Forums > Living in Kunming > Other options to 30 day stay extensions?

I can only get the 30 day extensions from the PSB at a cost of 940 rmb per, and I have to submit a copy of no flights out.

I am a USA national with 10 year china mutli entry visa, but it's L category, so tourist class.

Anyone know of other options or cheaper options or longer options to get permits or extensions to stay in China?

I asked the PSB, and they said 30 days was max for my situation, and said I should go find a company to work for or get married to a local as options to stay in China longer.

Does this 160rmb stay permit from this article exist?

"13). The usual cost for a stay permit is RMB 160, but you do not have to pay until you pick it up."

I am assuming there is still very little chance of re-entering China if I leave, otherwise, I would do what I use to do and go to Hekou and cross into Vietnam and just re-enter.

Mine is the one for the Think UK complex.

It's on Remin Lu more or less directly south of Think UK. Sorry, I dont have a name or phone for it as I just visit in person usually or use their wechat channel.

I have forgotten to mention, that other than a new date of departure, nothing else was issued to me after I got the extension.

No reissue of the slip they tear off and stamp.

My office just gave me a new exit date and told me to remember it.

Quick suggestion.

The article tigertiger linked has an informational article linked in Chinese.

You could try again at your local registration office on Monday.

Show them the Chinese article.

I think with a little effort on their part, they can grant you the extension.

Whether they make that effort always varies from government office to office.

Also let them know another foreigner in WuHua district already got the 2 month extension granted at their local office.

Maybe that inspires them to look into it further also.

Here is the Chinese link.

With translation, around the middle of the article, there is paragraph that says:

"During the period of epidemic prevention and control, if the period of stay and stay of foreigners in China expires, it can be automatically postponed for 2 months. During the period of extension, there is no need to go through the extension procedure, and they can still stay in China legally or leave the country normally."

The rest of the q&a of the article isn't relevant, so ask them to find that paragraph.

@JanJal

I didn't go to the Tudong Lu Bureau, just to my local neighborhood registration office.

Alpage48 is correct that it's not a visa extension or renewal or adjustment to your visa of any sort, so my title is a bit misleading.

It's more like an additional 2 month duration of stay added to what's left on your current duration of stay.

I think if people read the forum the misleading title won't be an issue, but if tigertiger or any other moderator wishes to change or adjust the title of the thread, that'd be fine.

Any hotel in Kunming probably can, but as you venture out to the smaller cities of China, you will find that many hotels are not setup to register foreign guests. When you get very rural, it's actually easier to find lodging as many places then don't bother with registration. The rule is still on the books, but most big city hotels can comply now and most small village ones don't bother. It's 3rd tier non-tourist towns where you tend to encounter this issue.

Wow, only 13 businesses lost and zero death toll. That's the best bad news possible out of a fire in old town. It could of easily been 130 businesses and worst. The might of the Chinese populace. 1000 for the bucket brigade.

Most airports in China have the last shuttle bus depart when the last flight arrives. Whether they do this as a courtesy or it's a rule of law, I don't know. But it's very comforting.

The 28rmb salad bar buffet is the best meal to be had in Kunming for that price. Killer onion rings as part of that salad bar! Starts at 5pm Mon-Sat. They don't restock a dish if it runs out, but it's rarely an issue because there are so many others and no dish runs out unless you show up past 7'ish on a fri or sat.

Their steaks are Chinese steaks, and not a Western level of cut of meat, but the Korean dishes are excellent.

The only reason it's 4 and not 5 stars, is I live far away, and maybe the quality of the steak. Of course it was only 50rmb for a steak, potatoes, and a salad bar buffet included.

Oh yes, the staff are really nice, but it's not fine dining, so they don't rush to take your order or bring out water. The place is more relaxed, so give'em a hollar or just grab a menu and some silverware yourself.
