original post is too long, I am picking out some more important points to translate, the whole text is here, google translate is always your most trustful friends: ÎÒÑÛÖÐµÄÓ¡¶È - Ò»¸öÖÐ¹úÈËÔÚÓ¡¶ÈµÄÈÕ×Ó£¡Í¼-¾üÊÂ-CHNÇ¿¹úÍø What is REAL Sino-Indo relationship? How they actually see us? Based upon my personal experience, I would say sino-Indo relationship is nothing but complicated. If I must summarize it, I would say, cold in political, lukewarm at best in people to people and one side heat in business. In a nutshell, sino-indo relationship is kept to room temperature. In political domain, indian are indifferent or hostile to Chinese, I experienced this coldness when I applied visa. Despite their well-known â€œoffice efficiencyâ€, hostility towards Chinese citizen contributed more to even slower processing. The denial of entrance rate is comparatively high, checking of background is extremely tough, all aside, it is impossible to get a long-stay visa, you are lucky if you got 3 months, but this is far from enough, you need to renew it by the time you start, because it took them 45 days to renew one, I just donâ€™t have a clue how on earth they can do things with such a speed. Bugger! I am on my student visa, I have been waiting for more than 1 month to get one, business visa is even harder, and there is no grace period that allows one businessman to stay and apply for renewal, you must leave on the dot. Once you arrived, the local police and their national security will interrogate you to an extend of being intolerable ( this OP is a female student I guess from her style in writing, indian cops are just harassing her by doing so). Foreigners who stay longer time must apply for another permit, and as well, it need to be renewed and it took equally long. Anyways, the math is you should allow half of your stay time to submit your application of renewal. It is the India speed. I am not only saying government, other institutions, be it tourist agency or enterprises, things will be the same, be careful with your visa before you even go there, they charge you several dollars if you got expired due to the waiting.
