Forums > Living in Kunming > Possible free 2 month visa extension

You need to talk to a supervisor.

That's the same answer they gave my wife on Saturday.

If you're just getting an extension to the exit date it's the local shop.

That's not the same thing as a totally expired visa.

Mine still have 5 years to go but it's the 90 day stay thing that's expiring.

Wow, got the extension to my exit date today.

It was a multi-part process:
Step 1 - Convince my wife that it's the local police station that do this, not the PSB downtown.

Once she read the article posted in the link earlier she was on side.

Step 2 - Walk across the road to the local police station.

They did not know about this extension, but my wife had the article open on her phone and it convinced them that had to do something - they just didn't know what.

Step 3 - Local police had to research what it was they needed to do and carry it out, which they did.

Step 4 - They produced a new registration form and asked me to sign there part.

I ALWAYS read the forms and sure enough they had not updated the exit date.

Pointed this out and they fixed it.

My new exit date is now May 23rd.

Step 5 - Since they don't give you a copy of the form with the date as recorded in their computer I took a photo for later use in case it's needed.

Thanks Alex and Tigertiger for the help, and especially for that web document.

Yet it's the local office that put the next required exit date into the computer system.

To be clear, my visa does not expire for another 5 years, so it's not a visa extension.

They can probably do this - but as Alexkmg pointed out, they often don't know how.

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.
