Hahahaha ... just out of curiosity, Daniel Lessor, what happened?
I know zero about this Bureau you have mentioned, but:
1. Like (the other)
Daniel said, the way I see it, missing links (lack of communication) are not uncommon within (and between) government bodies and agencies, which might in fact be one reason behind the (stupid) fact that if the locals want to get the "pass" to go to Hong
Kong or Macau, they have to go all the way back to their home town, but not where they are working/living ...
2. This particular "agency" you have mentioned, is it a privately run organisation, or a "proper" government thing? If it is private, it probably wont mean much (unless we can prove that they do have VERY strong ties with this Bureau thing), however, if
it is government related, then this might be quite serious, and
my guess is when you current visa exprires, they might ask you (very nicely, I am sure) to move to another district or even city?
So ... care to tell us what happened?
