Q: Rejected for work permits because of one FEB comment?

I found out that my old university in China posted some negative comment on my FEB immigration file when I left last year. I thought everything was fine and we communicated as I left. I even got my apartment deposit back after leaving. Yet now, I got rejected for two different work permits - one then the second. They finally told me my last university, in Hefei, had posted something bad about me when they cancelled my work permit last year. Now, I can never get approved for another work permit again. I had no idea. And I contacted all my old bosses but they won't respond! I can't believe they would do this so coldly and not even tell me or tell me why. Does anyone know a good lawyer that can help? Or have you experienced this? I am not blacklisted, and my record shows I have done nothing illegal. Yet the FEB won't say what the negative filing says. I can't believe it.

If your country's passport changes the passport number when you renew the passport, you can try to apply for a new passport and get a new number with it and apply for another job but this time around don't give a history about where you used to work. Your information might come up again, but it's worth a try if you want to continue working here. Just leave it off your résumé.. 

 

Like some of already told you lawyers even sit down with one cost you over 5000 RMB. If you're going to try to fix this, you need to fix it with FEB directly, and try to prove your case. Only the person behind the desk can fix this for you.. try to bring a Chinese friend and politely talk about this issue and it might do wonders for your situation, but given the time you have on a visa to stay in this country, you probably are already on the outside looking in. 

 

If you're married here and you're on the Q visa just keep trying to talk to the office fix whatever happened. At the same time try the passport trick. If you are going to go through with the passport idea, then I would suggest getting a new Chinese visa for staying in China like a tourist visa or family visa, then switch to a working visa. That way the new passport already has a history of a visa that's been turned into a working visa. Meaning that this would be a clean history and no history of your previous passport number would need to be involved but if there's a visa that you're using now in the old passport, of course it'll be tied to the transfer of a working permit and working visa best to start clean.

Passport change might work, but what about the same name on the new passport?

I've always had a doubt at passport change 'cause the name remains the same.

I've never tried that though, because I've never had a similar troubles ... and in my country, you can't just change a passport on the whim. It must be damaged, lost/stolen or near the expiration date, so change is warranted.

At my time in China, I've contacted FEB often and I've always encounter Chinese FEB agents with fluent English ... FEB on the provincial level, thou.

However, I was residing in China.

It might be difficult to contact FEB from outside of China. In that example, Chinese friend living in China could do a wonders, but it's still not a simple task ... at contacting and get reply from the FEB.

Lawyer? You ought to be kidding ...

 

Even if you'll win the dispute, you won't get a new job in China, which pays more than 1000 - 1200 EUR per month ... and prepare to shell out 1000 EUR at the minimum, so Chinese lawyer will say "Good morning!" to you.

ROI (Return on Investment) is utmost important in Stock market trading world ... 

 

Get a lawyer outside of China and if she/he will accept the case ( ... which I doubt!), you might have a slight chance.

 

Good luck!

Answer of the DayMORE >>
A: In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in releva
A:In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in relevance depending on the context and location. Here's a breakdown of each aspect:a) Getting the teaching job: Teaching certificates can certainly enhance your chances of securing a teaching position, especially in formal educational settings such as schools and language institutions. Many employers prefer candidates who have undergone specific training in pedagogy and instructional techniques, which these certificates often provide. However, other factors such as experience, references, and the demand for teachers in a particular area also play significant roles in the hiring process.b) Getting a higher salary than your uncertified competitors: In some cases, holding a teaching certificate can indeed lead to a higher salary compared to uncertified competitors. Many educational institutions have structured salary scales that take into account factors such as level of education, years of experience, and additional certifications. Holding a teaching certificate may place you in a higher salary bracket or make you eligible for certain salary incentives or bonuses. However, this can vary widely depending on the specific policies of the institution or organization.c) Getting promotions: Teaching certificates can be beneficial for career advancement and securing promotions within the field of education. They demonstrate a commitment to professional development and mastery of teaching skills, which are qualities that many employers value when considering candidates for leadership positions or administrative roles. Additionally, some promotions may require specific certifications or qualifications, making holding a teaching certificate essential for advancement in certain cases.Regarding which certificate yields better results, it largely depends on the specific requirements of the job market and the educational context in which you intend to work. For example:A Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) is often highly regarded in formal school settings and can be advantageous for those seeking positions in primary or secondary education.Montessori certification is valuable for individuals interested in working in Montessori schools or implementing Montessori principles in their teaching approach.A Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certificate is particularly relevant for those seeking to teach English to non-native speakers in international contexts or language schools.Ultimately, the best certificate for you will depend on your career goals, the specific requirements of the positions you're interested in, and the preferences of potential employers in your target job market. It's essential to research the requirements and preferences of employers in your desired field and tailor your qualifications accordingly. -- ruqaiya761
