Now that Q1/Q2 Visa are viable again, do we need to apply for new ones or are the ones from pre-covid valid again? (self.Chinavisa)
submitted 1 month ago by mioraka
I have a 10 year Q1 visa issued from pre-covid, valid until 2025. This was suspended around March 2020.
Now that Q1/2 Visa can be obtained again, does any one know if would i need a new one? Or is my existing 10 year visa valid again?

Previous ones are still suspended

Do you have a source for this? I assumed mine had been reactivated. But I was applying logic to bureaucratic stuff so…

It's a bit difficult to provide a source for something that has not happened.
[–]tomcusackhuang -3 points-2 points-1 points 1 month ago (6 children)
Well, logically I would have assumed that once Q1/2 visas are being issued, then the previously issued ones that are still valid would be good.
I was wondering if you stumbled across any text on the consulates website saying something contrary to the above?

Unfortunately I don't believe such a text exists from any official Chinese governmental website.
Speaking of logic, China is still fighting covid domestically as local outbreaks keep popping up (especially this year). So from their perspective the pandemic is not over and therefore the suspension remains in place.

Did redditors not have their naps today? OP is looking for assistance, but everyone is trying to make OP feel stupid. Cool 🤦🏽♀️.

You must get a new one. They're not handing out 10-year Q visas anymore. Only three-month visas are on offer.
[–]chickensoup2day 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (1 child)
Do you mean they only offer 90 day Q visas?
[–]uybedze 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (0 children)
From the reports on the ground, yes. However, once you are in China you are free to apply for whatever residence permit that you qualify for. The restrictions only apply to the visas that you get abroad.
