Refreshing old thread for new case.
In short: Chinese citizen with rural hukou flying from Kunming to Hong Kong.
So I booked tickets for the family (me as a foreigner, wife and son as Chinese), planning to fly from Kunming to Hong Kong for a week later in the spring.
No problems for me, and wife and son have already acquired Entry & Exit Permits for Hong Kong.
But now my wife chatted about the coming trip with some friends, and found that the type of permit she got is "L" (for tour groups), as opposed to "G" (for individual visits).
When she asked about this from the office in her hometown in Baoshan, Yunnan (place she got the permits from), they said that outside Kunming, only tour group permits can be issued. And not having Kunming hukou, that's where she must apply.
Since we are not travelling with tour group, she's now all stressed about whether she can go or not. She looked on baidu, and found conflicting information.
To further complicate things, she asked from Ctrip, where they said that she could only fly to Hong Kong from few select major cities (Kunming not included).
We next plan to go to Changshui Airport and ask at the service desk of the airline that we have tickets from. I assume they'd have final answer on whether we wil be able to board the plane.
Does anyone have experience on this matter?
EDIT: Wife corrected that for herself she could get the permit from Kunming (because she has temporary residence permit here), but our son does not have the final Kunming RP yet, so that's the problem - son's final permit will be ready 1 month after our scheduled trip, which is paid and non-refundable.
