Q: Overstay!! Can You help me?

Hi everybody. I overstayed my visa one day (actually few hours!). I crossed the border in Shenzhen to go to Hong Kong. They stopped me. I explained why i overstayed (cos i got some problems with the train), I also showed them the train ticket. But after 1 hour they let me go without saying anything. Now I'm still in Hong Kong and I just would like to know...if I go back to my country (Italy) n I will apply for visa to come back, they could reject it?! There will be any problem? Please help me!

If they did not give you a monetary fine, or asked you to sign any papers, you should have no worries.  I was late myself 23 minutes about 3 or 4 years ago and got two visas afterwards without a hitch

Just give them a Moon Cake with about 1000 rmb in it.  Everything will always be ok in China if you do this.

Only a problem if they give you a sticker/stamp in your passport that you overstayed.

A: You can work only if you hold a work permit and residence permit yours
A:You can work only if you hold a work permit and residence permit yourself. The same conditions for all foreigners apply. You have a job and the company can legally employ foreigners. Work permit is tied to that company and location that you are actually working and the position matches. You can't just work in China if you hold a dependence visa or residence permit.  -- jmintzis
