A permanent residence permit based on marriage to a PRC national is not available until the marriage has lasted at least 5 years. Until that time, the non-PRC spouse needs a Q visa. The Q category is for spouses and family members, and allows you to stay in China to be with your family. There are two types of Q visas - Q1 and Q2. Q1 is for longer stays. Q2 is for 180 days or less. Specifically, one wants a Q1 visa, which allows a time limit of up to 2 years, and can be renewed. You can find more information on how to apply for a Q1 visa HERE.
I hope this helps and clarifies. Please use the SEND or REPLY button to keep chatting, or please RATE when finished. You may always ask follow ups at no charge after rating. Kindly rate my answer as one of TOP THREE FACES/STARS and then SUBMIT, as this is how I get credit for my time with you. Rating my answer the bottom two faces/stars or failing to submit the rating does not give me credit and reflects poorly on me, even if my answer is correct. I work very hard to formulate an informative and honest answer for you; please reciprocate my good faith with a positive rating.
