I am a Japanese citizen in China. I want to renew my Japanese passport in China and still use the Chinese visa from my old passport.
Is this possible at the Japanese Embassy in China?

Valid visas or resident permits in expired passports are accepted if holding a new valid passport of the same nationality. The personal information on both passports must be the same.
You have to renew your passport and keep the old one is a common procedure. Then you have to travel with your two passports, the old one with the valid visa and the new one.
