You'll have to change it to Z visa by applying at Chinese embassy in your home country.

 

Only legal working visa in China is Z visa and all other Chinese entry visas makes you illegal when caught working.

If you find a job, the employer is now able to change the Q visa to a Z with work permit.  I just had this done.  Not sure if it is normally like this, but since travel is so difficult now and schools are desperate for teachers, rules have changed a bit.

 

I came in on a Q-2 visa.  I had already talked to a few different schools that wanted to hire me, but only if I was already in country.  I didn't want to come over on just a "maybe" job offer, but once I had serious interest from 3-4 schools, I got a Q-2 visa (wife is Chinese) and headed over.  I accepted a job in Beijing and the school did all the work on changing my Q-2 visa to Z and WP.  They even handled getting the necessary documents (background check, notarized docs).  I just gave them what they asked for and they took care of the rest.

A:What is 'formal offer letter'? Only legally accepted employment offer I know is a Contract! ... so, you just don't accept and sign the contract with the lower salary! Email exchanges, verbal discussions and other promises between you and employer aren't legally binding, so legal action isn't recommended. Mainly legal effective thingy is employer's stamped and signed contract! ... and after you ink it, employer can/will use your signed contract to apply for all necessary documents at Chinese governmental agencies as Working permit and all ... It would be better for you to not accept employment with such an employer, IMO 'cause you'll experience similar troubles by employer not respecting the contract later on. -- icnif77
