An update is necessary. If you have a Chinese relative with a Hohhot hukou, you can get a 6 month RP without having to take a medical. This also applies to renewals. If you opt for a 1 year RP, you'll have to take a medical. If you opt for a 2 year RP, you may be refused, and you can't appeal. The cost of a 6 month RP is half the cost of a 1 year RP.

According to Chinese Embassy information you can just dosey-doe into any part of China on a Q1 visa and they will give you a 5 year residence permit with no need to undergo a medical or for a hukou to be produced. The Chinese ID card has to serve as a hukou in many circumstances because when schoolchildren leave their homes to attend school just 20 miles away they are often taken off of the hukou. Here's an excerpt from the Chinese embassy requirements and as you see no mention of hukou.

Q1 Visa

For family reunion, the following documents are required:

(1) An invitation letter issued by a Chinese citizen or a foreign with a Chinese permanent residence permit who lives in China. The invitation letter should contain:

a) Information on the applicant (full name, gender, date of birth, etc.)

b) Information on the visit ( purpose of visit, intended arrival date, place(s) of intended residence, intended duration of residence, relations between the applicant and the inviting individual, financial source for expenditures)

c) Information on the inviting individual (name, contact telephone number, address, official stamp, signature of legal representative or the inviting individual, etc.)

(2) Photocopy of Chinese ID of the inviting individual or foreign passport and permanent residence permit.

Original and photocopy of certification (marriage certificate, birth certificate, certification of kinship issued by Public Security Bureau or notarized certification of kinship) showing the relationship of family members between applicant and inviting individual.

"Family members" refers to spouses, parents, sons, daughters, spouses of sons or daughters, brothers, sisters, grandparents, grandsons, granddaughters and parents-in-law.

For foster care, the following documents are required:

(1)Foster entrustment notarization issued by Chinese Embassies/Consulates General in foreign countries or Foster Care Power of Attorney notarized and authenticated in the country of residence or in China

(2)Original and photocopy of the consignor's passport(s), as well as the original and photocopy of certification (marriage certificate, birth certificate, certification of kinship issued by Public Security Bureau or notarized certification of kinship) showing the relationship between parents and children.

(3)A letter of consent on foster care issued by the trustee living in China who has agreed to provide foster care services and a photocopy of the ID of the trustee.

(4)A photocopy of the certificate indicating the permanent residence status abroad of the parent(s) when the child was born, provided that either or both parents of the child are Chinese citizens.

We kindly remind you that:

Holders of Q1 Visa shall, within 30 days from the date of their entry, apply to the exit/entry administrations of public security organizations under local people's governments at or above the county level in the proposed places of residence for foreigners' residence permits.

Rather than mess around with 6 months or a year trying to extend RP inside China, it probably works out cheaper to return home taking with you wife's ID card, invitation letter and so forth, and returning to China on a Q1 visa and then claiming your 5 year residence permit? No medical needed.
