Q: How easy is it to switch to a working visa from a student visa?

Hi. I'm here on a student visa and I was just wondering, in case I want to get a full time job as a teacher here, how easy is it to change my visa to a Z type working visa while still remaining in China during the whole time?

Will I be forced to return to my home country and reapply for entrance to China or can it be done here?

 

Thanks

You must get Z visa sponsor (School) first!  School will apply for Working permit, and other stuff at Foreign Expert Bureau.

 

If your School is powerful enough, they might convince PSB (exit-entry Police) to issue 'Z' pick-up in HK. You must exit China for Z. 

As I read, PSB in bigger cities always require Z pick-up at Chinese Embassy in your home country (Tianjin PSB 2Y ago)

 

Z pick up (converting your student visa to Z) cannot be done in China.

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
