Q: yet another visa question

Once my one year visa expires, can I apply and get another one here in China or must I exit and then re-apply in the USA.
Also, after I am married to a Chinese citizen I can appl for a 'family visa' which is good for 6 months. Must I apply for that also in my home country OR can I get it in China?

if you're married you can go to the local PSB and get a family visa (it's a visitors visa) it'll usually be a 1 year multi-entry "L" visa....

Njorod is correct but i want to add more.... for one year family visa u have to go under medical checkup and for 6 months visa u do not need plus u r not legal to work on L visa even you have chinese spouse as chinese immigration has not clear policy or let me say that they do not have any spouse visa policy in their law books which is really strange.

as per european law if u have a european spouse u can live and work in that country without restrication but this is not the case in china.

it is best that if u have chinese spouse try to do any business in china or open your own language school under your chinese spouse name.

best of luck

up to now many places still have laws on the books forbiding chinese nationals from co habitating with foreigners, so not havwing laws covering foreign spouses is not strange. 5000 years history if it worked 5000 years ago keep doing it now Puzzled

A:My friends who are managing schools still can't recruit from outside of China because of the borders being closed, as far as I know that doesn't look like it's going to change anytime soon. If you have a current existing residence permit etc you can re-enter the country, going through the usual quarantine process obviously but no new visas are being issued. I don't know about business visas but I suspect it wouldn't be much different. For up to date info you could probably contact the Chinese embassy in your country. -- Stiggs
