Forums > Living in Kunming > Anyone here gotten a Chinese Green Card?

Just dropping in to say that I received a five year residence permit yesterday.

I've been on one year residence permits as owner/manager of my own small firm for many years now.

The entire application was done in-province. The only difference from a normal one year permit was that I had to do a new health check, and I had to get a local criminal record check covering my time in China.

That's another route worth considering. Simpler and quicker than the permanent residence permit, and most who qualify for that should be able to qualify for this one.

I take that back. Changshui Airport is saying to come four hours ahead. When people were first saying that a week ago, it was actually being refuted by multiple official accounts. Looks like it's policy now.

@AlPage48: That was never actually a real requirement. It was just something that spread on social media. People who followed that ended up waiting two hours for the check-in counters to open.

I would recommend showing up a little earlier than usual, but not that much.

@pideh390: That's not so clear cut. In the announcement of the extended break, there's just one line saying "employers must ensure the legal rights of their employees." It doesn't actually state what those rights are. I believe it is mainly to remind employers that they'll still be held to labor laws regarding arbitrary termination or being forced to work during weekends or holidays (each of which has different pay requirements).

@Ishmael: My impression was that the Bai of Heqing were the builders, making houses in a variety of minority styles all over western Yunnan, and Jianchuan was home to the carpenters who made the best window screens and eaves decorations.

Excellent Thai food served in a beautiful art deco setting. The bar is also top notch, with great cocktails, whiskys and cigars.

When the weather is good, try to get a table on the rooftop garden, which offers views of the Bird and Flower market.

May be a little pricier than some of the other Thai restaurants in town.

An exciting new gallery space built from an old factory warehouse in the Paoluda Creative Industry Park. Looking forward to seeing what they'll do with it.

A great little place in the middle of a beautiful valley chock full of great climbing spots.

The beds and rooms are very comfortable, though the bathrooms are shared, and of the "eco" variety (a plus as far as I'm concerned).

The owners are very helpful about everything from info on climbing spots to trip planning and getting around the area.

Also, the place is dirt cheap. I wholeheartedly recommend it.

I heard they revamped the burgers so I went there for one last night. Had the blue cheese burger. Total mess, cheese and carmelized onions dripping all over the place. It was awesome.
