Please post official proof that Malipo is an international crossing. I haven't seen proof anywhere.

That doesn't exactly answer the question of whether or not the Malipo border crossing can be used by foreigners. You seem to imply yes, by stating that Jiangwu isn't Chinese, but we need more information here. Without accurate information people would be wasting their time traveling to this border by assuming it's international when it may not actually be. It's the same with the Jiangcheng/Ban Lanteuy crossing between Yunnan and Laos' Phongsali crossing, which is NOT an international crossing, despite claiming to be.
Aha, yes that document. No worries , I can easily get that document, which every foreigner on any visa type is supposed to get, which requres you to register your accommodation with the PSB. Normally I use documents supplied by my close Chinese friend stating I live with her family. Anyway, this is a minor issue because I can meet this requirement no matter what. The visa issue and other requirements is what I'm concerned about because that determines whether I'm eligible to renew or not.
My Chinese driver's licence (the 6 year version) is getting close to expiry, it will expire towards the end of this year. I believe I can extend it for 10 years after this. Does anyone know the procedure to do this?
Is it possible to extend the licence on a business visa or another type of visa that is not a residence permit? When I first got my licence I was still on a tourist visa and hadn't yet converted it to a student visa. This process was only completed after I got my licence and then later on I got an employment visa. However, this time I would be in China on a business visa.
Also, are any tests required or is renewal automatic? How far in advance can I renew the licence and how long after it's expiration do I have, without having to start the process again? Do I have to go to the licencing center in Kunming again or could I perhaps renew somewhere like Jinghong? Are Chinese licences now issued in plastic credit card sized format or are they still laminated like the one I was issued nearly 6 years ago?
Thanks for all your help.
There is a lot of back and forth irrelevant stuff on this thread. What I'd like to know is whether the Malipao crossing is an international crossing where foreigners who are NOT Chinese and NOT Vietnamese can cross here. Whether they need a visa or not depends on their nationality (most ASEAN nationals get a 30-day exemption while some select European and a handful of other nations such as Russia, South Korea, Japan and the USA get 15 days) and is such a minor issue that it's not worth discussing here because the same rules would apply here as at any other international border crossing of which there have so far only been 3 between China and Vietnam. I have not seen any official documents that prove that this crossing is international so perhaps the OP is Chinese?
