It is still possible for persons from certain African countries to obtain gainful employment in China but the process is fraught with many, many pitfalls.  Of the ten Africans that I have known over the past year, three managed to obtained true legal visas and gainful employment; three others put themselves at the mercy of various visa agents (quite a costly process) and the remainder, after searching high and low and often being severely cheated in the process, had to leave the country.  Of those, one was actually deported.  Exercise serious good care and prudence; work only with known visa providers and agents; look for government schools in the hinterlands, etc.

You should have passports from native English speaking countries such as the UK, USA, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Ireland and South Africa in order to find a good teaching job and for visa purposes as well. Besides, you should have at least 2 years teaching experience (preferably outside your country) and your accent should be clear and similar to British or American's. As you are from Cameroun, your tertiary credentials should be from native English speaking countries (mentioned above). Finally, work visas are processed in teacher's home country. So, ensure you get a Chinese employer that is willing to send you a work visa letter while in your country. Heed this advice and you will have a wonderful stay in China. Best of luck!

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
