Q: Cancellation of Z-visa?

I´ve just resigned from my position as a teacher in a training school.

I´ve been working there for 1 1/2 years and teminated my contract 6 months early.

I left due to an opening at another school and there were no bad feelings involved (at least as far as I know)

Should I be worried about having my Z-visa cancelled?

My new contract (part time) has not been signed yet, as I am going on vacation for 3 weeks shortly.

Thanks

The visa you have was given to you to work at that school, if you gave the amount of notice required in your contract you likely can still get them to issue you a release letter and transfer your visaw to the new company, traveling while all that is unresolved ... well I would sort it out first but that's me ...

I know, but if you simply leave and don't get a release letter when that Visa expires good luck getting another one without having to go back to your home country..

Thanks guys - been very helpful.

I´m just gonna hold on to my pasport for now and enjoy my vacation back home.

I already have another job lined up - just had to make sure I´ll be able to enter the country again on my current visa. I´ll get my release letter when I get back and then everything should be ok.

Yah you'll be ok coming back... If you're going home why not get a letter of invitation and just apply for a new visa from home and solve the problem?

I have a friend here in China who can sort everything out in a flash (he owns a school and deals with these problems quite often)

It´s all good and now I can enjoy my stay at home without worrying about being denied entry in the airport.

Thanks again

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
