I'm sorry, but it is very difficult, if not impossible, to get a Z without the release letter. Your past employer is legally obligated to give you one, though, provided that you either served out the terms of your contract, used the exit clause in your contract, or basically ended your employment in any way that is not a midnight run. If you terminated your contract legally, then you can, in fact, squeeze the papers out of them using the PSB bureau that granted them (I'm not saying it's easy, but you could). If you made a midnight run, your employer is not obligated to give you the documents. I am not saying this to be snotty--I just don't want you paying a visa agency for a service, when they will then just throw up their hands after taking your money, and tell you that they cannot perform. Shan Shai is the agency I had friends use in Chengdu...they never had a problem with it.

Find another employer and do a Hong Kong run, if you start from scratch you do not need the release letter and as of now, Chengdu is not on the list for foreigners to go back to their home country to do the Z visa

A:A few years ago, Filipno teachers were beginning to find acceptance in training schools. I think there were special requirements for them to legally get to teach in China. I know that many Filipino teachers found their way into training schools in the southern regions of China.  I do not think they get the same salary as a typical foreigner teacher from a western nation. The benefits are not as numerous too. They are asked to work longer hours. Basically, they are seen as cheap labor, compared to the standard ESL teacher. I have heard of some manipulation of visas and holding of passports. In other words, they are often treated as third-class citizens.  I know of one training school in South China that treats Filipinos very well, but it seems to be an exception than the norm. Extremem caution and due diligence is required for these teachers.  -- nashboroguy
