Q: Non-native English teacher in Jiangsu? Has anyone recently got his/her Z visa in Jinagsu?

I have been trying to verify my current employer who claims a non-native English teacher cannot work legally in Jiangsu province (Suzhou area). I obviously match all the formal requirements ie. BA, work experience and TEFL. All reliable answers are much appreciated especially from a non-native teacher who got his/her Z-visa within the last couple of months.

I spoke to SAFEA officer in Nanjing two weeks ago, and he told me Non-Native English teacher in Jiangsu can't get Working permit. He adviced me to return to EU, despite I'm not applying for new RP, but extending RP since 2011. 

 

However, I came to that info from different 'angle'.

I signed Contract with Taizhou Minxing Private School, and arrived to the School with valid RPermit.

 

School gave me working schedule one day after my arrival.

I asked them: 'When will you take me to the Hospital for MExam (which is mandatory at RP extension)?'

A: 'We don't know yet!'

 

Me: 'This is my Bank account, you can deposit my salary there!'

A: 'Ohh, you'll get your pay in cash every month!'

 

Minxing School isn't authorized to hire FT. They just burned my RP.

I'm facing application for new WPermit (new employer in diff. Province), and new Z with HK pick-up, if lucky.

Minxing, Taizhou No.1 Middle School isn't on the Angelina Cafe's list of Schools in China authorised to hire FT', and all their actions during my stay, and at departure show 'they can't employ FT'.

However, I never checked them against the list, when I signed Contract in May this year. I trusted scummy agent with handle 'echo' from Nanjing. I reported her actions to SAFEA.

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
