Re: China 3 month visa

I agree, it makes sense to apply in the country where you are living.

The backpackers, however, would have been applying for a tourist visa. Very different from a work one. I know dozens of people...

Re: China 3 month visa

As long as you fill out all the information correctly, there should be no problem for your passport to be posted out to you.
I am sure my first z visa was posted back to me. I was in the UK though.

Re: British Passport Expiry and China Residence Permit Renewal Conflict

Must be a really cushy job, working in an Embassy.
In China, they are open 23 hours per week, (half day Friday) and you now need to make an appointment, even just to speak to someone ! :blink:

Re: Vietnam gyms and beaches
