Q: Q visa problem

Hi

i have a short term two year Q visa. The maximum stay is 120 days each time. The first 120 days was no issue but the second 120 days I encountered a problem and couldn’t leave until 12 days over. My daughter became sick and I couldn’t leave until knowing she was ok and home. I tried to leave the country as soon as possible and once I got through to immigration there was obviously a problem. They told me to pay the maximum fine. I told them I couldn’t as I had just been paying hospital bills and it was too much for me. They then wouldn’t allow me to take the flight so I had to leave the airport and go back to my current city in Shandong. I am unsure as of the next steps I should take. Advice welcomed please and thank you.

You need to go to the main PSB station of where you got and picked up your visa or 2 year resident permit at and bring the bills and explain your case, all bills from the hospital will have dates to prove the case. That might work.

 

If we would had been friends at that time I would have been yelling you down saying: You gotta pay for a babysitter! China doesn't forgive late visa exits easily..

 

So as of now you are on day 12,13 or day 14 illegally in the country still with a fine of 5000 or 10,000 RMB waiting for you?

 

Its sad to say man, but if you can't get your case cleared at the PSB station where the visa's come from than I'm afriad you'll have to pay the fine and than you'll be banned 2 or 5 years from entering China, meaning you're 90% at being blacklisted if not already.

 

Go to the PSB and always remember China usually never forgives late exits.

The time just got away from me. I got the visa issued in London I haven’t been to a psb in the time I’ve been here as it’s only short term.

Foreigners need to understand that they're not in their home countries. Any civilized country would look at your evidence and then issue an exception based on family emergency. 

Follow Iron Man's advice and good luck.

 

Additional notes to anyone else living in China:

China is a country you work in not live in (unless you're wealthy) because BS like this will happen. And for all those with children, have good health insurance or go back to live in your home country, you don't want to end up in a situation where your kid needs serious medical care in China.

Understand what China is

I have to wait until I can get the money together before going to the psb. Once I get it, I will explain the situation, show them I tried to exit twice and I’ll pay the fine. Hopefully they cancel my current visa l, give me a short term visa and don’t blacklist me. Then I can go HK and get a new visa. That’s what I’m praying for.

So it's almost a month overstay by now? Dude, you need to get in front of this.

Obviously there is some issue with your wife or you would have gone with her to sort it out. The longer you leave it the worse the consequences. The last thing you want is to get slapped with a 5 year ban. Immigration authorities are not known for being understanding about overstays. I know money is tight but you should talk to a lawyer.

Methinks there is more to this story than is being told.

I have been thinking to apply for a new visa in Hong Kong but not yet decided, sounds like I wil have to go back to Australia. I have checked with all connections I have at the PSB and they say I am not on the blacklist.

Simple answer if he hasn't replied:

80% ~1. He solved it, he's fine and forgot to reply because he's doing the nasty to celebrate. Most people never reply to us if they solved it, if they failed they comeback to spill their guts and sadness here.

60% ~ 2. He's still working and gathering up money to buy his way out.

20% ~ 3. He's in immigration waiting deportation or has been fined & kicked out nicely.

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
