Q: Work Z Visa and Foreign Expert Certificate?

I am a USA resident. and I was issued a Z visa on my passport. Entered and Exited China no problem. I recently quit my teaching position at a Universitiy in Zhengzhou,  I only stayed 2 weeks , I was lied to what the compensation package was. I was never issued an residency permit, nor given a Exit letter, The school of course threatened me of cancelation of my visa and "black list".   I am back in the US and been offered another job, but in a different province and city of China.  Several Questions. 

 1).  Will there be a problem with getting another Z visa, Foreigner Expert Certificate?

 2).  Do I already have this Foreigner Expert Certificate already?

 3)  What is the 4 papers that was originally given to me for me to apply for my original work Z visa here in the US. 

 4)  I know the school hates me, they will never give me an "Exit" letter. 

 5) Is there really a China Teachers " Black List"

 

Thanks you ahead of time for any help, as I want redemption and return to China.

Chances are very slim that you will have any problem.

 2).  Do I already have this Foreigner Expert Certificate already?

As far as I am aware, you need a new FEC for every employer.

 3)  What is the 4 papers that was originally given to me for me to apply for my original work Z visa here in the US. 

You will need to file all new paperwork.  (The schools will often help with this.)

 4)  I know the school hates me, they will never give me an "Exit" letter. 

If your contract had a probationary period, it is perfectly legal for you to quit without notice.  However, they are required by law to provide you with an exit letter.  Though, depending on the company you work for next, they may be able to work around it.

 5) Is there really a China Teachers " Black List"

The "Black List" is a myth.  There is little to no communication between employers in China.  They actually hope that competitors will hire bad employees so that their businesses will be damaged.

I agree with most of the post except for No. 5.  While there is little communication between employers here directly, there is now considerable communication between all of the different FEB's.  The entire FEC process has not been centrally computerized and the file of Mr. X is available is fully electronically available to FEB Y in any given city.  If the school pushes hard enough with the local FEB, it can have the local FEB enter all kinds of nefarious things into the system and when the next employer makes application to the new FEB, all of this will automatically turn up.  Can it damage a candidate these days?  It can.  Can it cripple a candidate?  That all depends.

You can seek help from some reliable agent in China. They are specialize in your case. But be careful, some agents are  profiteers.

Be careful of agents in China. All are profiteers -- it is the nature of their business.

There will be no trouble getting a new Z visa, in the US, 

You will have to get a new Experts Certificate with the new school, and new province

They are school and address specific.

 

Doubtful the school back listed you,  i am working with at least 3 teachers who were fired from other universities and could not get any reference from them.

 

Alot will depend also on where it is, and if the school has a lot of political connections to make things happen.  the right phone call from the right person makes many things happen

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
