Q: L visa extension without leaving mainland

Hi, 

 

I know this question has been asked before but the situation might have changed. 

 

I work in Shanghai on Z visa now and would like to travel in China for a couple of months after completing my contract. 

Any chance to get a 2 months L visa here without going to HK? 

 

My company will switch my Z visa to 1 month L visa at the end of the contract. Will I be able to extend it in any city in China later? 

 

Thanks in advance.

Never heard off! But, you could maybe get right info at PSB.

 

30-days L (or 30-days extension of RP---that's new!) is granted, so your new employer have sufficient time to apply for new FEC, or FT can 'prepare' for leaving China (traveling).

 

I read somewhere, PSB (or Embassy) ask for 'show of sufficient funds', before they grant L.

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
