the z visa is for working at a speserfide work place.
unless you plan on working for her familys bussiness it won't help.

make sure her family owns a brewery as it will help on Bad China Days

Just got married and could get the Spouse Visa...actually it's just an extension of the tourist visa anyways........ the Z Visa is different and really the only one you should have if u plan to work.

A work visa will allow you to legally work in China for one year periods (can be renewed if contginue to work at authorized places) provided within 30 days of entering China, and prior to start working (not me, the Law says that) you go to PSB and obtain a work permit and a residence permit.

Marriage has nothing to do with getting it or not getting it.

You must have a work visa and the related permits even if you do physical work for no payment,  ie. a family business.  The importance is not if you received a salary, or not, or how much.  The importance is the physical act called WORK.

If you marry a Chinese citizen, then you can obtain a residence permit through your marriage. Then you don't need to obtain a z visa. Your residence permit will allow you to work or study and live in China.

Be careful though, that you must marry on Chinese soil and not abroad.  You must get all of the proper documents done.

You can get Chinese citizenship but you would have to denounce your citizenship to your home country.

It is the only option when it comes to marriage

Wow, from some of these posts I've read now and in the past, isn't there another way to stay in China, non educated teachers, foreigners with no money for businesses and they want to get married to stay. WTF, get a life

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
