Visa expiring, not sure what to do

Hong Kong is in fact extending the 14-day quarantine rule for arrivals from the Mainland until July 7. Don't be surprised if there are further extensions as July 7 approaches. This is the new normal.

If an American gets the 60 days extension and needs another 30 days, will his/her 10 year travel visa gets cancelled?

You'll just have to head to your particular Exit-Entry Administration office and ask. Someone else here posted that the first 30-day extension after the automatic 60-days would not affect the visa, but that a second 30-day extension would cancel it. Whether that's a China-wide rule or just one person's experience at one office who knows at this stage. So better ask yourself directly. (Then post the answer you get here.)

As @ZhuoMing mentioned there are two different things happening here.


Extending your visa/residence permit is one of them.  Being given a "stay permit" 停留 is another... effectively a temporary visa (T-visa).

 

This is usually what the PSB will do when you cancel your visa/residence permit in-country (say, when you leave your job).  Typically they will give you a 30-day stay permit, say on "humanitarian grounds" 人道  so you have time to arrange to leave the country. 

 

So it's not necessarily that a second extension will cancel the visa, but rather that if the visa is cancelled, then you will get a 30-day stay permit to give you time to get your things together before you leave.  

So if you are offered a stay permit 停留 then it means your visa or residence permit is going to be cancelled.

But he's talking about the "travel visa" he gets as an American, the ten-year tourist visa, not a work or other residence visa/permit. Throwing all that into the mix just confuses the issue.

The point I was making was that if you are offered a stay permit, it means your visa is going to get cancelled.

In any case, those in that situation are probably just kicking the can down the road: the Chinese government will force you out sooner or later, at least once, and make you reapply for a visa, so plan accordingly because you will be going home at some point.

Interested to hear a follow up of this thread. Did you go home in the end, or manage to continue to secure a visa in China?
