Q: Has anyone ever heard of a B visa? Here be unicorns!

A friend of mine who is married to a Chinese guy told me today that her company says she can get a B visa which will allow her to work legally. Apparently, it is for "a family member working visa".

 

Yes, my bullshit detector was off the scales too.

 

She maintains that it is on a government system and the boss spoke to someone in the government who confirmed this. She reckons she saw it on the system (in Chinese?) and was looking at it as we spoke. Maybe she thought R visa was a B visa. I don't know.

 

Anyway, I have never heard of this and my Bing searches failed to find anything at all about a B visa. My bullshit detector is still in the red.

 

Just wondering if anyone has heard of such a mythical beast? And if so, what is it?

** Note: I'm an arsehole for calling bullshit on this. I know, I'm generally an arsehole, but specifically this time, there is a reason.

Now the visa troll disappears? Convenient. Does this friend also think 9/11 was an inside job and the Vegas massacre had multiple shooters in multiple casinos?

The B Visa is held in Beijing for B.B. King.  He’s the only Being Beknighted with such Benevolence.  

   yeah, I’m an Elvis man, but B.B. rockin’ ‘the thrill is gone’ is in a world of it’s own!

Maybe talking about a B work permit. Get a wp, an RP is sorted.

Direct your friend to this website iwolf... all answers are here.

It never stops amazing me that so many foreigners here are too lazy, or too much head in the sand, to do a few clicks and research.

It means she is allowed to come off a family resident permit and on to a working permit and she's gonna be a teacher because she got a B talent card, that means she qualified for it. She only switched visas and the PSB will just switch the sticker in the passport to a working permit.

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
