Q: Can I use previously authenticated degree to apply for Z-visa?

I've been out of China since October 2019. Will get a new job starting early next year (assuming Z-visa restrictions are further lifted) and I've gotten a head start on the soul draining visa process by getting a new no criminal record authenticated. But what about my previously authenticated degree? It has an authentication stamp from Chinese consulate dated July 2019. Can I just use this for my next work permit process? Or do I have to go through the entire authentication process again (school registrar authentication - county clerk notarization -  state level Secretary of State authentication - federal level Secretary of State authentication)? My college is all the way on the other side of the country and I'm not keen on having to travel there as Covid is starting to pick up again in the US.

If you've been out of China longer than 3 months you need to get a new CBC (Criminal Background Check.)

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
