Forums > Living in Kunming > re-registering with the PSB

It seems different PSBs implement their own foreigner managment system. While being in Kunming we have never told the PSB when we are leaving or coming back. A few years ago they would visit or call once a year to see who was still living in our place, or if someone who had registered in our place had left the police would call after their visa had expired to see if they were still living there.

When I lived in the north of China the local PSB was very active and I had to let them know if I had stayed overnight in any other city, also when I registered in that city the first time I had to prove with a plane ticket or a hotel bill that I had not been in the city for more than a day without registering,,very tough.

It may be that some PSBs in Kunming are getting tougher but it's easy to find out,,just ask them! if they want you to register each time you are back in town then just do it, most likely they will ask you only to renew your registration when you get a new passport or visa.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Divorce problem

You need to hire a lawyer in the city where you registered your marriage. Did you get divorced or not?

You need a lawyer to clarify your position and apply on your behalf for either proof of your divorce or to apply for divorce on your behalf.

If your wife doesn't agree to the divorce then its a tough road for you

Forums > Living in Kunming > Kunming Waterfalls, Just in TIme for Drought

The DianChi cleaning scheme is to divert huge amounts of water from areas such as Songming and to dilute the industrially polluted Dianchi water. No matter how succesful this works for Dianchi it will for sure mean water issues for the surrounding areas that are sucked dry to serve the provincial capital.

My guess is that Dianchi will need something more than a dillution before the water can be used.

If you were to go to court as a foreigner you would want to be in China on the correct visa, ie Entertainment visa for acting etc work. Otherwise the first thing the lawyers or judge would do is call the Visa PSB.


No results found.


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.


Accidental discharge of police gun kills man in Qujing area. The police arrived after lunch without uniforms and in a unplated van....but the report confirms the shooter had not been drinking.

A week or two ago the Zhaotong police killed a truck driver who was protesting against a land compensation case. Over 100 eyewitnesses signed a protest report saying the police did not need to shoot.

So giving guns to Yunnan police has gotten some fast results. If you go by the rapidly decreasing level of compentence and education of officials from central, provincial to county levels then I can only guess that police at the lower levels of the administration arent given much training before they are let loose on the streets with guns.

As a foreigner in China I heard its harder to adopt in China than if you live in Guowailand.

@HFCAMPO if the parents know which orphanage she stayed in before placement then she should visit it. Maybe some of the staff from that time are still there.



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.
