1.- With a residence permit, because you are married to a Chinese Lady, you can live legally in China for many years as long as you stay married and renew the permit as indicated as of today.  Tomorrow, I have no idea.

2.- NO !.

3.- NO !

4.- Waiting for September 1 and after go to th Chinese Embassy in your home country and fill out the forms and present required documentation.

Now, why you you want to apply to a Q visa, if you have a renewable residence permit ?

Answer to question 1: you may not live permanently in China. -- You might get a 'permanent residency permit' provided you have been married for at least 5 years. Furthermore, you have to show that out of every year [12 months] you have resided in China for at least 9 months.

I emailed that Law website thats been floating around.

 

The rumor that you can apply for a spousal visa that allows you to work, maybe on a so called Q1 visa is false.

 

BUT BUT BUT, I will still hold out for hope that someday married foreigners can work and support their family on a spouse visa.

 

No harm in hoping right?

A:My friends who are managing schools still can't recruit from outside of China because of the borders being closed, as far as I know that doesn't look like it's going to change anytime soon. If you have a current existing residence permit etc you can re-enter the country, going through the usual quarantine process obviously but no new visas are being issued. I don't know about business visas but I suspect it wouldn't be much different. For up to date info you could probably contact the Chinese embassy in your country. -- Stiggs
