Q: What happens if you lose your temporary residence slip?

Can you get a replacement or do you have to pay a fine? That little piece of paper is so easy to lose!

You just back to your local police station asap with your passport and a helpless smile on your face. They should print out a new one for you no problem.

Well, I've never had this little slip of paper. Just the resident permit in my passport. Could be because my employeer holds on to it. But, local police authorities will give you no problem. Would be nice of you to go and get a gift card with 100rmb on it. They will try not to accept it, but force it on them, it's the Chinese way. You'll be suprised just how fast they will help you without a fine.

This is an old thread but I have just come across it through a site link and it could equally be applicable to other people with a legal issue in future.

 

In reply to techezee's post, I am sure that giving a 100 rmb gift card to the police might be the Chinese way but I am not sure if it is either morally or legally correct. What if the police take it the wrong way and you end up looking at a much worse charge?

I misplaced mine sometime last year, the wife made a bigger deal about it than the people at the police station.

Nothing happens,  unless someone asks to see it.  I've never been asked to produce this paper for any random ID check.  I usually only need this paper when renewing my residence permit.  Also needed it for applying for my Chinese driving license.

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
