Second chinese visa extension ?

Hi,
I'm preparing my trip through Yunnan, Sichuan and Qinghai by bicycle, coming from Ventiane (Laos). So, visa's second extension sounds a problem...but not impossible ! I heard it depends on the PSB "mood" !
From various sources, I listed major PSB from south to north in that huge central zone of China: Dali, Leshan, Songpan, Yushu, Lanzhou, Xining, Jiayuguan and Dunhuang.

I'm very interested with Yushu in particular be cause it's at the perfect place and distance from Leshan (where I should ask for my first extension), considering my itinerary.

So my question is about the reputation of Yushu PSB concerning a second extension. Is it cool or strict there ? I read on this forum that Dunhuang could be a good place for that but it' s too much further north for me.

Dear Nemo73,

believe it or not, I had exactly the same plan as you and just found your post.

I'm cycling from Laos, entering China and I meant to get my first extension in Leshan, and then I was also looking at Yushu and wondering if it would be possible to get a second extension there... or at least, a bus to reach the border, which would be quite far.

Could you let me know how did it go for you?

Thanks in advance mate, cheers.

David

May be of interest:

I passed Yushu a few days ago, and tried to apply for a (second) visa extension: appart from not having the official papers and thus announcing a delay of 10 days to take care of the matter, the extension seemed very possible. And the woman in charge spoke English.

I got a first extension in Golmud very easily, 2 days, English-speaking woman in charge as well.

Good travels,
