Q: I have my residence permit of Chongqing but different work permit location?

Hi. I already have my residence permit in Chongqing but I don't get it why my training school can't give my work permit yet as it has been registered to their "sister company" in Beijing. Is it possible having these 2 permits from different cities? Or they lie?

The big training mills often do this. I know others who had work permits issued in Chongqing, Chengdu, Wuhan and Dongguan but worked in other provinces.
I'm no lawyer but as far as i know, you can only work for the entity who sponsors you in the location specified within the jurisdiction that issued the permit. I wonder if this causes any issues when you register with the police near your home?

Hi @TPP, the problem they have now is that they're shady 15 Chinese employees working with a less than of 8 foreign teachers distributed to different schools (I'm in the office). They have an agency working for our permits, and this info was only relayed to me after I asked them my work permit. After 5 months of working with them, I find it weird why they still haven't done with it yet, you know, changing the work permit location from Beijing to Chongqing where I am currently working - if in case it's possible?

 

I don't think that causes any issues when they register as I already have my residence permit now. So they're trying to trick me to, maybe, get hold of me?

Hi, I am in a similar position. I am due to come to China to teach English. I haven't ever been to China before so am not too familar with the laws. My Chinese employer has issued me a work permit that says Foshan but I am due to work in Shantou. They told me I will go to Foshan for my residence permit but they will change it to Shantou in the future. They originally were planning to apply for my RP in Guangzhou, (still not Shantou), but their visa license expired and would've taken some time to renew. Is this all legal? I am due to apply for my Z visa in a couple of days time so any information before that would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

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
