Would I need a Z visa and work permit to work as a volunteer in a Chinese school?

First, you should ask yourself how will you find teaching work in China as volunteer. You didn't read any job volunteering vacancies in China, did you?

 

Chinese don't know what volunteering is, so you can get paid work as an English teacher and you will need Z visa.

Why do you think you will need a work permit to work, even though it is unpaid work? Do you think you have answered your own question? But don't worry, nothing could go wrong if you work on a tourist visa. Chinese authorities are always cool about this sort of thing.

Any work, volunteer or paid, is illegal in China, unless it is agreed upon and part of the company or school you are working for. It is just that simple. No working outside of your contract agreement. If you do, you suffer the consequences if caught.

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
