Q: Is there any way to get a Z-Visa if you are overage?

I have worked in China for almost 10 years and taught there for 8. I started teaching at age 58 and got a Z-visa at ages 60-61-62-63-64-65-66-67 I just turned 69 and want one last teaching position at a middle-school, high-school-university 

I have skills few others have:

I teach Critical Thinking, Lateral Thinking, Creative Thinking for SAT and TOFEL I also teach Art and Design and a special course on Developing Advanced Creativity,

I thought that isn't possible once you are older than 60. Law states, you cannot get Working permit after age of 60 years.

 

Which city/province did you work all these years as an overaged?

I have known a few people,who have carried on working,or even started a new job over 60,the problem is company insurance,just get your own insurance,some companies will give you a one off payment or slightly higher salary to offset your insurance payment,

Apparently recruiters in Shaanxi province can get Z visas. I would also like to know if there are other jurisdictions in China that can get an age waiver?

It can take some bread to achieve, however an M Business V- has a similar function, but you may have to Taco Bell every 60 days.  I've heard of 3 year to 10 year V- that are Business V-

Anyway.. Old question, but one answer would be to consider the green card option.

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
