Re: renewal of Chinese visa
I have been in China for fours years: tourist, F, and now Z category visas.
Now, they tell me I'm too old (70) to renew Z visa (don't care as never worked). They also told me I have to depart China.
Question: Possible, with the proper documents, to get 6-months tourist visa (in Vientiane) -- this to return to China. And if so, how long and how much?
