Forums > Living in Kunming > Need help with kunming Passport related matter

I am confused about your post.

You were here 3 years ago.

How can anyone be a resident of any foreign country without a (Valid) passport from their home country?

Underage children must have a passport that is valid for 5 years. That passport must be renewed every 5 years until they are 18 at which time they will receive a 10 year passport.

The only time any person gives up their passport is when they become a citizen of a new country.

A lot of holes in your story - read your own previous posts before making new posts so you can get your story right.

Hi Goldie,

Do not know if you are still around but just wanted to ask - How is the 60 days renewal working out. I know it is difficult for you because you are with your family.

Question - Is Hong Kong still the best location for you to exit/enter or have you found a more convenient place for your family?



No results found.


What a catastrophe! Recently visited Nanning, Guangxi which also has a bike program. All the bikes are uniform in color (Orange) and there is 1 type of payment method. They are neatly placed in bike racks all over the city. They come in clusters of 20 and they are found at every subway station in groups of 20, 40, and 60 depending on location. There are cameras mounted on either side of the bike racks for safety and supervision. People can easily find the bike racks and use the bikes and return them to conveniently located bike racks in other parts of the city.

Kunming has 3 types of bikes and 3 types of payment. There are very few bike racks so there are no central locations to get a bike if you need them. I live at the edge of the city in a village and there are bikes scattered everywhere. The people here use them, drive them home and park the bike it in front of their door where no one else can use them. They now have their own private bikes that they can use and abuse and when it gets destroyed they just go get another one. The bike sits idle all day until that person (Temporary owner) is ready to use it again. Kunming should learn from the many other cities that use bikes and create a system that serves all. I am sure the companies who operate these bikes will lose a lot of money from this program.

I enjoy reading the articles on this site but what really drives me nuts is when the article does not clearly state where this place is located - a basic essential in writing - missing.

Village name is great - how about a county and a prefecture along with that.

Very annoying and NOT the first time.

1 - Once the image was published on Chinese social media the firestorm began, and continues unabated nearly two weeks later.

2 - although some more vocal microbloggers have called for a police investigation and arrests.

I can teach reading and comprehension for a small fee.



The new Visa office is located at 118 Tuo Dong Road. There is no number on the building yet so do not bother to look for it. There are 2 passport photo shops on either side of the building. The office is located directly in front of the Kunming Museum. The bus stop is named - Shi Bo Wu Guan - Bus 1, 62, 109, 117, 145, 213, A1 and K3 stop directly in front of the office. Foreigners need to go to the 3rd floor. The Tuo Dong Stadium is located to the right of the office while Baita Road is located to the left of the office.
