Q: Extending Z visa for non-native speaker

Hi all,

 

I have a question concerning extending Z visa for a non-native speaker.

I've been working in China for 2 years now on a Z visa, in Taiyuan, Shanxi province. I wanted to change the employer within the same city. I have all the documents in order and can provide a release letter after my current employment ends. However, I was told that due to a change in the visa policy regarding non-natives, no other employer than my current school can extend the visa for me. If I go to a different city it'll be no problem, but not here.

Does anyone know how this law actually works?  If I do all the paperwork and apply for visa extension myself in HK for example, will I be able to obtain it? Or, if I left China, applied for a completely new Z visa in my home country with an employer in Taiyuan would it be ok? I want to stay in this city at least for another year.

I try to gather as much information as I can, all answers appreciated.

You cannot extend a 'Z' visa. Presumably, what you mean is get a new Residence Permit in the same city. That has nothing to do with your current employers. Your new employers should receive all of your documents and apply for a new FEC/WP. After that, they should help you obtain the new RP from the local PSB. I cannot determine any difference in the process for native or non native speakers. I think you have been fed a bit of BS.

I too, read about 'visa policy change' somewhere.

 

When I submit Resignation letter to my previous employer in Dalian at the end of March 2013, School asked me at which School in Dalian I will work in the future.

 

Few days later, I read about change in regulations somewhere, but considering I wasn't planning to stay in Liaoning, I forgot about it. 

 

There is no difference in Residence permit extension (processing) between Native or Non - native teachers. However, there was a change in Chinese regulation about switching Schools in the same city or even Province.

A: In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in releva
A:In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in relevance depending on the context and location. Here's a breakdown of each aspect:a) Getting the teaching job: Teaching certificates can certainly enhance your chances of securing a teaching position, especially in formal educational settings such as schools and language institutions. Many employers prefer candidates who have undergone specific training in pedagogy and instructional techniques, which these certificates often provide. However, other factors such as experience, references, and the demand for teachers in a particular area also play significant roles in the hiring process.b) Getting a higher salary than your uncertified competitors: In some cases, holding a teaching certificate can indeed lead to a higher salary compared to uncertified competitors. Many educational institutions have structured salary scales that take into account factors such as level of education, years of experience, and additional certifications. Holding a teaching certificate may place you in a higher salary bracket or make you eligible for certain salary incentives or bonuses. However, this can vary widely depending on the specific policies of the institution or organization.c) Getting promotions: Teaching certificates can be beneficial for career advancement and securing promotions within the field of education. They demonstrate a commitment to professional development and mastery of teaching skills, which are qualities that many employers value when considering candidates for leadership positions or administrative roles. Additionally, some promotions may require specific certifications or qualifications, making holding a teaching certificate essential for advancement in certain cases.Regarding which certificate yields better results, it largely depends on the specific requirements of the job market and the educational context in which you intend to work. For example:A Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) is often highly regarded in formal school settings and can be advantageous for those seeking positions in primary or secondary education.Montessori certification is valuable for individuals interested in working in Montessori schools or implementing Montessori principles in their teaching approach.A Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certificate is particularly relevant for those seeking to teach English to non-native speakers in international contexts or language schools.Ultimately, the best certificate for you will depend on your career goals, the specific requirements of the positions you're interested in, and the preferences of potential employers in your target job market. It's essential to research the requirements and preferences of employers in your desired field and tailor your qualifications accordingly. -- ruqaiya761
