Good Samaritan Case Study 5:

Stay permit application experience and cost

From Samaritan #5:

“The cost was 160RMB for an Irish passport.
documents i needed were: bank statement (in this case i used a screenshot) police registration, and the other 
documents that you mentioned.

I initially asked for a 30 day extension, the lady behind the counter offered me a 60day extension, so after rewriting my personal request for the extension, asking for the 60 days. I submitted everything and was issued the visa 7 days later.

The experience was very easy.

Hope this helps.”
