Q: question. I have a marriage visa, can I do any kind of work apart from teaching ?

I have just changed my working visa to a marriage visa because my old company did not inform me that they will not renew my contract till the last minute. My question is can I do any kind of work legally apart from teaching? Thank you.

I know this is probably a totally absurd idea - but how about you look up the rules and regulations that relate to your visa... like on a Chinese Visa website?

 

Or, what the hell, even wiki!!

 

Or, if you're really daring - try doing a 'search' for it...

What can you do? There are options but they are usually specialized things or something that involves being white.You can always start your own business. Hotels look for foreigners to work at certain things. No offense, but if you are here teaching then that's probably all you can do...if not, you most likely would have found something better. English is the one things you dont need anything to do, other than speak the language. You don't even need a teaching degree.....or a degree at all. they say you need a degree, but not really. if you are white and a native speaker without any skills....English teaching is the only thing you can do....other than stand there and get paid to look white.

..ecc has a non teaching job section...that would be a good place to start.

If you are on a marriage visa, then there is ABSOLUTELY NO work that you can legally do,even teaching.  LEGALLY you are only allowed to work on a work visa.

Go to Dave's ESL cafe

Next go to: international jobs

Use your web browser feature "find on page", type in "online".

Than scroll through the online teaching jobs for the best paying online teaching, it's a huge new market opening new small companies all the time.

Also look for Meisi and Dada ABC English and Echina has a lot of these jobs.

Think of it this way you can make 600rmb a day and 30 days = 18,000RMB

This is the best loophole you can find because you're working from home with the internet you pay for. Best to have the money sent to your wife's account

A marriage visa is just an dependent visa with your family, it doesn't mean you can work legally. If you want to work, you still need to apply work visa or you can just follow the above answers.

But if you can get a Chinese PR, then you can work legally. Hope can help you.
