Q: How does a Work Permit visa go this expensive?

It pops up in my mind that "how dare you???" rhetorical question Greta Thunberg asks on a dramatic tone pleading for the climate change garbage at the UN.

 

Yeah, let's dare and try to imagine the chain of vicioussness that goes from the office that grants the Work Permit down to the employee, having in between a legion of predators ready to take their share to the tune of ten of thousands of moneys that must be paid. 

 

I have this friend from Germany who simply told me: "I pay only RMB 800 for my Visa, every year." Is that true at all? If so, then it begs for the question, this time not rhetorical anymore: how is it that the visa goes this sky rocket to cost up to 20000 and even more of the former Chinese Yuen? 

 

Another question that comes in line: Is China Government aware of the scheme that the Work Pemit visa triggers starting with  the very Government Officers down to the other end of the chain of food that is the employee? 

 

So who is it first to allow this high level of corruption? 

 

Let's see how this sham can be explained that a recent recruited employee is already a sold victim on the market of favors so much so these predators are capable of? How can a prospective employee smell where the sharks are and avoid them getting that job where he is to pay only the administration fees of the Work Permit visa jut like my friend from Germany. 

 

This isn't about native-non native dichotomy that I put about although it is very likely that the more suitable a future teacher is to that task from the perspective of right to legally teach in China, a native one must cost the visa even more. My two cents anyway.

 

As well,  I might be wrong and actually the non-native one be fooled around with an outrageously expensive visa because it is harder to get it on the same ground of legal status in which case it is sold body and soul as future prostitute to pay the pimp first the debts that  are generated before the arrival and at the expense of the teacher's life in this country afterwards. 

 

 

Is China Goverment aware of the fact that  its face is muddied with illegal doings, by the very own Chinese citizens that encourage this sort of corruption? Or is it natural and legal that a Work Permit visa cost this expsnisve? 

 

What's your input on a sensitive issue anyway?  

 

Seriously let's talk this the way it is. 

 

Thanks anyway.

I've never paid a cent in my 8-years of working in China (until 2017).

I spent monies during the visa runs to HK (housing&transport), but I was never asked to pay any Z visa/RP cost and I don't have a clue about the price for it. 

I've never used an agent, either.

My original visa was $168.00 (posted at the Chinese consulate)

Medical exam and residence permit was 800 RMB

Yearly renewals are 400 RMB

 

I've never seen what you're talking about. Are you going through agents? I did mine myself, armed with nothing more than the paperwork provided by my employer.

What are you talking about? ¥20000?  No. ¥800. If you’re paying an agent ¥20000 then you need to find a different one. 

PulSartre:

This is what agents come out to admit, as a result of conversations I had with two of the many out there. Based on these conversations and the process to move on from your employer to a new one, I come to understand that Work Permit visa is traded this dearly through third parties. Therefore, my inquiry into the chain food of the system of corruption that has at the core trading with China's Government official documents perpetrated by the very Chinese employers and officers responsible to observe the Chinese laboral laws.

PulSartre:

Spider, I actually don't need any of the agents at all. The whole point is around the scheme that build up corruption and predatory network between the two ends of the teaching industry routine: China Government and teachers. All who are in between, who use and abuse the official documents are Chinese people, stealing their own country while they pretend to be stollen by the foreigners. The Work Permit visa is just one of the many other topics I will go about further more.

Im not sure about that price....but if the agent is doing everything and its shady it can get up there in price. For example, if the agents is getting you a business visa or a student visa or a work visa and any kind of visa you dont qualify for, and they provide the company, hence its not something you are involved with or you are working at that company, they just provide the service and paperwork and do all the legwork. The price can get up there.

PulSartre:

It makes sense that too.

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
