Forums > Living in Kunming > COVID 19 vaccine for foreigners

If "having to" leave the country amounts to being deported, I'm fairly certain that it goes to same category with the Chinese government paying the flight tickets in order to get the foreigner out of here. That is, they would pay to get you shot.

Under milder circumstances for the exit I don't know, but I suspect that having to leave the country will not allow one to get a jab any faster than foreigners here in general - unless one is in position of some added privileges.

Based on my experience, as long as the text content contains all the needed information in readable form, the form(at) is not so important.

But I do assume you'll be better off with a printout from Word or whatever, rather than hand-written...

For our company registration and subsequent administrative functions, we've had to prepare power of attorney documents on number of occasions, but I don't recall it ever requiring notarization or other official thing - and I believe it is notarization that you are looking for.

Self-written, signed and stamped A4, and our bank and other offices have been fine with it.

But perhaps your purpose for this is different, and it will require notarization - or even legalization elsewhere, if it is for international purpose.

For some personal documents that have required notarization, the office we have used is this:

At least my (foreign) insurance provider provides a "second opinion" service, which might be useful in some cases that don't necessarily require seeing in person.

In any case, if one has such insurance, might be worth to check what is their policy about vaccinating under special circumstances (such as heart conditions), or with the Chinese jab overall. In case there are complications, and you hope to be covered by the insurance.

Zh123:

In some countries the education for police officers is not much more than education of chengguan in China.

It is also that elsewhere it is the responsibility of said police to do what is outsourced to chengguan in China, and for comparative figures one could get more realistic picture by seeking sources with that keyword.

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.
