If found, you will be detained, and probably deported within a few days, maybe also a fine.  Of course, it will be a few years (if ever) until you will be able to get a visa to enter China again.  So, DO NOT TELL ANYONE !

 

And as for the company that employs you, they will be subject to a fine (in one case I do know of, before the crackdown started, the fine was 100,000 Rmb plus lost license to hire foreigners) among other possible things.  But, considering that this is China, you might not even show up on their books.

 

May I offer a solution to you ?.  ASAP get the required documentation from your employer for a work visa.  Once you have them, do fly to Hong Kong and request one, it will take at least two days in HKG to do so.  One day to file (early in the morning), next day to pick up visa

Better do not listen too much to other expat's advice. Scare the newbies seems to be the game here and on other websites. The solution to every visa problem in China lays in finding a local agency with the right connections and pay what it costs.

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
