Yes, it is and your employer should organise and pay for it.

And that, my good man, is why I'm going to bastard Urumqi on Sunday.

If you want it for more than six months, you must be prodded and stabbed.

I recently went for my medical check.....I wish that they wouldn't get the most inexperienced nurse they can find to take blood. It took her 6 attempts to find a vein. I had more blood dripping off my arm than went into the vials.

I've renewed my RP twice in Zhejiang....haven't had to redo the medical exam.  This "requirement" seems to be really dependent on location and the PSB officer processing the application.

From the answers provided above it seems to be yet another case of wank wank, money in the bank.

For Xinjiang, the answer to questions about 'why' is invariably "Xinjiang is special place".

Perhaps it's different in your neck of the woods.  Just leave the matter in the hands of your employer and let them get to the bottom of it.

Depends on the city. I haven’t had to redo the check in Guangzhou but a friend had to redo it in Beijing. So pretty much it is arbitrary like most rules in China.

As I know, you can avoid doing MExam, if your latest exam isn't older than 6 months.

 

I'm in Fujian, and for new Z/RP, I gave them (to HK Embassy) and to School at my return to China, MExam from Taizhou, Jiangsu, with date May 15th, 2014.

I know this is an old question, but just to add another experience for the record.

I am redoing my employment RP in GZ. Not changing jobs, no medical required it seems. The HR woman gave me my passport reciept today from the PSB, and a new 2 year WP chop in my brown book. I have not even had to go to the PSB in person.

Lol, I have been pestering the HR woman for weeks to sort my stuff out as my RP expires at the end of this month. She just kept saying no problem, no problem.

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
