China has a rule that to obtain a multiple entry visa you must be able to show immigration information for two previous stays, not always in very clear English.
Now just over a year ago in late 2013 and early 2014 I visited China two times on a double-entry visa that I obtained in Laos after asking a previous question on the site about Chinese multiple-entry visas.
This time I have a narrower question. I intend to visit China again in just over a month and would really like a true multiple-entry visa this time so that I can cross over land borders into China's neighbours and back more times (I don't have an exact plan).
So will my two previous visits on a single two-entry visa satisfy this condition, or must it definitely be two physically separate visas?
