Q: Can a teacher older than 65 get a work permit under special circumstances

I have 4 years experience teaching English, VCE Accounting and Business in China plus 4 years in Australia teaching Economics and Business. I would like to get another job in China but schools cannot get a work permit for me. Is there any way this problem can be solved?

The work permit is denied because once you are 65 years of age, you can not be enrolled in the school health insurance.  And with no health insurance, no work.

 

I do know of a way around it, but two things will need to happen :

 

1.- The school will have to need or want you real bad, and be willing to do a bit more work in securing the work permit with the right "guangxi".

2.- You will have to get yourself some private health insurance with an overseas insurance agency that will pay claims in China.  It will be expensive, and you will have to pay for it.

 

I do know an 83 years old Ex-Pat teaching at a local university a class on movies and TV productions, and this is how he got his work permit.

Hi Ron, sorry buddy, no can do. There has been some cases in the past where Expats were allowed to work until about 68 if they were in administration or boss positions but unfortunately these days we are seeing the Chinese government up hold their local laws. We lost two really experienced legal professionals this year. For two years, it was never a problem but this year has been somewhat different story

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
