Q: Can anyone provide confirmation on Beijing Metro Line 6 becoming an "Express"?

There is some word of it; even some stations are set up with having an extra platform (two, really) that is currently not in use. 


However, I can't find confirmation of this in Engish. As well, I hope they don't change their minds as they do with subway station names...

From the Chinese-language version of the China Daily.  Indeed, yes, parts of it will become express-stops only and it will be the smaller stations that are skipped during morning and evening rush hours.


"Almost parallel to Subway Line 1, Beijing Subway Line 6 is a main artery crossing Beijing City from east to west. With a total length of 52 kilometers (32 miles), Line 6 is longer than any other line under operation or construction in Beijing. The construction of Line 6 is divided into three phases and the first phase has been completed. It runs from Haidian Wuluju in the west to Caofang in the east. Other sections from Wuzi University to Dongxiaoying and from Pingguoyuan to Tiancu are still under construction. It is said that all construction will be finished in 2015.

As planned, Line 6 is expected to have express sections. For instance, it will drop small stations in rush hours in order to reach the downtown area directly. The speed will reach as much as 80 to 100 kilometers per hour (40 to 62 miles per hour). This mode of transportation will be in operation after the implementation of phaseⅡ. At present, the line stops at all 20 stations."

A:My friends who are managing schools still can't recruit from outside of China because of the borders being closed, as far as I know that doesn't look like it's going to change anytime soon. If you have a current existing residence permit etc you can re-enter the country, going through the usual quarantine process obviously but no new visas are being issued. I don't know about business visas but I suspect it wouldn't be much different. For up to date info you could probably contact the Chinese embassy in your country. -- Stiggs
