About:China Visa Entries / Validity / Duration of Stay

Hi, I am going to China to visit my Chinese wife for 9 months.

The visa company in China told my wife to tell me to apply for a Q2 type as more easy to get than Q1 then apply for an extension in China. It all seemed crazy to me because I thought Q2 would be more easy and when in China apply for the temperay residents permit.
Anyway, I applied here in New Zealand yesterday and the Chinese Consulate told me to apply for a Q2 with multiple entry. They said before the 180 days has expired I can go to Macau or wherever and return with another 180 days remaining. This would be more than I need so I agreed with them and applied for the Q2 with multiple entry.
I am now thinking are the correct because with other China visa issues with them before have been wrong.
What are your ideas about think.
Thanking you in advance, Shayne.

Shayne, if the consulate told you to apply for a multiple-entry Q2 type, I think it is a good choice. You can just apply for it.
Or you can apply for a Q1 type if you don’t trust what the consulate said; after you enter China with a Q1 type, you can apply for a residence permit which will allow you to enter and exit China for multiple times within its validity.
