Forums > Living in Kunming > Healthcode QR no longer show booster shot days ou

My problem was that WeChat Pay app was using my old passport number, and my CoVid-test etc were linked to my current passport number.

To fix that I did same as others (written above I recall): uninstall WeChat Pay sub-app from WeChat, and then reinstall and register with the new passport number.

After that I got the shield - although nobody ever complained about lack of it before.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Many Condo complexes (小区) are giving Covid testing

I couldn't help recalling how the previous semester of kindergarten started by adjusting delivery and pick up times of the children to better suit regular daily routines of families (dinner times etc), and thus being better for overall development of the children and society as whole. I think I even mentioned about it on this forum.

Fast forward one week, and same kindergarten had observed that picking up children at this hour coincided with pickup times of neighboring primary school, causing traffic congestion. Citing scientific approach the pickup times were changed back to original.

Today at noon son's kindergarten informed that to cooperate with the epiemic prevention and control, everyone in household must get tested once every 48h this week. Which we promptly rushed to do, as ours was expiring.

Then at 7pm kindergarten informed that due to adjustment of epidemic preventation and control policy, tests are no longer needed at all.

If not needed for means of transport that's great for getting around, but what about various government offices or even entertainment venues at the destinations, any intel on those?

For example PSB Exit & Entry had 24h test requirement previously. Need to pick up passport this week so will find out.


No results found.


CoVid experiences possibly affecting this could could of course come from many perspectives.

For example, those who are or have been in urban lock-down, may appreciate the prospect of going out once it is over - opportunities which are perhaps different in Kunming/Yunnan, than somewhere else.

If the survey took place during or after lock-downs in China, people will acknowledge this and it would show in results more strongly than perhaps otherwise. Appreciating what the city or region can offer beside 12h work days and big bucks.

"Survey of Economic Life in China"

If this "economic" is to be taken as in affordability, then at least for me it is a major point.

If I speculate this from local perspective, last I checked the local average salary was below the monthly automatic 5000 RMB tax deduction, so average Kunming resident gets by without paying any income tax - in many other country I would probably feel satisfied if I see the city and society develop even without having to contribute to it myself by other means than my own consumption.

There isn't that much industry here, but the benefits of developing society keep trickling in anyway, and this curve (or imbalance or whatever you'd call it) will ultimately show in this kind of surveys, positively.

It is perhaps same in some more remote places, where some farmers can make a small fortune with modern technology to help them.

Also curious about when this survey was conducted - would CoVid experiences weigh in it, and how?

"Dogs raised outside the key management areas may not be brought in."

Curious how this regulation deals with people (foreigners or Chinese) who may want to move in Kunming and bring their pet dogs with...?

I'm curious whether the separate website for Lijiang means less Lijiang-specific content appearing on GoKunming. For me personally it would be double to effort to navigate two websites, which may be why I will not frequent on the Lijiang site.

So basically will the information on the two sites be mirrored so that those who only read GoKunming, may catch all/most of the content about Lijiang as well?

"support the website by making an account, asking questions in the forum, leaving reviews and using the classifieds section to find a job, sell your stuff or rent an apartment."

This (or rather what is not included in that list of to-dos) sums the criticism that I personally have toward the whole ordeal, and how GoKunming (out of no choice I understand) had to respond to it with rest of the nation.
Ask questions and increase revenue, but feel free to avoid discussing and, heaven forbid, debating anything.
