    Default Dutch Special-Passport for former Jew in hiding...

    Hi,

    Thought of sharing this rather interesting passport: was issued to a woman who was in hiding during the war in Holland, as for being Jewish was issued a fake ID card in Amsterdam, 1941.

    After the war, in 1946, after serving with the allied army (1944-45) she went and joined the Dutch Foreign Ministry and became an embassy secretary...being sent to China, Nanjing (1946-1949) then to occupied Japan (1949-1950) and ending up at the Dutch consulate in Tangier (1951-1952).

    Very unique way of ending up after the war...

    Incredible story. Not only did she survive the Nazi onslaught, she went on to see the world. You look at today's world with mostly open borders, it makes all these requests for visas in advance look ridiculous.

    I agree. Though in the past it was not required to travel with so many visas (up to 1940 it was not required for a visa when going to Shanghai), long long ago, it is now ever more needed due to 9/11 and also from fear of immigration, a very sensitive issue now worldwide. The vast contrast between countries and their development has made the illegal immigration a top issue these days. We find tougher and more stricter control of borders and coastal areas in Europe, American-Mexican border and even in Israel, where one of the few "western havens" attracts hundreds a month to our borders from Africa; sadly many are gunned down by the Egyptians in their side.

    I often wondered how strict they were in the 1920's and 1930's on visas world wide. I remember traveling through Europe before the Union was formed. Now that was a treat. I'm sure a wide variety of passports are seen in Israel today. If a person does not have a residence in China, do they have to obtain a visa before entering China?

    Yes. Visa is obtained from all consulates and embassies worldwide, residence is obtainable in a few conditions, for example: if one works for a company registered in China (say foreign company that opens a rep office or a production facility), then one needs to apply for residence permit in China at the right office, right city. Valid for one year, I did so for a few years when I was living there. If one does not plan to work in China but wants a residence permit, then one can apply for one (6 months to 12 months, depending) for having family in the mainland, being married to a Chinese citizen does qualify for such permit but does not qualify for work. Normally, businessmen apply for a biz visa, and if applied properly can obtain one for up to 12 months, multiple entries and each stay up to 60 days or even 90 days, depending where and how applied at the embassy.
    For me, being fluent in Chinese, does help in day-to-day work.

    You are a very talented linguist huddy. Very interesting about China's visas. Thanks for the info.

    Take care,
