Q: legalities, I left and came back in 4 days, unreported so far

what the hell is the point?  I did departure and arrival cards .. had my picture taken numerous times, both here and in Thailand (my destination)   ...  wife was/is angry that i did not report to the local police that I left, and as soon as I got back tells me I gotta report in to the local authorities.   what the hell for?  my RP is good, so I had a little vacation.

Do you need to submit a copy of the police register whatever it's called when applying for a visa renewal?

I remember in Qingdao it was needed.

 

If it's needed you'll be in trouble when they compare the old one to your last re-entry.

You must report the return to China, i.e. your city to cops in 24 hours because cops will have problems (if you don't report!) at your next RP extension.

 

You'll most likely stay in the same city and I didn't .... report return and moved to another city.

As cops in the new city told me, I should be required to return to the original city and ask for the 'return to China' claim certificate.

That happened 2-3 years ago, so rules on that might changed. Go and ask about it at the smallest police station in your city.

I was registered in the wrong neighborhood in my city for over 2 years, no one gave a damn at the time and also no problem when I corrected the situation just told them I recently moved.

 

You just got unlucky.

It's very easy in GZ. I copy new entry stamp when I return and send it to local PSB by Wechat. They send me photo of updated registration form within an hour. It's done.

It's very easy here in GZ. Send photo of recent entry stamp via Wechat to PSB. A short time later they send me a photo of the newly completed registration form via Wechat. When it's this easy, why take the risk of going unreported?

Just like everything else, it's one of those rules that seem to be enforced differently everywhere you go and depending on who you are and who you know.

 

I have heard of people been told they absolutely have to register when they return but their friends in the same city, working at a different school don't need to.

 

You should probably do it just to cover your ass.

I did do it, and it was painless. got the paper, but my wife has to go back with more Hukou stuff. Her Mother's ID card info, because we use her as the landlord. And I thought my internet connection was slow....the police station connection was really, really slow.

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
