Q: My Chinese wife and visa to Hong Kong/Taiwan

My wife, who is Chinese, normally need a special visa to go to Hong Kong. I guess this is pretty similar for all Chinese.

Now she obtained residence visa in a third country, United Arab Emirates, and she said she read somewhere that when Chinese have a residence visa from a third country, they do not need a special passport/visa for Hong Kong.

Can anyone confirm this?

 

If anyone know the rules for visiting Taiwan without an approved tourist group, I am also interested in hearing about that.

She will be traveling together with me, a Danish citizen.

To confirm or deny your questions you will need to consult with the proper Immigration Authorities in Hong Kong or Taiwan.  

 

Makes no difference who she is married to, or whose country she has a residence visa of.  The fact is that she will travel under her Chinese Passport, not her residence visa.  

 

Chinese nationals can only enter Taiwan under two spoecific conditions.  As part of an officail delegation visiting Taiwan under previous approval, or as part of a tour gropu, and must stay with tour all the time.  There is NO OTHER WAY !

The passport will be what establishes her travel requirements. Having a third world countries prem. resident only means she can fly to that said country without a visa

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
