Forums > Living in Kunming > Visa renewal impossible?

What the Entry and Exit Bureau tells you is true. Schools have not been giving correct information in some cases. It is certainly not the case that 'all foreigners have to leave China'.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Visa renewal impossible?

This is from the Dutch embassy in Beijing:

60 days extension automatically granted to foreigners staying in China, not applicable to foreigners staying outside of China. Foreigners with expiring residence permit can renew without penalty. Those outside if China will have to apply for a new visa.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Increased anti-foreigner sentiment?

We've received some reports from foreigners being randomly stopped by police, and incident where someone was refused on the subway. There have been a couple of incidents where foreigners were refused entry to a park or a mall. No issues with entry to xiao qus even though every xiao qu has a different level of control measures implemented: sometimes registering when coming or going, sometimes temperature checks, sometimes nothing.

It is not compulsory to produce a 'health certificate' so I would emphasize that when it happens, and report it here so we get an idea of how often this happens.

We will call the mayor hotline again if it becomes a regular occurrence but so far it's been limited to a few incidents.
