I have an 18 month contract, so I guess a 2 year contract wouldn't be odd. However, I'll be careful with the salary bit because employers may use this to freeze your pay for 2 years.

Some international schools have 2 year contracts. Other than that I don't know.

I signed a 5 year contract, coming up on the end of the 4th year here in a few months.  Of course I still have to renew the residence permit annually, and I also have to sign some Chinese document every year.  Who knows what's happening, as long as they keep paying me broken heart

As long as the school or company is worth or has over Y2 million RMB then 2 to 5 year resident permits can be granted.

How do I know? I've already asked the PSB... I'm always trying to secure a longer way to stay with my family here.

Depends on the industry!

 

Schools, less likely (unless bigger, richer, international reputation type stuff)

 

Other jobs (engineers, managers, etc) pretty normal!

Most definitely.  I   Just  finished a two year contract at my school.  The local PSB only gave me a residence visa year by year.  But the FEB in the county seat gave me a two permit to work for the school.

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
