Q: What is needed to get back in China?

I'm in South Africa. I have valid Chinese Work and Residence Permits. I'm busy looking for new employment in China.

What steps must I take before I can book a ticket back to China - apart from Covid test and Health Declaration form?

I lost jobs previously since we couldn't get back to China before. Agents encourage me to please get back into China asap, since many employers still want to employ foreighners who are inside China already.

I don't get any response from Chine Consul in South Africa.

I doubt that anyone really knows enough to give you a proper answer yet, it's a new, constantly changing situation.

 

China recently said they'll start allowing people with valip RPs back into the country but I haven't heard much more about it since.

 

My guess would be it will be people with existing jobs rather than new jobs though, limited in numbers, decided on a case by case basis and probably aimed more at critical type jobs rather than English teachers.

Response from anybody else instead of Chinese Embassy in SA doesn't count, IMO.

 

New British Consul landed in Bj yesterday. Have a read at requirements (15-days quarantine at the landing ...) in China:

Apart from the whole not wanting foreigners here thing, some stories that the croup is popping up again in a few places. Anecdotally, here on the ground, it depends upon where you enter the country. The response can vary daily and from 2 weeks in a skanky hotel to a raft of medical evidence and checks to go back to whence you came.

My personal guess is that it's a wait and see what happens during the winter.

I suggest you put off your plans for at least another 6 months and monitor the wechat news and reddit r/China visa groups.

Absence of dignity, willingness to be treated like dirt and a strong stomach will help more than anything.

A guy is know has been stranded in the US for months, he has the valid RP and everything and is working on getting back to China now. Last time I talked to him he seemed fairly hopeful it would be soon so presumably he's had some encouraging noises from whoever he's dealing with, or at least hasn't been shot down.

 

Logistically, there must be a lot involved in letting people in again. Pre -testing,testing on arrival, quarantine arrangements, security, prioritising who comes first etc... I doubt they'd let random red stampers do that kind of thing, it would be people higher up the ladder. Bureaucracy never moves quickly.

 

And then, with the recent spike in numbers everywhere it wouldn't surprise me if China is quietly re-thinking their 'let em back in' policy.

my question is how can I get out of China? I want to go to Australia or Canada where have less covid

Sandnose:

The australian border is effectively closed and visa applications aren't being accepted. Forget that plan. I don't know about Canada but I remember the Chinese government issued a travel warning a few months ago.

Can you swim?

I thought China had all but eradicated the croup. Only those filthy Anglo ideologists are still spreading the plague.

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
