I just know that foreigners can work and live in China. I am special on this.

The law is still being rewritten, as far as I'm aware, but allegedly it is only going to be for those working in the IT sector who have been working here legally (with a Z visa), for 10 years or more.

 

I don't know when the law comes into force nor how long after that it will take for the information to trickle down to the relevant sectors, but when it does I imagine your local PSB will be the place to go.

To the OP, the "application offer" is not closed but obtaining a "D" visa/permanent resident permit for the PRC is a very, very rare occurrence.  I understand that last year less than 400 "D" visas were granted for the entire country.  It is the same visa application form that you would use for an "L" or "F" visa.  Please check the website of the Chinese Embassy in your respective country of origin for more information.

the approval rate of a green card is over 50%. the majority of the people answering here are shills that do not want foreigners to get too close to China. ever notice how western government websites also try to talk you out of giving up your original citizenship? they want you to be their slave forever. kind of reminds me of the movie lazarus project. as soon as u realise how crooked western governments are, you just run as fast as you can.

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
