Hi there, I was just wondering if the 60 days automatic extension still active till now? I got my Chinese Q2 visa 190 days on September of 2020 to visit my father in China. I entered China on 15th September 2020 and I can stay till 14th March 2021. Was just wondering if I am eligible for the 60 days automatic extension or not? Or its better for me to extend my Q2 visa before it expired? I would want to stay in China atm since the Covid case in Indonesia my home country is rising day by day. 
 
Thank you

Hi Kevin,
You’ll need to visit an exit-entry bureau(aka public security bureau PSB) to apply for an extension on your Q2 visa.
I just told that during the early days of the pandemic, because cities were in lockdown, people were not able to visit a PSB. Now that the virus is more or less under control in China, you’re expected to apply for extensions on your visa at a PSB.
Good luck!
