Thanks for the feedback so far!
@JanJal: Not sure whether my presence would increase the profit of the business, but of course I would be visible to the customers. So I understand this could be a risk.
I know that there are some foreigners doing business (e.g. bars, restaurants, etc.) in Kunming. Do you maybe know what Visa category they are usually on?
Or to simplify the question: What Visa can I apply for if I want to run my own business in Kunming?
M Visa does not really seem suitable... Z Type (based on my understanding) also does not apply as non of the below can be provided:
- Foreigners Work Permit
- Registration Certificate of Resident Representative Offices of enterprises of foreign countries (regions)
- An approval document for commercial performances
- Invitation Letter to Foreigners for Offshore Petroleum Operations
