Q: Can I get a Z visa invitation from a third party (legally) and then work somewhere else ?

The college I am volunteering at on a student visa  has offered to pay me full wages, but can't do so because it is not authorized to directly employ foreigners. Can I channel my wages through a  third party and get a visa that way?

 

I am in Chengdu, if you know any companies that can do that  (legally), please let me know

 

What are my other options?

Once you're talking about legal work in China/Z visa, you can work only at Z sponsor, which must be authorized for foreign hire by SAFEA, in order to get Working permit and Invitation letter, both documents needed at Z visa application.

 

There are Co's. in China, who hold foreign hire authorization, and have Contracts with schools around China, where they send FTs once they arrived to China with Z.

You might get more info on such possibilities from Visa agents.

 

Here's one:

Let's look at your question. Is there a legal way to break the law? No. There are ways around the law, but I'm not going to make myself an accessory.

just take the job on a student visa dude. no one will care.u r just teaching kids, not like working for NASA. 

 

If any one asks , your just a student there. Although keep in mind if ur gonna work illegally forget about ur rights. So either u suck it up and take a risk or let it pass.

A:I think the first "not smart" thing you did was to think of everyone as a subordinate. They are in fact your team members. You are also a team member and your role is to supervise, not flex your muscles. It drives you nuts when your boss does this and then you do exactly the same thing. Think about it. Adapt, change, bend the rules and be more efficient. -- iWolf
