As promised, the agency have provided me with a fresh visa.
This time, it’s a z-visa…
The visa itself is only valid for 1 month and one entry. However, I can present these visa to the local government officials at the locality I’m staying in, and they will provide me with a Residents Permit.
A Chinese residents permit allows:
- Multiple entries.
- Residence for 12 months.
I have something known as Foreigner Residence Permit application. Other residence application permits include Permanent and Temporary Residence permit which last for 10 years and 6-12 months respectively.
