If I remember correctly, an American Notary does not certifies as to the veracity of what it is written in the document to be notarized, but only as to the identity of the one signing the document.  So, you can write one stating that you are King Solomon, 500 years of age, and as long as you sign it in front of the notary, and can prove your name is King Solomon, he will affix the seal to it.

So, your chances of locating an American Notary in Chongqing, or in all of China, are just about nill, unless you take the document to the US Embassy in Beijing or one of the four Consulates.  Try to0 locate a Chinese notary in your city, and see if he will notarize the document after witnessing your signature and showing him proper ID.

This worked for me with some SS forms I had to fill out and send back, I used a Chinese notary and no one said anything about it.

The only way to get an American Notary is by going to Chengdu to the American Consulate.  I had to have some things notarized to sell property in the USA.  This is the only place, legally, to get it done.  Beware of scams in CQ. 

 

But, be aware, a lot of things CAN be notarized by Chinese authorities.  Go to any Notary office in CQ and ask.  Take a friend who is fluent in English and Chinese.

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
