Q: im going to renew my visa at the PSB soon. What should I tell them?

Bearing in mind I already renewed it once in foshan. They gave me a 3 month one .I told them then I was travelling around more with some friends and I'm still a student.

 

Now my visa runs out beginning next month. What should I tell them? better to say the same again? Or its because I want to stay longer with my girlfriend? which is true.

 

Which one is best to increase my chances of getting a longer duration? I don't know if they can actually decline the application....

You  will not get a longer duration and are lucky you got 3 months the first time. If you have no ties here you should either tell them you're writing a book about China's beauty or be prepared to come up with something, might want to use an agency

Normally they only give you 30 day extensions, to stay longer get a job, enroll in a university and get a student visa or use a agency and get a business visa.

The most number of visa extensions any PSB will grant you is 2, and normally for 30 days each.  So, if you already had one, and for 90 days, you are a lucky one.  what you will face is either another extension if you are still enrolled and a real student, or 10 days to leave China, get a new visa, and return.

Answer of the DayMORE >>
A: In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in releva
A:In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in relevance depending on the context and location. Here's a breakdown of each aspect:a) Getting the teaching job: Teaching certificates can certainly enhance your chances of securing a teaching position, especially in formal educational settings such as schools and language institutions. Many employers prefer candidates who have undergone specific training in pedagogy and instructional techniques, which these certificates often provide. However, other factors such as experience, references, and the demand for teachers in a particular area also play significant roles in the hiring process.b) Getting a higher salary than your uncertified competitors: In some cases, holding a teaching certificate can indeed lead to a higher salary compared to uncertified competitors. Many educational institutions have structured salary scales that take into account factors such as level of education, years of experience, and additional certifications. Holding a teaching certificate may place you in a higher salary bracket or make you eligible for certain salary incentives or bonuses. However, this can vary widely depending on the specific policies of the institution or organization.c) Getting promotions: Teaching certificates can be beneficial for career advancement and securing promotions within the field of education. They demonstrate a commitment to professional development and mastery of teaching skills, which are qualities that many employers value when considering candidates for leadership positions or administrative roles. Additionally, some promotions may require specific certifications or qualifications, making holding a teaching certificate essential for advancement in certain cases.Regarding which certificate yields better results, it largely depends on the specific requirements of the job market and the educational context in which you intend to work. For example:A Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) is often highly regarded in formal school settings and can be advantageous for those seeking positions in primary or secondary education.Montessori certification is valuable for individuals interested in working in Montessori schools or implementing Montessori principles in their teaching approach.A Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certificate is particularly relevant for those seeking to teach English to non-native speakers in international contexts or language schools.Ultimately, the best certificate for you will depend on your career goals, the specific requirements of the positions you're interested in, and the preferences of potential employers in your target job market. It's essential to research the requirements and preferences of employers in your desired field and tailor your qualifications accordingly. -- ruqaiya761
