Renewing UK Passport in Shanghai then acquiring Residence Permit for the new passport

Q & A ForumRenewing UK Passport in Shanghai then acquiring Residence Permit for the new passport
Andrew Moore Staff asked 1 year ago

I’m a UK citizen living & working in Shanghai. My UK passport is due to expire on 2020-Feb-10, therefore China Residence Permit is also valid until 2020-Feb-10.
I have holiday plans to be in the UK from 2019-Dec-07 till 2019-Dec-29.
If I look to renew my UK passport here in Shanghai during November, how quickly can a China Residence Permit be transferred into my new passport? i.e. I will need this in time for my 7th Dec trip to the UK, as when I re-enter China on 29th Dec, I presume I will need a China Residence Permit in my new passport?
