How do I apply for a Visa extension once I am in China?

Visit any local Public Security Bureau seven days before the expiration date of your visa. Please be aware that you may not be granted an extension and plan accordingly.

You will need:

  • Valid passport and visa
  • A completed application form for visa extension
  • Evidence to support your extension (you can provide bank statements to show you have funds to continue your trip)
  • To make a payment for the Visa extension fee

We strongly advise not to overstay your visa or fail to apply for an extension before your visa expires as you risk being heavily fined.
