Let me start by telling you that your work visa was good for 30 days to enter China, and once here, you were supposed to get a health check, a FEC, then a work permit and a residence permit.  Both of those permits are good for the length of your contract, or until you resign and/or are fired, or for as long as you are working for the same employer. 

 

As far as I know, as long as you are working for the same employer, the location is irrelevant, but maybe in the case of the residence permit, if you change  the city you may need to visit PSB at the new city and let them know your new address.

 

But if your move is as a result of a change of employers, then you must have the permits changed to the new employer within 10 days of the change, or redo the whole process of a work visa again if by whatever reason it can not be changed.

Many thanks for your details. Let me explain maybe a little more my conditions.

 

I was working in Shanghai for 6 years, (Same company), that job came to a end and I had to find another job which was in Guang Zjou, I agreed and mored here. The company was to arrange the visa change after they arranged as to be able to hire western people. This was only done and now I need to change.

 

I was told that Shanghai is a different department to Guang Zhou so I may have to return Shanghai and cancel my working permit. This I feel is odd as many years ago when I change jobs it was a simple transfer. But this was in Shanghai.

 

Would you know if I must do as above and return Shanghai and close my working permit and start again in Guang Zhou. I feel this is odd as above I had been in China now 13 years and changed jobs 3 times in Shanghai and it was very simple as long as I have a document from my old company to say I was employed there and now is gone and the new contracts and so on.

 

If you can help I would be grateful.

First I will tell you what I think, but I am ASSUMING (and you know the dangers of that).

I think that there will be no need for you to go to Shanghai to cancel your work permit and residence permit, that should be done internally between PSB's offices. 

 

What you should do is visit the PSB office in Guangzhou with the proper paperwork to transfer the permits (do not forget the release letter from former employer), and using that as a reason, try to change them.  I am sure PSB in Guangzhou will tell you exactly what they will want you to do.  Or find a Chinese speaking friend and ask him or her to call PSB and ask them the questions you are seeking answers for.

 

If I recall correctly, the PSB offices in Guangzhou are on the 5th floor of their building, where documentation is examined.  Once everything is correct, you are sent to the next higher floor for submitting them and processing.  While the lower floor is open to public, the upper one is only for those bringing documents, no friends allowed.

Hi you dont need to cancel your visa,  you can transfer it after you arrive in GZ, if you ever cancel your Z visa, you will be regretful as you can not get a Z visa in GZ, you have to go back to your country to apply for Z visa if you work in GZ.

But if you have friends who need a M  visa, you can contact this email: charityzx@hotmail.com   I can get you a M visa which is valid for one year. And you can use it anywhere in China
