I'm an currently in Macau and just went to the Chinese consulate to apply for a Chinese visa.
I'm on my way overland from Germany to Japan and had hoped for a dual entry visa (60 days each) to make it from Macau to the Chinese east coast to take a ferry to South Korea, then Japan and back to China. I provided a list with cities and hotels I plan to stay at while in China.
The lady at the consulate looked a bit bewildered, all she could offer me is a single entry seven day tourist (L) visa and only if I had all hotel bookings and a return flight.
Several years ago I got a Chinese visa in Hong Kong at my guest house. I just handed in my passport in the afternoon, with no itinerary, no bookings, no onward tickets. I got the visa the next morning.
Is this still possible? I guess I have to find some agencies that doesn't ask any questions. I don't want to book all my hostels and the ferry in advanced, I don't know when I will be at a particular place.
Last year I got my Chinese visa in Bishkek in Kyrgyzstan through an agency and again no questions asked.
Anybody has any recent experience with visa agencies in Hong Hong or Macao?
