A bump in the road ~ Shanghai 

By ( 13 )

As it turned out, Myanmar was not meant to happen till December. 

My passport vanished and when you lose a passport as a resident in China, here is what you have to do:

  • File a police report at the local police station 
  • Take the report to the exit/entry bureau and request a lost passport form
  • Take the form to the consulate of your country
  • Get a replacement passport
  • Get a linkage letter confirming connection of old passport to new passport
  • Take the passport to the local police station to update your registration form
  • Take passport, registration form and visa documents to exit/entry bureau
  • Apply for new resident visa
  • Reapply for Myanmar visa
  • Reissue passports and itinerary 
  • Wait and cross your fingers

I became so familiar with the government officials that I’m thinking of baking them cookies just about now! 

So with love from Shanghai and soon from elsewhere 🙂

And I am a big believer in things happening for a reason. Myanmar awaits.
