Here’s a question,

I went to get my residence permit (student) renewed here in Chengdu last week, it was no trouble, but it’s going to take 2+ weeks to get it back. Why is it that in Hong Kong you can get a visa next day?

Is it the difference in residence permit and Visa?

Also, does anyone have any experience with airport security using the little receipt slip they give at the Entry/Exit bureau? They assured me that if I had that slip and a copy of my passport it would be no problem, but I’m a little worried that they’re going to hassle me about it(last time I was in an airport I spent 10 minutes trying to explain that white people can grow facial hair and that I wasn’t the fresh faced high 17 year old in my passport picture anymore)
