1.- Of course, have the proper documentation, like a valid passport, a work visa, a resident permit, a health certificate, etc.

2.- Have work experience of interest to Chinese entrepeneurs or companies.

3.- Receive a work offer to your liking, with a satisfactory benefit package to you, in an area you are willing to live.

 

I will give you an example, a friend of mine from USA married a Chinese Lady, and moved to China.  He had a lifetime experience in Quality Control.  He managed to contact an organization with a few factories in China, mostly around Guangzhou/Shenzhen area.  He was hired as a foreign consultant to visit these factorie, set up an Statistical analysis Quality Control program, and assure management it was working and adhered to, so quality levels will improve and be maintained.  He is doing that now, has a salary satisfactory to him, works from Monday thru Friday at different locations, back home on week ends.  All his travel expenses are reimbursed by the company.  I told him he has it made.

Good luck to you, and if you do not try, it will not be done.

I note that your username is Josephineliu. Would it be safe to assume that you are coming at this from a different angle as a Chinese employer who wishes to hire a foreigner?

 

If that is the case, then the basic requirements are the same. You need to apply for a work permit and 'Z' visa invitation letter for this person. It is hard to say what you need for the process because the Labor Supervision rules are often interpreted differently in different locations. It is best to approach the Labor Supervision Bureau yourself and ask them.

 

The foreign national will probably need support finding suitable living accommodation, setting up bank accounts, installing phone lines and internet etc.? But beyond that, if you allow for a complete culture shock that the person may encounter, there should be no great demands. Just accept that things are very different here to the west and a foreigner arriving here for the first time will need time to adapt to customs and practices.

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
