The law changed in 2019, you can get a Z visa in China after the Working Permit office gives you a Notice of Working Permit, then a trip to the PSB get a new Z visa, back to the Permit office and submit doc's in person. and get a working permit card.

can the place you work, or are going to work in not answer this for you?

If you are planning to work in China, someone from the HR department should guide you through the process.
If they don;t do the above, they are not legit.

I'd say, most likely not ...

 

You must exit China and apply for Z at the Chinese Embassy in your native country.

 

Now, if you will talk to the potential employer/sponsor of Z visa, they will certainly guide you through the right procedure.

 

Z visa sponsor must apply for your Working permit and employer must state at the application, where do you want to apply for Z visa and all that must be approved by the Foreign Expert Bureau (I think, they renamed that org. ...).

 

In old times (pre 2017), it was required to apply for Z in your home country's Chinese Embassy at your first Z application and after that, it was possible to apply for Z visa at the Chinese Embassy in Hong Kong's Wanchai ...

 

 

Whole Z visa application procedure is nicely explained here:

A:My friends who are managing schools still can't recruit from outside of China because of the borders being closed, as far as I know that doesn't look like it's going to change anytime soon. If you have a current existing residence permit etc you can re-enter the country, going through the usual quarantine process obviously but no new visas are being issued. I don't know about business visas but I suspect it wouldn't be much different. For up to date info you could probably contact the Chinese embassy in your country. -- Stiggs
