Q: Getting a new F visa or extend my current visa?

Hi good people on this amazing website.

This is my first very own question asked to you guys:

I'm now in Guangzhou, my visa (F visa) will expire on 26/02. And I got approved to study in university here, the registration at the university office is between 25/02-01/03.

 

So I got 1 day before my visa expire? Is that enough? Or should I go to HK and get a new F visa (then it would be my first run to HK), or go to a PSB and extend my visa further 1 month?

 

Thanks in advance for the help.

Why don't you go and ask at University? They will handle your new Visa, and I am sure they know, if it is enough time on your present Visa to make an extension (new Visa) in China.

Forgive me but I thought F visa was for business not to study

maybe you should double check which one you need before going near PSB

F-visa also applied for any period of study less than or equal to 180 days. I know this because before I earned my PhD back in the states, I sometimes did research and minor study in mainland China. Just go to the school and ask for an extension. You can go to the HK offices with an invitation letter for a new F or X visa and get it very easily if from a reputable university.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
