Exit/Entry question

Post New Topic

Hi - I am British, my wife Chinese. 2 year old daughter, born in China holds a China passport, Hukou, ID card etc, as well as having a UK passport.
My wife has multi-entry visitor visa for UK - my daughter does not.
Plan is to continue living in China for next 7 or so years, and our wish is that daughter attends Chinese primary school - harsh, but great into to studying, and for catering basic Chinese verbal and writing skills.
Well aware of China rules re not having dual nationality.
However, we need to travel to UK a few times over the next year for both business and pleasure, but need to ensure daughter retains Chinese nationality for schooling.
My current plans are:
We fly to London via 2 days in Thailand (Visa on arrival for Chinese so wife covered). Daughter leaves China on China passport, lands in BKK and uses UK passport for immigration. Fly to LHR exiting BKK on UK passport and entering UK on UK passport.
On return - leaves UK on UK passport, arrive BKK for 2 days using China passport, fly back to China leaving BKK on China passport.
Question - on arrival back in China, would immigration there question the fact that daughter left China 3 weeks ago to go to BKK, but only had stamp showing arrival a few days ago?
Or would they just not care...........?
