Q: Can I get blacklisted from getting a new work permit if I leave my job?

I have work permit that expires in January 2019 but strange case my residence permit already expired in July 2018. So I am on a tourist visa however my school still has my valid work permit. Obviously I am not supposed to work here but if I leave, the school might cancel my work permit. Could that get me blacklisted from getting a new work permit next year?

Have you actually seen your work permit?

If you are here for a while work permits and resident permits can get out of sync. For example, last time the company got mine it was a 2 year RP and a 1 year RP.

So its not unusual at all for them to expire in different years.

However, your company should have renewed your RP when it was due.

I will get flamed for this, but a mate was at a visa seminar last week, and he finally agrees with what I say.

You need a current RP in your passport, a work permit card, and a temp registration form. Supposed to be carried at all times, and all need to match up.

Copies, or phone photos are ok, but all 3 docs need to match up.

Tell your school that it is illegal for them to withold documents from you. In the west it would come under slavery and anti trafficing laws.

Your work permit was issued to you by the PRC. You are technically required to have it on your person at all times.

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
