Q: Do I need the work permit cancellation letter or the release letter if I leave China?

I was working for two months at a school in Shenyang China and I quit the job after the manager starting yelling at me when I said that I am not going to do demo classes for the school as it is not written in the contract and I had asked about why social insurance premiums and taxes  were not taken out of my salary. I had stayed in China for a month after and had another job lined up. I was waiting for the school to pay me, cancel my work permit and provide me with my release letter. After they had paid my salary minus the contract breach fee I had left China as I wanted to be with my girlfriend who lives in Cambodia. Since then the school has provided me with the work permit cancellation letter but they had told me that they will not give me the release letter until I have gone with them to the PSB to cancel my residence permit. I had left China before they were able to cancel my resident permit as I did not want to have to wait in China for 30 days. I am aware that I would get a visa that would give me 7 days to leave China and that I would have to reapply for a z visa anyway. As I have left China does this mean that I would have to reapply for a z visa like before and that I would not need the release letter and the work permit cancellation letter.

Why are you worrying now?

 

Apply for the new job in China and you'll see what documents employer will ask considering your previous job in China.

 

Chinese Labour law has changed in 2016/17 and many details are still unknown.

Before 2016, you were required to provide Release letter and FEC Cancelation slip from your previous employer in order to start new Working permit application.

You only need the release letter if you want to transfer your work visa to a new employer without leaving China to get a new Z visa. In your case, nothing to worry about.

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
