The ubiquitous incompetence of the school may take several weeks/months to get their ducks in a row.

The government side of the process is relatively quick providing the school has done their part correctly.

Lesson 1 in China: chillax bro, shit will be done when it is done. And it will take longer than you expected and there is a strong probability that the person processing it will have different requirements than those stated on the outdated website. There is a strong probability that you may need to get other documents, which will later prove to be superfluous to the process. Here be your first lesson in how to Chinar.

That depends on where you apply, to some extent, and whether you have all of your documents in order. If you have all the correct paperwork, the visa application process only takes a few days.

The answer to that depends on soooo many different factors, but Scahtz and TPP both pretty much said it like it is above.

 

Generally though, if the school is a decent one, they're motivated and working to get you there asap and there are no hassles with your paperwork it doesn't take too long.

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
