I already have a 10-year multiple entry visa to China. The max duration of each stay is 90 days. Would I be allowed to stay for an entire year, as long as I leave the country and re-enter at least once every 90 days?

  • You could until the Chinese authorities decide you are 'residing' on a tourist visa.

    Do you have a double entry or true multiple-entry ? @hippietrail might be interested to hear about this

Yes, you are allowed to stay as long as you have an exit and entry out of the China every 90 days. 10-year multiple entry visa's do not have limitations on the number of entry and exit. You can leave for 1 day and come back without a problem.

  • Do you have a source for this? Personal experience?

  • yup. personal experience for both myself and my friends. The 10-year visa is intended for people who frequently travel to and from China.
