Chinese visa extension Xi'an

Postby Rupert » Wed Oct 24, 2018 10:36 am

The relevant Xi'an PSB is southwest of the old city walls at exit C1 of Taibainan Lu metro station. Foreigners should use the right-hand entrance and go up 2 floors. Staff speak adequate English.
To apply for an extension you need:
1. Passport
2. Copy of passport ID page, current Chinese visa and entry stamp
3. Itinerary for the remainder of your stay in China
4. Copy of hotel registration in Xi'an
5. An application form (which the PSB will give to you)
6. 160 RMB
7. Copy of credit card
Photocopying can be done on Floor 2.
All applicants have to have a digital photograph taken on Floor 2. The photographer will give you a piece of paper which you include with your application (which you hand in on Floor 3).

I applied on a Tuesday in September 2018. The PSB said that my passport would be ready to collect 7 working days after I lodged my application (which was Friday of the next week, as Monday was a national holiday). However, I rang the PSB on Friday (i.e. 3 working days after I lodged my application) and my extension was ready. Another tourist who applied at the same time as me reported that his application took a couple more days to process.

I should add that the Xi'an PSB appeared to be giving 30 day extensions. It didn't matter that my itinerary showed I needed less than that - I still got 30 days.
