I’m on a French passport and came in to China on an L visa. My company (I teach English) has finally got all the paperwork together for me to go to Hong Kong and convert my L visa to a Z visa. From talks with other French friends I know that converting a visa in Hong Kong is not always possible for people on French passports. Guess we shouldn’t have talked to the da1a¡ 1ama that one time.
I’m basically trying to work out what the chances are of my being turned away at the Chinese consulate in Hong Kong, ie, not being able to come back and having to go back to Europe to get things sorted out.
Is anyone here on a French passport? Any idea whether I might be better going straight home rather than getting stuck in HK?
