I'm in Guangzhou with just a few days left on my tourist visa.
I intended to apply for a visa extension here tomorrow morning (Monday). That should cost about $31 USD.
But just found out a travel buddy just moved into a flat in Hong Kong.
So I have another option of going to visit him (no visa required for me) and crashing at his place for a few days while I get a new Chinese visa there.
Now, only HK residents can apply for a visa directly in HK and the rest of us are obliged to use an agency.
I'm struggling to find what would be about the lowest price an agent currently charges for this in Hong Kong. I won't need the rush service and it will just be for a single-entry 30-day "L" tourist visa. (Though the price for a dual-entry visa would be good to know too.)
As well as the price I'd like to know how many days it takes so I can tell me friend how long I'd be in the way for (-:
So far I found a price of $750 HKD (about $100 USD) but that's for a rush visa.
