Q: What are the chances of my residence permit transfer getting rejected?

<p>I am transferring my work permit to a new job in the same city. I was able to obtain a release letter from my previous employer without too much trouble. However, the release letter states that I was late to class and may also state that I was fired. In other words, the release letter is a negative review. I won’t get into how this is a different release letter than the one &nbsp;I signed. Suffice to say, do I still have a good chance of my work permit transfer getting approved? I have read on this forum before that the recommendation part doesn’t matter so long as the other legal requirements are met. I love my new employer and I really want to work with them!</p>

Your new employer should be working on the residence permit for you. That is usually taken care of by them. As long as the new employer wants you, there should not be any issues.

@Stiggs that’s good to know. I haven’t had any legal trouble in China so I hope it will be ok. This is an unfortunate situation where the school presented me with one letter (a clean one) and then sent me this crap instead. The letter even mentions that I was uncooperative during the epidemic procedures. Really shady stuff. I have a clean health record and of course I have followed all directions for testing.

 

The last part in particular is bad because, as you mentioned, the gov would only want to get involved if there would be a threat to China as a whole. While the school’s claims are fraudulent, my issue is that the gov will simply deny the application out of precaution.

 

@icnif77 its a fair question. The reason why I’m asking is that if the risk of this not working is high, I’ll try and offer money to the previous school to get them to sign their original RL. You’re obviously right that nothing is 100% but I did pose this question in the hopes that someone with background knowledge could help.

 

Are you learning English yourself right now? I’m a math teacher but I’m sure I could find time to help you.

Release letter contains info mostly about you completed the contract and you are free of any commitments to your last RP sponsor, i.e. you are free to go/transfer WP/RP ... 

 

I've never read any 'cause they are all written in Chinese. All of my RLs were very short, 2-3 lines the most.

I would say, Recommendation letter on other hand, describes what kind of teacher/worker you are.

 

'Getting fired ...' would state that you didn't complete the contract, but I assume, if that would be the case, you wouldn't get Release letter.

 

I would say, there is nothing to worry about. Release letter must be presented to the gov. org., which will complete RP/WP transfer, i.e. paper work.

 

Good luck!

Yes icnif77 that’s what I believed, and I have read and asked many sources now, all of which are agreeing with you. Even the HR found their release letter strange as it was essentially a negative review included. But as everyone has told me, it doesn’t appear to matter so long as my new employer wants to hire me (they do).

 

China, am I right?!?

With the new system, if you leave under bad terms, it can, theoretically, impact your ability to get RPs in the future.

icnif77 the real issue isn’t if the job will hire me or not; the issue is whether the government will approve the transfer of the WP/RP. From what I understand, it won’t be a problem, but honestly your last comment confused me. I don’t think the government will care, but then again, the release letter is a bad review and it seems there’s a risk the government will not approve that.

 

Can you provide any insight on that specific question, and not on whether other schools will hire me?

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
