Q: Overstay!! Can You help me?

Hi everybody. I overstayed my visa one day (actually few hours!). I crossed the border in Shenzhen to go to Hong Kong. They stopped me. I explained why i overstayed (cos i got some problems with the train), I also showed them the train ticket. But after 1 hour they let me go without saying anything. Now I'm still in Hong Kong and I just would like to know...if I go back to my country (Italy) n I will apply for visa to come back, they could reject it?! There will be any problem? Please help me!

If they did not give you a monetary fine, or asked you to sign any papers, you should have no worries.  I was late myself 23 minutes about 3 or 4 years ago and got two visas afterwards without a hitch

Just give them a Moon Cake with about 1000 rmb in it.  Everything will always be ok in China if you do this.

Only a problem if they give you a sticker/stamp in your passport that you overstayed.

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
