Q: What's the average salary of locally hired embassy staff in China?

I know it must vary from embassy to embassy but is it in the 10-15K range, the 15-20K or 20+K?

I only can tell you about those local Chinese who work at the US Consulate in Guangzhou.  Not about any other Embassy or Consulate, but it could be the same for all.


The Chinese nationals who work behind the bullet proof glass at the US Consulate in Guangzhou DO NOT WORK directly for the US Government.  They work and they are hired and trained by the Chinese Government.  They are not paid directly by the US Government, the US pays the Chinese Government, and they in turn pay the workers.  

There is not a flat fee for all to my knowledge, it will depend on the job the person does, and the years at it. And it is not at the level of US nationals if they were to work there, much, much lower.  

I would say in the 3 to 8 Rmb per month range.

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
