It takes 7 working days, so normally 9 days due to weekends. It costs ¥160 CNY. The passport photo needed is special, with a blue background. You can get a set for ¥33 CNY in the building.

$350 HK for a 4 working day one. I did this last week, Monday afternoon to Thursday noon. 2 entries is 100 more.

Bank of China just let me convert Renminbi to $500 US. They did not ask where I got the Renminbi, and in particular did not ask me to show withdrawal receipts for it. They set a $500 limit. I did not ask if I could convert more tomorrow. But in 2007 you could even go to another bank the same day and convert another $500. I did that in 2007.
