Are there any catches when it comes to getting a Z visa from another city but living in Kunming. Most of my work would be online so it makes little difference as to which city i am living in. I prefer kunming but i have a feeling there is a rule against doing this. Surely the residence permit must be in the same location as the employer? Or that not important?
E.g i have a work visa from Guangzhou. But i want to work and live in Kunming. Where should the residence permit be registered and id it allowed?
@janjal the 2 year visas offered to UK residents are business or tourist. In the past I had a work visa and therefore a residency permit so there was never an issue registering with thr PSB (which I am always called out on if I don't do it voluntarily, contrary to what other people have experienced)
I know the landlord doesn't care as they've got their money but does the PSB?. I should have made that clearer in the OP. Many apologies
I'm considering a two year visa for a uk citizen which would mean leaving the country every 3 months. Does anyone have any experience of renting an apartment on this visa? Does it make a difference? I prefer directly renting from the landlord.
I think the articles that have been spreading on social media websites do carry an element of xenophobia. Yes, irresponsible behavior from the two men, but how many kids have bought similar toy guns and done the same thing? I'm not sure, because it's generally not reported in the media, but I'm sure many have. It's fine that people were worried and it's good to see the police dealt with it in a responsible way but I can't see why it was reported by the media. Whoever wrote it should have been aware of the significance a meaningless story would take on once published. That day, I saw re-posts from sina weibo with extra pictures of dead gulls (presumably dying of natural causes or landing on electric wires and unconnected to teh foreigners).
Many foreigners re-posted the story with or without the dead gulls. Often the post was apologetic: 'we're not all evil', 'I'll hunt them down' etc.
I can't see how this doesn't send a message of xenophobia. Shouldn't we be condemning the articles as trashy and the overreaction to a poor joke as either a misjudgement or prejudice?
