Maybe someone can answer this one:
I am travelling through China.
And I am using the last entry of my visa (I applied and got 2, but I went out to southeast asia countries, and then got back into China again).
My flight home leaves from Beijing.
I want to go to Hong Kong (I don't need a visa for HK).
When in HK,
do I need to apply for a new visa for China to go back to Beijing, or my visa is still valid?
Have I "burned out" my last entrance when I got into HK, or I am "still in China itself" somehow?
This thing of HK has me puzzled...
Thanks if anyone know the ansewer.

It used to be the case that you wouldn't be allowed back on your two entry visa. Recently, however, there have been changes to the visa policy allowing foreigners (from certain countries) en route somewhere else to have up to 72 hours in the country without a visa to facilitate business and what not. So you may be able to take advantage of this if you are only go to fly out and already have a ticket, but just do some due diligence.
