Q: Anybody out there know a chinese person who has experience in paperwork for Z visa? In Zhengzhou

Hi there!

I am working in a restaurant in Zhengzhou, am from Mexico, and my boss has no experience in the paperwork required to get a Z visa issued for me.

We need a chinese person who has some or little experience in this, maybe a colleague in your school can help us out with this.

Anybody out there could help me out, please?

You will not get it,


sorry but the business has to be registered and have a permit to hire a foreign worker.

If the business has no idea, then most likely they are not allowed to hire non chinese workers.


Next the business will need to supply you the following.

1. copy of their permit to hire foregn worker

2. a letter of invitation

3. They will need to take you to down town Zhengzhou to the one hospital that can do the health check and get a health check booklet. ( takes about 3 hours for medical) and they have it done in a week.


** then after they got all the paper work is the hard part, you can not get a Z visa in China, you have to leave the country,  the one place most people go is Hong Kong, they are issue them still, but also decline a lot also  If you go to Hong Kong, expect to be there a week, whle it process.  Regardless of what others say, use a Visa company in Hong Kong, the week we were there ( had to go twice, i got turned down first time)


By strict rules you are suppose to return to your home nation to apply for new visa, but as of last month, they were still doing them in Hong Kong

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
