Q: Are age limitations for the employment of foreign teachers strictly adhered to.strictly adhered to

My understanding is there are age limitations for foreign teachers obtaining a Z visa and work permit to legally teach in Chinese schools.

Are these limitations Chinese law or rules and are they strictly adhered to or can a older foreign teacher be employed in a Chinese school under certain conditions?

Ignore the answer above. The maximum age limit for getting a work permit is generally 60 though Shanghai and Beijing have recently relaxed this for "high level talents" (so NOT ESL teachers).

60-years age limit isn't requirement for Z visa/Working permit as I ( edit: 'don't') understand.

 

Age limit is based on employer's mandatory Health insurance for foreigners (teachers), which became much more expensive, if applied to FT older than 60y.

I can't tell, how age limit is applied at employment in China, but I guess it is very difficult to even get School's reply to CV of FT older than 60 years.

I'd say, it would be possible to convince School to renew employment of FT over 60-y old by offering to cover insurance cost by FT. Just my guess!

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
