It is illegal to hire foreign domestic workers in China.  They used to bring in foreign aupairs and maids into the country by saying they were teachers, but they have really clamped down on that.  If someone tried to hire you, they would not be able to get you a legal visa and you would be in danger for working illegally at any time.

 

In my opinion, it just isn't worth the risk.

It is absolutely not true that working as an au pair in china is illegal, because you are not hired as a domestic worker. But I do agree that it is nearly impossible for families alone to get you a legal visa.they need a trusted agency to do it for them. It is not illegal because it is not considered a job, but rather a cultural exchange program that comprises language and culture classes. There are Indeed strict rules regulating this field and even a China Au Pair Association. The reason why I know this is because I work for an au pair agency that does exactly this. We promote au pair cultural exchange programs for young foreign people who are interested in Chinese culture and want to come to china and live with a Chinese family. If you are interested in knowing more let me know.

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
