Q: Can a dependent with Z visa work?

Hi, I am new to Shanghai but my 2nd trip to China. I am here on a dependent visa(z). Is it legal to find a job as a dependent? Earlier worked in Harbin as an English teacher 4 years ago? Any suggestions/ experiences appreciated!

Legally NO,you can not unless you get a Z visa issued to you.  As a lawful dependent of another person holding a Z visa all you can legally do is enter China and reside with that person, nothing else.

Happy is right. My advice is to make the dependent also enter with a Zombie visa. If you both have a z, you can both work.

Indeed, and this is the end of the year, and for many well-known reasons, all of the local PSB's become remarkably more vigilent this time of year.

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
