I had the same issue with the same bank. Unfortunately, there's no way it can be done in less than seven days.

I guess, if you go to the same Bank where you opened your account, they should give you new card on the spot.

 

However, that's only my theory. Whenever you must go to Chinese Bank and speak to the crew inside, you'll experience a lot of 'L hand around the ass to the R pocket ...' moves.  

 

Just go there and grab them ...  !

 

At first 'meiyou' you'll hear, just say:

'I ain't leaving the Bank without new card!' accompanied with determined stomp ...

Many times that can depend on the province you are in, the bank you are dealing with, and the type of visa you have. Over the past year the government has made some changes. One of them has to do with proof of source of income. But every government has this for tax purposes. For example: ABC is a bank that isn't familiar with dealing with foriegners in Shaanxi province. The CIBC, and the Bank of China have the most experience. So your better off in dealing with them. As for your card, better off just opening a new account with a different branch. In this case, your employer will have to come up with some paperwork. How much paperwork depends on the bank you choose.

I had my wallet stolen once and had the same problem as you, the acct was in a different city to the one I had recently moved to and I had to go back to the original branch in first city to do anything. It wasn't icbc but the crap service was the same.

 

Once they had verified my identity which was a nightmare in itself because the bank clerk who had originally input my details had put my first name in the surname box on the computer I would have had to wait however long to get a new card so I just withdrew all my money and walked out.

 

A bank that you can't access from  another city is useless, you might as well just use the trip there to pull your money out and put it in your other city acct.

In Beijing they can give you a new card on the same day but change the card number. Otherwise you have to wait 7 days to get a new card with the same number.

If you don't mind getting a replacement card with a different card number on the front - they can generally issue you a card that same day that you apply if you have your passport with you and the old card.  If you don't have your card, and want to replace it with the same card number, that can take 4 to 6 weeks.  Keeping a card number is contingent on whether or not you have a lot of accounts that utilize automatic bill pay, etc.
