I know that many people work with business or student visas in China. That is illegal but it happens all the time.

Yeah i think depends where you are in China and who your employers are. I was at the visa office a few weeks ago renewing my sons visa and I met a guy from Ukraine and he just renewed his work visa for teaching English. He has his B rating card and a z resident permit. ... but they only gave him 6 months. I’m not sure why as he said his passport never expired for a few more years. 

 

I guess it just depends. I know some could not but this guy seemed too... even if it was for only 6 months.

Contact an employer in China and they will tell you right away (or a little bit later), if you qualify for Working permit as NNES.

As far as I know, you could get Working permit only if you hold degree completed in Native English country.

For what job? English teachers need to be native speakers to get the visa.

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
