I came in to Shanghai earlier in April through an APEC card and I’ve already applied for a Stay Visa earlier in May. Is the stay visa eligible for a 60-days automatic extension?

yes, you’re still eligible because:

  • the Chinese government hasn’t made any changes to the 60-day automatic extension policy for foreigners
  • the Chinese government hasn’t announced that the pandemic period is over (and therefore the 60-day automatic extension is still available)
  • you haven’t used your 60-day automatic extension yet (which is a one-time deal for any visa type)
