90 day tourist visa? I thought that under the new rules, 30 day day tourist visa could only be extended ONCE = 60 days. Can someone clarify the situation with tourist visas? Can they still be extended twice to allow 90 days? – or is there a 90 day version available from consulates? How have people got on with back-to-back visas? Exit China, get a new L-visa and enter China again. I expect they get pretty suspicious?

I spoke to a friend on a tourist visa this morning, and although the duration is 1-year, she has to exit China every 2 months which is a major restriction. I don’t think you can get tourist visas with anything longer than 60 or 90 day duration per stay. A tourist visa would work fine if you were near a bordering country, but not in Chengdu.
