Q: Work (Z) Visa still good/out of country/no employer

I currently still have my Z Visa; I was working for a bad employer. Residency permit and expert certificate was canceled.

 

I am out of China, my Z visa is still valid, how should I go about finding a new employer?

 

A: Go back to China and do it in country?

 

B: Go through the whole process again?

You must go through the whole Z visa process again.

 

Z visa is valid for one entry to China in 3 months.

 

After you enter China, Z visa is not valid anymore, and it's replaced with RPermit.

The Z visa stopped being "good" as soon as you stepped onto the mainland first time around and prior to applying for the residence permit. As others have said, you would have to get another Z visa with a new employee. The difficulty you are likely to face if you have a canceled RP in your passport is when you apply for another RP with a new employer, the immigration police will very likely ask for a leaving letter from the previous place of work. Without that, you may encounter serious problems.

i agree with icnif77. when you enter China with Z visa, it is only one-month valid. 

 

Since you are out of China, if you wanna work in China again, you have to apply for the whole process again. 

 

Since you apply for them before, it will be easier for you to apply them again in the same city. For another city in the same province or another province, it will be like you apply for very first time.

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
