HONG KONG (AFP) - China should be aware of the difficulties new visa restrictions could cause for businesses ahead of the Olympics, Australia's foreign minister said on Tuesday.

Thanks for this info. Next week I try to obtain more clarification from my Beijing source. If it is as mentioned by Australia's FM, then it is indeed severe and will have a long lasting effect.

Yeah, you quite right here. I think that it is reasonable to say that the visa regulations and nforcement in CHina were a tat too lax,to say the least.

Now things are, sort of, being done normal. We have a very apropiate expresion in Spanish for these type of situations: Siempre pagan justos por pecadores.

Hong Kong and GuangZhou are far from Beijing, period.  Laowai are laowai, period.  And if you think you are "safe" because you have been doing business with Chinese businesses or have relationships with Chinese citizens... it does NOT matter to the powers to be in Beijing.

The "Overseas Chinese" have a better relationship that any "stinking foreign laowai", because they are blood relations, period.

So, for all of those who have had dreams of making a new life in P.R. China, get your $#!+ packed and find another place to have your dreams.  And make sure that if you have a wife and kids - that they have another passport in their back pocket.

A lot of dreams can still be made true. As a matter of fact the Chinese Government is not "throwing" anyone out of China. Rules are rules and they need to be observed. If anybody wants to be living "legally" in China, well, just follow the rules and everything is going to be fine.

If an F visa doesn't work any longer, well, more than one will have to think of a way of LEGALLY registering hers or his activity or either getting a working permit. I don't see anyhting wrong about that. Actualy it was just about time this was implemented. Or were all those foreigners thinking they could just stay here "ad eternum" spending their money earned from factory and suppliers' comissions withot having to pay taxes?

I'm not sure why you over estimate the acceptance of overseas Chinese on foreign passports within China?  Is that because your wife is one. Wishful thinking perhaps?

Oh God no...  far from it (as far as my wife).  I am talking about <he who shall not be named> and the rest of the usual gang of forumites!

I do agree that foreigners who tool in the whole, I'll make China my permanent home thing, will be shown to be a touch naive.


Sorry - but the country does not have any officially post immigration process - that should be a hint.   LAOWAI GO HOME (eventually)!
