Registering a business is very expensive depending on the type of business.  If you are working for someone, perhaps they can help you get a visa.

 

Otherwise there is no other way to really extend your visa.  And when things get politically awkward between your country and China it can get even more difficult.

i met some freelance photographers before. you can look into trying that route. but i have no clue as to how to go about it. maybe you could be an expat's "wife" i mean just on paper.

You may wish to try one of the several more adept visa agents in Hong Kong.  A few of them have been recommended on this site previously.  If they can't help, then probably no one else can.

If the PSB do not accept your extension application, then other ways are illegal.

 

Register a company in China can help you get the Z visa, then apply for resident permit to get rid of the visa extension problem. As I know, for Philippines passport holders, it is not difficult now to get Z visa. I have a Filipino friend just got one last month.

 

For registration, you can choose the low cost type like representative office.

The best thing for you to do is to have a school or company  that can give you work visa, so you will have peace of mind otherwise you will be battling with visa every time. There's no other way except to secure work visa. God bless...

If you can get a student Visa then apply for a Working Visa, this is how it worked for a Philippino friend of mine.

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
