Extending Stay in China

 Good Samaritans are sharing their experience extending their stays in China. Many have emailed me that the below information has helped them a lot.reiI would also appreciate it if you can share your experience by emailing to shanghaiexitentry at gmail dot com. Verify that the below information is correct or let readers know that there has been a change or you had a unique case. Please provide context as well: visa type, single entry/multiple entries, date entered, etc. Thank you! (Note: I will not respond to emails with questions that can be asked on the Q&A forum.)

If you cannot extend your stay in China any longer and your home country is not safe to return to, you could consider this option.


Though most people should have used this benefit by now, there are still some whose one year visas(or those who managed to get a new visa outside of China after end of March and entered China but new visas) are about to expire, in which case, 60-day automatic extensions are still valid.

If none of the above information answered your question, you can check out our Q&A forum and search keywords to see if someone has already asked your question. If there are none, submit a new question!
