Q: Do you personally known of a foreigner who was deported from China?

Do you personally know of a foreigner who was deported from China?  For what reason?  Visa overstay?  Conduct?  Other reasons? Did the foreigner try to come back to China?

I have known two cases locally.
One was for working without a Z visa and other required documents.  He was jailed for a few days until deporting papers were processed, then placed on a plane.
The other one was for a visa overstay.  This was a long overstay, many years, not just a few days.  Again, when caught was taken to jail for a few days and afterwards deported. 

Neither has returned to China yet.  Unfortunately, they were the type of person that will pay no attention to good advise, and think they know better.

Thanks very much for the answer, Happy.

The cases that I knew of were a little different.  I worked with a lady from England who just was bound and determined to lecture everyone about T**w*n and what she thought, etc.   The first time that she gave a public lecture about it, she was sent home from work without pay for two weeks and was encouraged "to think about her behavior".  That served no purpose -- she came to work and about one week later, started her speeches again.  This time, they were really strict -- she was taken by train, like a prisoner, to Beijing Airport, and then deported to Thailand, of all places, as it was the first plane out at the moment she arrived in Beijing. Nothing more was ever heard of her.

The second case was like the one that you mentioned -- a very, very long visa overstay but this time the stay in jail was quite long -- a Canadian who thought that he knew everything -- and then he was deported.

Yes. His boss cancelled his visa, got locked up for a month, deported and can't come back after two years. He's a good friend of mine. 
Reason - His boss cancel his because he thinks this person was flirting with his wife.

When I was in highschool, a schoolmate was caught in a police raid in a bar, and was searched. He had cocaine in his pocket, so he got deported and will never be able to enter the country again. He was one of those cocky beijing foreign highschoolers who think they're superior to anyone and can get away with anything, so I guess he had it coming.

There is at times a bit of prevalent Wild-West attitude on the part of a small group of foreigners here and I emphasize the small group of foreigners. Your high school mate is luck that they did not remand him to jail.  That would not have been a pleasant experience.

Yes... my roomate was detained for 6 hours two days ago by PSB agents who visited the school where she had been teaching without a Z visa. She came to China after China ESL told her she did not need a Z visa and she could work on an L or F visa, because the owner of China ESL (Rebcca Tang) has "connections".  They made her buy a plane ticket today and she has to leave in 7 days. They told her she cannot come back to china for 5 years and she has been tagged or flagged - whatever that means. She was one of two dozen foreign teachers picked up the other day for the same problem and 9 of them used the same recruiter.

My sister was deported in 2011 while she was in her last year of law school at Renmin University.  She got caught working  as an English tutor for Web International on a student visa and even though the university did their best to plead mercy for her, the PSB lady was a prick and gave her the boot. She only had three months to graduation. She got screwed out of her law degree because of that stupid visa BS. The woman agent who recruited her from China ESL told her it was "no big deal" to work without a Z visa and "everyone has been doing it for years." BTW... Web didn't do squat to help her and would not even write a letter on her behalf.

Off hand, I knew two in Hangzhou, both were real a**holes and good riddance.

 

One was this clown from Florida. He stated that he graduated from the Naval Academy and I really had no reason to doubt him. He played guitar in the bars and at first I thought he was cool and he was from the South (USA) like myself.

 

Well, turns out, he was an abusive jerk. He had at least two Chinese girlfriends, the first just grew to hate the guy (she was also a bit nuts). The second girl I did not know, but supposedly he beat her up one night and that's all she wrote. Bye Bye.

 

The second guy was a friend of mine who was here for several years. WAS is the optimum word because we had a falling out over some BS and he took it too personally and was going around lying about me trying to destroy my reputation. We also had the same circle of friends, so I basically had to avoid everyone to avoid him. He was also screwing prostitutes on the side and had the audacity to show pictures of them online. I dont know why he got the boot except again, that he was an asshole and the whole hooker thing probably worked against him. He was also a journalist of some note, and he got kicked out in 2008 before the Olympics.

We had a guy from Australia kicked out this week, it seems he took photos of a factory or around a factory that use to be a military facility. They seized his cameras and hard drives and 72 hours later, he was gone.

Second hand information but I had an acquainance who is a youngish English guy who worked as a teacher and a DJ in clubs in town. Really nice guy. I dont know the whole tale except for what his brother wrote on social media but supposedly the cops knocked on his door late one night and forced him to do a drug test which he failed, since he probably smoked marijuana socially. I dont know why the cops would have information on him or knock on his door, but he was put in detention and deported and put on a plane with little more than the clothes on his back.

 

Seems that after so many years, China is clamping down on this. I read another story about some tourists who didnt smoke or tried to in China out of fear of arrest here, but were smokers back in Massachuttes in the USA where pot is now legal and forced into a pee test and kicked out. So it maybe is good to abstain from this, especially if you live in a larger city.

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
