Q: Is it serious?

Well,the school I'm currently  working on (some fixed date)having a government check this week.So,is this normal to inform the school before they come or can they even have a surprise visit?Does this imply the school pays money to the government and we are safe?

They come without warning. Have your documents and visa ready and on hand.

I carry passport and FEC with me anywhere I go. I am new to Xinjiang, and my passport was at the Police Station for Residence permit extension. It was actually in the Headmaster's drawer, butt....

 

Last Saturday, I took 40' ride with the bus to Urumqi. Police came on the bus, checking ID. I called School rep., and she had talk with the police officer, who let me continue the journey.

 

I feel less and less comfortable in China, while I am without my documents.

It is to check for illegal teachers, working without the correct documents. China is cracking down on illegal and unqualified teachers, as well as the schools and agents which employ them.

 

It sounds like they are giving a heads up, to give you a chance to run if you are illegal. It would save them a lot of paperwork. If the school hasn't done your paperwork, they probably don't care if you stay or not. It could also be the school's way of getting rid of unwanted teachers.

 

There are those on various forums who are constantly whining about not being allowed to work illegally, just because they have no skills or qualifications. Yet they continue to do the same thing over and over. These are the ones China wants to get rid of.

In my experience any company that gets a heads up warning will usually be fine because they have time to cover up their tracks and put on a fake show to the inspectors. I don't know if it's true or not but it's my opionon that if you get a heads about then the police aren't serious about taking any action and someone has most likely been bribed, that's just my opionon though and not based on any factual evidence.

 

 

It's the unannounced inspections you have to worry about, those are the ones where the police are trying to go after someone and make an example.

 

I've had a job in the past where they got heads up and I was simply told to not come in that day. Next day it was back to work as usual.

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
