Get a Chinese #Visa in #Seoul

7 Jul

china L visa에 대한 이미지 검색결과

Lived in China for 3 years, but there is still so much we haven’t seen!  So we were planning a tourism trip around some famous spots, but our Residence Permits expired in early July, leaving us no time.  

We ended up booking a last minute trip to Seoul, South Korea (beautiful city and country! Definitely recommend a visit.) in order to leave before our visas ran out and needed to get new tourist visas to go do our travel plans. But I had a pain in the neck time figuring out if I could actually GET a Chinese visa in Seoul.   

A couple websites told me that only certain embassies offered it.  Other sites said I had to have an ARC (Korean Alien Resident Card).  Since those cards are only give to foreign residents, that was kind of a blow for me.  (THIS IS ACTUALLY NOT TRUE — SEE BELOW).  I did learn from a few people that having a Chinese visa in the past could help.  

I decided to run with it and here is the step-by-step process I used for getting a Chinese Tourist Visa (L Visa) in Seoul!

SPECIAL NOTES:

1) Many “copies” are needed in this process (passport copies, visa copies, etc).  Black & White were acceptable. My hotel didn’t have a printer, so I went to a local Kinkos in Seoul.  Just google “Kinkos in Seoul” to find the addresses. They are open 24 hours and weren’t a bad price. The copies were EXCELLENT quality paper–perfect for me.  Continue reading

Legit #KoreanFood

#koreanfood done right!  Seoul Train Station has a restaurant on 4th floor called ‘Korean Restaurant’ (inventive huh?! 😂).  It is SO GOOD!  #motherdearest ordered the #galbi stew and I ordered #Bulgogi.  All the side dishes came with.  Garlic, Leaf wraps, Kimchi, Radish, Soy Soup, etc.  #Yummy

It’s official – my name is too long for China 😭 They took my boarding pass away and had to get special approval for my name 😂 Finally (after deliberation) they officially agreed to just write it on the pass. 😜

Fun #Train Fact!

22 Jun

Learned something #new today! The bullet #train 🚄 in #China 🇨🇳has seats A, B, C, D, and F.  I asked why no E? ❓

According to my #student the trains are copying the #flight system.  It used to be there were six letters . . . So A & F were #window seat, B & E were #middle seats, and C & D were #aisle seats.  Now if there is no middle seat, they skip that letter.  😜  The things I learn!

Too many #Bikes!

20 Jun

The #bike faze in #Beijing is a little crazy right now.  Never thought you could overdo bicycles, but #Peking might have just managed it.  There is NO sidewalk – Everywhere you are banging your knees! 😡
