Q: Termination of contract and visa

Recently, another school has offered me a job, and I'm thinking about taking the offer. Is there a possibility that the embassy will ask questions why or create other problems if I terminate the contract earlier (visa and FEC will be cancelled as well) and reapply for a new Z visa? Btw, I have many other visas in my passport already, so I'm afraid they will refuse it.

I think you're confused about how the system works....

 

firstly you don't have a visa anymore, you have a resident permit. 

 

You also don't need to apply for a new Z-visa. 

 

Basics CS of the process is:

1) Resign with minimum 30 days notice. 

2) current employer has to give you release letter and receipt to show your FEC was cancelled. They don't need to cancel your resident permit but if they ask to then you can get a 30-day stay visa. 

3) New employer applies for new work permit for you (new system in place from 1st April). Then you apply for new resident permit. 

 

They won't care how many old visas you have as long as last one was your resident permit

1. You must have reason why are you terminating the Contract as 'party A's Contract violations' as 'late salary deposits', 'apartment no suited for living', 'required to work more hours than per Contract' and similar.

2. Find new job/Residence permit sponsor, sign Contract with new employer.

3. Submit Resignation notice to your present employer. I always quit with 30-days notice, unless Contract violations are grave and require immediate termination.

4. Your employer must give you Release letter and FEC Cancel certificate in 30-days after your last working day.

With both documents handy, your new Residence permit sponsor will be able to extend your RP and you won't be required to exit China and apply for new Z.

However, if you wish to exit China and apply for new Z (nobody does!), then you will also need Release letter and FEC Cancel cert. at your new RP sponsor/employer.

 

You might expect troubles at new Z application, if you will terminate the Contract without the cause.

 

For new Z visa or RP extension you must have one page in your passport, free of stamps, blank.

Also you'll be required to get all of your documents authenticated by the Chinese Embassy in your home country:. 1. Degree 2. TEFL or better 3. Reference letters of 2 years 4. Security check.

So to avoid the April 1st visa policy hassle, suck it up, stay at the same company because I'm telling you that you are really hurting your chances of getting that job you want because of the new visa requirements and time waits for no one, meaning you won't have enough time to fly home, finish authentificating and than make it back in time for the new job.

So stay put! No job is perfect. This is called maturing in a situation like this.

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
