Q: Can Non native with work permit get the Z visa

Now that there is going to be a new policy in April, If  a Non native got his work permit issued in March,  Can he get the Z visa if applied?  Actually he got his work permit on March 2nd and he wants to go back home for the Zvisa. Basically he will work in Huzhou (Zhejiang province)

You seem to be asking very similar questions but with slightly different information.

 

Are you in China now workingg legally?

If you got a Z visa in March than it should have been converted into a Working permit, sounds like what you are trying to say is that you have a friend that has a working permit and you are asking if he can keep it or does he have to go through the Z visa deal again?

 

Clear up the info so we can help you.

Where is he from and does he have a degree from a native English speaking country ? I'd say his chances are 50%/50% especially if he can't speak Chinese well. This new policy will start April 1st but how each city uses it is another question. He'll just have to try. If he is becoming an IT again then the non native thing doesn't apply to him because that is a requirement for ESL teachers not IT workers

No.

 

Simple.

 

The Z visa allows you to enter the country, and then apply for the Work Permit, based upon qualifications, experience, etc.

 

As per ANY visa issued in ANY country, the authorities have the right to deny entry to the country, or for ANY other permits, etc once you're here. \

 

You must be aware that there are various applications, all with different requirements that need to be met. The Z visa to enter the country is different to the one to stay here and word (in a particular field).

 

And, finally, the native/non-native issue only relates to teaching a foreign language.

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
