If you can (very difficult to get anything in writing from the PSB) it would be good for you to have a statement from the Yunnan Exit and Entry PSB saying that you had visited them to register the kids but your case could not be dealt with by them and they need to be registered in Qingdao. Anyway at least when you are in Qingdao you will know that if they suggest you register them in Kunming you will know that that is not an option.

I guess that the hot potato in this case is the police have not done their work and these three kids have not been registered and resident permits applied for. Of course it’s the parents who should have done this but it’s also the responsibility of the entry exit PSB and the local PSB where they were living to make sure the parents followed the law. I guess that the main problem now is which PSB office will being taking the responsibility for not doing their job properly.

But in the end it’s the exit entry PSB office that is the unit

to issue the resident permits to the 3 kids

to allow them to leave. So I would camp out there till they issue the permits.

@JanJal, yes a foreign couple I know did get married here, but that was around 2008 and it seems the rules changed since then

Is China allowing foreign couples to be married in China now? I thought the government isn't issuing marriage certificates to foreign couples?


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.
