you might want to invest a time flux capacitor , one deloren and hit 85 mph !!!

 

i wouldnt bother its really expensive and illegal, its illegal to work for any one apart from the company that sponsors your visa, and they are cracking down on this along with other things starting July the 1st!! i think there was one company that could get you a Z visa but it was around 20k,

As I  know, 'work visa sponsor' must be Chinese Co., 'authorized to hire foreigners'. Only Chinese Schools qualify, not an Agencies. 

 

China Visa Agency in HK for more info:

 

http://www.fbt-chinavisa.com.hk

 

This is web link of Schools in China, authorized to hire foreigners:

 

http://www.anesl.com/schools/info.asp?province=Jiangsu&keyword=Universit...

 

Change parameters in the web link : 'Province' and keyword: 'School's level'.

 

 

Good luck!

The only way you can legally work a a freelancer is to register a company with you as the company legal representative. Unless you have a business licence, the company stamps (chops) and various other documentation, you have no chance. You cannot get a 'z' visa through a visa agent.

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
