I know with the visas of certain countries you can enter right up to the last day stamped on the visa and still stay for the full duration permitted by the visa, say 30 or 90 days etc.
Is this the case with Chinese visas?
I applied for my Chinese visa before leaving home and visited Taiwan before China. I did not expect to stay 90 days in Taiwan but did. When I flew from Taiwan to mainland China I looked at the my visa and saw the date range is six months. I have been granted a dual-entry visa valid for six months. Its "final" date is now about 3 months away.
The two entries are valid for sixty days each. If the "final" date is an expiration date, I would have to rush my time between the end of my first entry and returning for my second entry, which then would not last the full 60 days.
However if the "final" date is just the last day I'm permitted to enter China and can still stay for the full 60 days, then I have more flexibility. I know the visas for some countries work this way.
Which way does it work for a Chinese visa?
(Apologies for the awkward wording, I don't know the proper terminology.)
