If You Hold an F Visa. PAY ATTENTIONFriday, March 7, 2008 22:26
A few weeks ago, I wrote the post Notice: Chinese F Visas Cannot Be Renewed Past Olympics, and apparently I was wrong.
Over the last 10 days or so, I have been fielding emails, Skypes, and phone calls from friends and readers about the pain in the butt that has become their extension process… and apparently the news is BAD.
In a couple of cases, U.S. citizens were told they would have to pay 2300 RMB for a 3 month visa (same price as a usual 1 year). A 1 year visa.. a whopping 14000RMB!
As for who to call. don’t bother with emoo. they will not even help U.S. citizens at this point. there was a comment posted by someone called leovisa on the previous post who works at http://www.cn-visa.com, and they seem to have the best information, the best deals, and I suggest you call and as for leovisa (please mention All Roads sent you).
that is all for now. As far as we can tell, this is Olympic related, and it you think about it.. there is some sense to this, but where I think the real problem will be is in the Expat familes… Dad/ Mom have work permit, trailing spouse + kids don’t…
