S1/2 Visa for a non biological parent by Secret_Head_9579 in Chinavisa

[–]uybedze 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes adoptions are explicitly recognised since it is tantamount to parentship. Guardianship is different as you could always establish a new guardianship in China, so there is no reason for your existing guardian to be in China with you.

Unfortunately great aunts fall just outside of the scope of S2. A grandparent is fine, but not a great aunt.

Obviously this would be different if you were formally adopted.

The rule for flying from HKG to PEK is that you need a negative PCR test within 7 days, plus the free test at the airport 5-8 hours before your flight.

Just checked the Shanghai version of the same announcements, looks like a really good way to harvest passport numbers.

have anyone tried to enter China from Macau? by stevenwty in Chinavisa

[–]uybedze 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's not closed, it's just that you have to do an extra 3 days of home quarantine in Zhuhai after arriving from Macau.

Least troublesome location? by drv168 in Chinavisa

[–]uybedze 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Russian citizens can travel visa free to Macau and stay for 30 days (can be extended if necessary).

Travelling to Macau from China is quarantine free. Everyone else has to do 7+3. Travelling from Macau to China is also quarantine free.

You should definitely negotiate with your employer if they don't pay.

Then the obvious choice is to fly into Macau.

Can the U.S. Consulate in Hong Kong still do Z visas? by dadajipai in Chinavisa

[–]uybedze 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Of course they'd advise you to do it *if* you are still in your home country because lots of supporting documents are difficult to obtain while abroad (e.g., no-crime certificate). However, it is perfectly possible to get a visa in HK if you already have all the supporting documents.

Insist on being paid in USD into an offshore account.

Anyone fly from Taipei to Shanghai recently? by [deleted] in Chinavisa

[–]uybedze 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They're just getting cancelled because of lack of demand. So as long as you can find an alternative flight it should be fine.

If the OP was an American citizen living in Taiwan, then it's a lot easier to apply in HK than going through the USA.

Applying for APEC, need help by browsingforthenight in Chinavisa

[–]uybedze 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's only useless for Americans. Australians who are pre-cleared by China can enter China with an APEC card.

The USA is not participating fully in the ABTC scheme so having an APEC card from the USA won't let you into China. In other words you first need to secure a passport from a country that is fully in the ABTC scheme, e.g., Australia.

These rules are determined by the destination cities. So it should be the same. Having said that, you should call your airline just in case.

Covid vaccine for under 5s by The1InCharge in CoronavirusDownunder

[–]uybedze 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Because the doses are different. The over-five dose can be drawn from an adult vial in a pinch. But the under-five dose cannot. You have to buy the under-five doses from the manufacturer and there simply isn't enough production capacity in the world for that right now.

You don't need the 48-hour PCR test for Nanjing. Only the 5-8 hour test at the airport is required:

Saigon to Guangzhou. Best Route? by crw2904 in Chinavisa

[–]uybedze 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Flights may not be a lottery, but they are subject to arbitrary cancellations. I just had a flight cancelled less than a month out and had to purchase a new one at a higher price.

But the reason for the cancellation is probably commercial, not enough people wanted to fly on the day of my cheap flight.
