Q: Doing the Medical: Do you have to get the medical done just because you left China?

I have been reneweing my work visa for many years in China. I ran into an issue this year. I was transfered to a school in September. At that point I had my visa renewed and did the medical. The medical is good for 6 months. But I was transfered to another school for the spring term. I was told I would have to do the medical again because I went to Macao for 6 hours. Apparently that meant that I left China; therefore I had to do the medical again. Is anyone here familiar with this situation? I have alsways went home to Canada during the summer. and had to have the medical done every year. But I didn't know this meant I had to have a medical done just because I went to another part of China. Even Yunnan would be more dangerous for picking up a communicable disease.

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
