answer: It is advised to apply for a visa extension with ample time to spare before your current visa expires. Overstaying your visa's duration may be considered an illegal residence and could lead to a fine, imprisonment or deportation. However, in exceptional circumstances, one should apply for visa extension in advance of the visa's expiration date. To extend your Visa in China, you need appropriate reasons and relevant documents, please read Visa Extension for all the details.

  What if I feel faint, lose my appetite or suffer from insomnia during my visit?

 Answer: Don't worry! These are common symptoms for people travelling abroad. Tablets like Vitamin B2 and Multienzyme Tablet may help. Remember to eat more fruit and avoid overly fatty food. Whenever you feel uncomfortable or short of breath, please stop trekking and have a rest in the shade and drink some cool fluids. If you are stricken with a serious illness, ask the local hospital or a doctor for help. In China, the free first-aid number is 120.
