Q: Can I leave my language school for another job without losing my z visa?

My school has given me a contract which they seem to think is not worth following.  I am half way through my contract.  I want to move on but I do not want to return to my home country to get another visa.  Am I stuck until the end of my contract?  I have heard that only the original employer can renew a visa without going home.  Is there another way?

Z visa get converted to Residence permit, and it expired in 30 days after you entered China.

- Find new School/RP sponsor.

- Get one (or more) Contract violation by your employer, and state them in the Resignation notice. After you handed RN, you must respect RN period. 30 - 90 days, depend on your Contract.

- Visit SAFEA in the city, and ask them for advice and guidance. Most likely, you will need SAFEA later to help you recover necessary documents and salary from your old School.

 

When School is in the Contract breach, you can change employer, and keep your RP intact.

Your new School should be authorized to hire FT, and able to extend your RP. You don't need to exit China (new Z).

yes you can. 

 

just transfer your work permit and resident permit under new school. 

1 cancel the work permit of your previous school

2 then apply for the work permit under the new school.

3 go to interview in public securtity bureau

4 got approved and then got the approval result

5 apply for the resident permit in public security bureau. 

 

of course, the premise is that your resident permit doesnt expire . still have at least one month to process i suggues. 

 

Best Regards

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
