Q: Foreign Expert Certificate

My Foreign Expert Certificate has been extended five times consecutively (totally 5 years), and the Foreign Expert Bureau refused to extend it again. They said, according to the regulation, a foreign expert (teacher) should leave China for at least one year after 5 years of work. I cannot find any reference to this regulation though I know some people whose schools wasn't able to have them employed for over 5 years. These guys simply found a new job and transferred successfully. Does anyone know about this law? What should I do? Maybe it's just my employer making up a good excuse to not extend with me?

We've already check this last month, it's your employer, you can always go down and ask the FEC office yourself.. China will not enforce this law without good reason.

 

May I ask which city you're working in?

You can read about the Law here:

I think your right, they need a reason to let you go but also need to save face.  I have had my FEC done 4 times over the past 4 years. Each time it is a brand new one from a different school.  Have you been at the same school for 5 years? I have also found that many of the schools out side the 1st tier cities don't know the legalities either. They go by what recruiters (looking for profit) or heresay.

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
