Forums > Living in Kunming > Residence Permit - 2015 only

I have three married to Chinese friends who have this ten year card. It's more common in other cities and more people are applying so the waiting time for processing in Beijing is at least one year.

I have two friends who got the ten year card through working in Kunming. This way of applying is more difficult as there is a requirement for the position, time served and for the company itself. I don't qualify yet so I don't have one.

If you have been married for five years to a Chinese then you qualify for the card.

I am talking about the ten year 'permanent residence' permit. It's for people who live in China. It's a card with no sticker in your passport.

To keep it active you need to spend at least 90 days in China a year. You can live in country without having to exit.

Apply where your wife's hukou is.

On the radio they said that 'Yunnan was one of the, slightly,a little bit more by a bit, provinces for Aids cases.. But with one of the lowest populations in China and having the most cases maybe they should be a bit more direct about the issue.

When I called the Water company they told me that Yunlong supplied 40% of the cities water supply. She also told me that they were bringing in water from the east and west of Kunming. I think this issue will last longer than 15 days.

Maybe the police will ask for bigger and heavy guns to combat the more aggressive thieves. So instead of one bullet hitting a public bus it will be several.

Tasers are a much better option as the next step.



when we renovated we took our workmen to B&Q to select materials from their excellent range if samples. Then with that list in hand we went to the construction market near Mingbo bridge and got the same materials at either half or one third of the B&Q price.

It's a good place for window shopping.
