Q: What happens to my z visa if the entity that was planning to employ me changes their mind?

I signed a contract with a school and they had applied for my work permit. On Tuesday I received my z visa but my employer in China said they no longer wanted to employ me.  Will they cancel my z visa or am I able to use it for another school who is willing to hire me.

What a strange user name you have.

Your Z visa is tied to the company who sponsored you. So, unfortunately, you need to start the process all over again with another company who offer you a job.

Your local Chinese consulate will be able to cancel your current Z visa if you explain why etc.

Good luck.

Also, can you ask Mr Putin to refrain from (allegedly) using exotic substances in the UK? Stalins henchmen used an ice pick. Much less damaging to the local police than exotic chemicals .

Not likely they will. what exactly is the time line. You've got your Z visa. Are you back in China? The school has spent thousands of Rmb and many hours to get all those documents to get you approved for a Z visa. The PSB will be very interested to know what happened. 

The school won't want to go through that process as the school will face allot of penalties as well as costing it its license to hire a foreign teacher  (see the contract) Your Z visa gives you 60 days to do something. By the way, if your contract isn't real. Then the PSB will find out. This is something else the school won't want the PSB to know about.

@Stiggs:

 

Don't you think shitty things as 'no airport pick-up at arrival' and similar don't happen?

 

But, once School sponsors WP and other matters concerning Z visa pick-up, School can't just say: 'We don't need you anymore ...', because if they do, they'll lose their 'laowai hiring license' beside monetary penalty.

School is dealing in such an example with Gov. agency (who approved WP) that none of the Schools in China is looking forward to deal with.

I usually got small problems at Schools sorted out just with Q to the Head: 'Do you have a phone no. of SAFEA?' and 'Do you know where they're located?'

If I wouldn't be so keen on complaining to Gov. about School's Contract disrespect, I would have takin'-it-up-the-ass at every single School I've worked in China.

I think, it is wise to dial Gov. and OP will receive help as I did many times about which I've always posted here. 

You might didn't experienced similar problems in Chinese Schools as I did, but I got off and I happily posted here, so everybody else could do the same.

What thick me off is ''postings which aren't true'' as Allan's '' .... get new Z sponsor and apply for new Z ...'', which is misleading statement/advice by the poster who doesn't have any experience with similar matters.

You just went along for the ride with Scottish.

It would make me extremely happy if I could find School in China to work there for few years. The longest I've worked at one School was 18 months in Kaifeng Uni, and then I had to quit because of School's Contact disrespect.

I've seen a lot of China in 8 years, but who is looking for moving from one place to another every few months and all other BS you experience when you change your employer.

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
