Yes, but the Chinese govt is pushing legal teachers out in favor of illegal teachers. They're more controllable.

Anything lesser than the approved documentation such as Z visa, FEC etc is illegal. The again, do what you like, just don't get caught. If you are caught, you will be deported. If that's the risk you can afford to take then it's ok.

WOW, ok..

If all the foreigners in Beijing with part time jobs were to be arrested, then a lot of foreigners would be gone. Because a ton of us teach English, work in clubs, promote stuff, etc.. Guess we gotta be careful

Since it seems you are less looking for answers than comfort in your actions, then sure, it's perfectly legal, go ahead.

No, if you get a permit from your school

By Chinese law, you can work and receive salary only with Z visa/RP. 

 

Even one with Residence permit, and Contract witch stipulate (FT can work at other School, under condition FT is not late or miss classes at Prime job), my 'moonlightning' is considered illegal.

 

However, on such demand for FT in China, Gov. won't do much to prosecute 'illegal' FT, IMO.

Yes because you're not paying tax.  With a work visa they can keep a track on who should be paying taxes. On a student visa they assume you're just studying.  That's why in any country, you need a work visa to work.  Tax.

According to Chinese law, if you have a student visa, you are allowed to work up to 14 hours per week - LEGALLY, if you have permission from the university you're attending (and, of course, meeting other student obligations - attendance, grades, etc). You'd still need to meet the other legal requirements of being able to teach English in China - ie, bachelor's degree, 2 years work experience, etc.

 

So you would have no problems working part-time.

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
