I had lived and worked in China for a number of years, earning between 5000, and up to about 18000. Rented my own apartment, paid bills etc etc..

 

When I wanted to get an L visa to hang around for an extra 30 days, I needed to provide proof of being able to look after myself here (without breaking the law by working).

 

20,000RMB.

 

WTF???? When I was on 1/4 of that, I was able to survive! Why the hell would I need to have 20K now???

 

China is stupid!

There are these things called banks, they give you a visa debit card and you can withdraw money from an ATM. 

 

Which country you're from?

 

For example, I'm from USA , so Bank of America is the bank I chose before leaving because I did my homework and found that BOA allows no-fee withdrawals from China Construction bank

A:I'm prepared to give the guy some slack. He asked a few shifty questions in 2012 then went dormant for 5 years and suddenly appears asking newbie questions. A bit suss but who knows, he could just be a moron. Benefit of the doubt given.
