Teachers traveling to Hong Kong for mainland China visa service should read this information in full.  Z-visas are good for thirty days of entry and your school must complete the formal residence permit applications once you have received the visa within 30 days following your arrival back to the mainland. 

Teachers arriving to Hong Kong on L or F visas should mind that they depart mainland China before their current visa expires.  Failure to depart mainland China before your visa expires will result in fines needing to be paid to the border agents in the sum of 500 RMB per day up to a maximum of 5,000 RMB.  There is usually no reduction in this fee. 



Effective as of April 28, 2008, same day visa issuance in Hong Kong, either through an agent, or directly at the Visa Office, is no longer available. The MINIMUM turn-around period for all visas is now 24 hours.

Additionally, whereas the "F" visa had been previously available to businessman on sponsored trips to the PRC, the "F" visa, as of April 28, 2008, has been basically suspended in its entirety.
