Read the Chinese Embassy websites in your country and you will probably see that they are not issuing tourist visas right now.

You need to start from a job application and acceptance to get a work visa.

And then ........

I took everyone's advice and showed up at Calmette Hospital with just my receipt from the PSB and the residence permit from the local police station.

If you don't speak Chinese (like me), that residence paper is handy since it has your name, passport number, address and phone number.

Those are all things that got entered into the computer.

Also, if you don't speak Chinese (like me), having a translation app on your phone is useful.

Anyway, I have to say that Calmette was super organized.

They had lots of staff on hand.

Many, but not all, spoke decent English. There were quite a few people in for the shot but it didn't get lined up because they had the staff level to accommodate it.

It could be busier tomorrow with those folk who had to work for the past 3 days.

I'm getting more confused by the minute.

First we're told we must have a residence permit.

Then we're told they will refuse 1st shot if the RP expires before second shot date.

Now I see a post from 12345 getting the vaccine with just an S2 Visa, which does not have a residence permit.

Is it at all possible they'll give me the vaccine if I present a photo of my passport and the receipt from the PSB showing my passport and visa are in the shop for maintenance?

Had my first ever visit to Slice of Heaven last night for a group party. Barbara recognized me as a newcomer and immediately came to welcome me and introduce herself.

While speaking with her at the counter, a server walked past with a pizza for one table. The aroma immediately caught my attention. It was awesome.

Our group shared 4 different pizzas. All were amazing. I think the sauce really makes the difference since it was very flavourful. I also put back to cups of cappuccino. I guess they must have fixed problems noted in other reviews because I found it to be quite good.

If I lived closer I would be a regular here.
