72hrs transit whilst z-visa application in process (Beijing)

Hi there

On 6 August my employer has applied for the employment license, which is estimated to be issued next week. Upon receipt they will apply for the visa notification letter, which is estimated to be issued on or around 15 September.

I am currently in Germany and I am planning to travel in the first week of September from Germany to Hong Kong and then from Hong Kong via Beijing back to Germany. I would love to visit friends in Beijing and thought I could avail of the 72hrs transit visa at Beijing Airport as the layover is 22 hours only.

Does anyone know if this would have any (adverse) impact on the z-visa application process, i.e. delay, interruption?
