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,

Agency must have School to sponsor Z, so I guess everything will be a bit shady, even for 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.

Kaiwen:

So you obviously know a different way? Please elucidate. If an agent gets a "z" visa invitation letter, they will have gotten it from a dodgy company that is "claiming" the person is working for them when actually this is not the case. That used to be possible but is certainly not legal. These days, the company would have to register the application with the Labor Supervision Bureau which indeed practically makes this method impossible. The other method would involve the old chestnut of bribes and "guanxi" but then you have to make it worth somebody's while to get involved in that. Not only is that very expensive and dangerous but is anything but legal. You would leave yourself open to all kinds of blackmail thereafter. So the answer your question Nicholas, I am in China but not in Dreamland unless you can give a clear LEGAL alternative to what I say.

get a uni teaching gig for a low salary and like 10 -12 hours a week. request that they shed your hours all on two days. that is the best you can do and you will have to teach in a small city or a low class uni

Kaiwen:

Indeed the safest and closest to being legal. However, whilst people do it, taking on the extra work is not technically legal and breaking the terms of the FEC/RP. But most people get away with a few extra hours on the quiet.

There is NOT a requirement for two years experience to be a teacher in China.  If you come with your husband under a different visa, make sure you have all the required documentation to get a Z visa when you find a job in China. It will make your life much easier.  To work in China, you MUST have a Z visa and only a Z visa.  -- nashboroguy
