They don't want you here. The coof has been the perfect excuse to get rid of as many foreign devils as possible.

Wanna be an ESL sexpat? Yeah, nah.

Unless you're in country already the possibility is tiny. And how much must your life suck at home to be so desperate to get back into china? Give yourself an uppercut.

I would agree, as Sandnose mentioned, that Covid is a great excuse for the CCP to prevent foreigners from entering the country and, in their view, undermine the ultranationalistic mindset that has pervaded the entire country these last several years. But business is business, and there are thousands of schools and businesses in China that need foreigers to generate profit. I don't see China extending this poicy into the next school year. At the very least, I think they will allow a set amount of qualified foreigners in and the already absurdly strict Z visa process will be that much more intense.

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
