Q: Will entry to Taiwan affect my China Foreign Resident Permit?

We're planning on a brief trip to the Matsu Islands in Taiwan during the Golden Week break, possibly for four nights. These islands are a 90 minute ferry crossing from Fuzhou, Fujian Province. We are a family travelling on  British passports with China Foreign Resident Permits. Are we likely to encounter any problems in leaving or re-entering China or when renewing our resident permits?

You're worrying too much. It's not like going to Israel & then the nearby Arabic countries.

Nope. You are ok.

A few UK mates of mine do regular business trips to the other China. And they have chinese RPs.

The real hell for you will be golden week in Taiwan, when you discover that 7 million mainland chinese have decided to go at the same time as you Smile

Thinking more, one of my mates lived on the other China, got married to another Chinese, and then moved to this China, with his wife. No problem.... till he went back to the UK.

Wouldn't that be hilarious though???

 

Talk of "One China"... and then have grief returning to the mainland...

 

I regularly did the trip to Jinmen Dao (also part of Taiwan, but only 30 min ferry), off Xiamen.. no problems at either end.

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
