Good wishes to all!
#1. I need information on a permanent resident visa or the best visa with the longest stay period.
#2. What is the best way to handle money in respect to my direct deposit retirement checks to bank in U.S. and accessing that money from China?
Is there a Bank of China branch in U.S. or some other Chinese bank where deposits can be made here and withdrawn in China or am I wishful thinking.
Thanks
