Forums > Travel Yunnan > exit flights from china

It's not exactly a 30 day extension.

What they're doing is cancelling any existing visas (mine still had 5 years left) and replacing it with a new 30 day S2 visa.

That's going to fill up my passport with a lot of visas before I can actually get out.

When I was at the PSB on Monday I mentioned the restriction on international flights till October.

They were not aware of it.

The police officer on duty said we'll talk more on my next visit in 4 weeks to see if we can get something longer than 30 days.

If you go talk to the PSB right now you may be able to avoid any penalty because you couldn't go out if you wanted to.

I actually have no desire to go out, and Vietnam is not on my list of places to go, but their policy of not allowing something equivalent to landed immigrant status does force many of us to go out, then in, then out....

Thailand has extended their "state of emergency" till at least the end of June. They review it frequently.

They are only accepting a few repatriation flights at the moment.

The hotel sites I've checked in Thailand are also not taking reservations.

Vietnam appears to be opening up on the inside, but no way to get there.

If the China rule holds we'll be here for a while.

My biggest concern right now since they forced me to cancel my long term visa (with the 90 day exit) and take a 30 day S2 is that they will somehow start to permit me to exit but not re-enter.

"Friday May 22 update: The restrictions on international flights to and from China have been extended until at least October. This means in effect that foreign nationals cannot enter China, unless you are eligible for a rare exemption — diplomats etc."

Forums > Living in Kunming > Visa-Overstay Amnesty

I just read the update about international flights in/out of China on hold till at least October.

The government's decision to NOT grant extensions to those pesky 90 and 180 day stays is going to create a lot of extra and unnecessary work for the fine folks at the PSB.

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.


After 14 months in Kunming I've finally found a restaurant that knows how to cook a steak! The last time I had a decent steak was a year ago in Chang Sha.

We found My Favor because of the ad here on Go Kunming. I was not disappointed. The restaurant if very much "upscale", sharing the 6th floor of the Brilliant Plaza with other restaurants that it's Chinese, Japanese and Korean equals, so we've found a great place to go for special occasions.

Being non-smokers we really appreciated the separate no smoking room. The decor is quite elegant and the entire place is spotlessly clean (even polished where it should be).

We were given separate menus for food, beverages and deserts. There was enough selection to satisfy anybody but not so overwhelming that you couldn't decide what to have. The price range was also varied, ranging from modest to a lot.

I chose my always favorite beef tenderloin. Although the menu didn't state it, the dish was served with a choice of the five soups that were offered. My wife stuck with the pasta (she's a noodle nut).

The only downside came in the timing. Our soups arrived together, but my wife had finished her main course before mine arrived.

The serving staff did not hover over us but were quickly available when we wanted something, however, we were the only customers so I can't comment on what service might be like at busy times.

Overall I was very satisfied and might make this a place for a once a month treat.
