I don't think anyone is safe. The so called security doesn't exist.

China Plans New Bureau to Handle Growing Number of Expats
2018-03-16 ThatsShanghai

The China unveiled plans to set up a new streamlined immigration bureau that would process both exit-entry applications for citizens and visas for foreigners, according to a new policy proposed earlier this week at the Two Sessions.

As per state-run broadcaster CGTN:

"The proposed administration will be responsible for coordinating and formulating immigration policies and their implementation, border control, managing foreigners' stay. It will also take the lead in coordinating measures to deal with foreigners who illegally enter, stay or work in China, and the repatriation of illegal immigrants.

"The administration will also provide exit and entry services for Chinese nationals on private affairs and engage in international cooperation in the field of immigration, among others."

Under the proposal, the Ministry of Public Security would set up a state immigration administration that would merge the duties of the current Exit and Entry Administration and China Immigration Inspection.

The proposal also notes that with an increasing number of foreigners living and working in China, new requirements must be raised for "immigration administration and services." Since 1980, the number of foreigners employed in the Middle Kingdom has skyrocketed from 10,000 to 900,000 (as of 2016).

An expert told Sixth Tone that the new bureau will "consolidate all immigration-related information in a centralized database, making it more readily accessible to authorities."

Delegates are scheduled to vote to approve the new bureau along with a series of other sweeping reforms later this month.

So my worry is that there will be another round of Visa changes AGAIN! Hopefully they'll go after all of these illegal Russians

Is the number increasing recently? They always compare from 1980. I think this has more to do with the recent increase of locals traveling abroad. Read the article carefully, understanding the source. China likes to spin things and outright lie to gain face.

The number of expats in China has actually gone down, thanks to Emperor Xi's drive toward nationalism. More people left last year then entered. More propaganda...

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
