Q: Z visa re application

I have rep office step up in shenzen, I got a z visa and submited it for a working permit. After the police investigation they got to know the office was a virtual office instead of a real office.my agent had taken money from me as rent for a real office but she was just trying to be smart , in short the PSB refused my work permit and has giving me 10days extention. Can I still re apply again or do I have to get another invitationand go for a second z visa again. Do I have any chances at all?

New School must reapply for both documents, and you must exit China.

I believe, your new employer won't have problems to secure new Working permit and Invitation letter. It takes about 30 days, even faster to get both documents out of SAFEA.

However, only after your new School will apply for new WP, you'll know your options.

Since you are in Shenzhen, you must be Native English teacher (passport from UK, USA, Canada, Ozz, New Zealand, S. Africa) for WP grant.

Important part is (if you'll wait for both documents in Hong Kong): It must be stated on Invitation letter 'Z visa pick-up in HK', which must be confirmed by SAFEA. Sometimes, that's not granted, and you must apply for Z in Chinese Embassy in your home country.

Tell School's rep. to ask about 'HK Z pick-up' before hand. SAFEA will tell, if they'll grant HK pick-up or no, so if they confirm, you can wait a month in HK for both documents and apply for Z in Chinese Embassy there.

 

Make sure, you'll exit China on time. Better exit a day before, than last 10-days visa grant expire, than later.

 

You could also get info about 'troubles at new Z application' by dialing SAFEA in Guangdong. 

Enter 'SAFEA' in search above for address and contact numbers in your Province.

Addresses weblink isn't updated, so many phone numbers listed have changed.

 

Please, update the Board if Guangdong SAFEA's phone number has changed. 

Good luck!

P.S.

Edit your Q above and write name of the Agency (into the Q), which got you fake documents as a warning to other posters here! Thx!

You need a license to employ foreigners to get a z visa. If you are setting up an office here you need the z visa license to apply for the z. There are a few threads about it here. Use the search bar above for subjects such as "How to set up a company", "How to set up a WOFIE". That sort of thing.

The PSB were probably just wise to the agent you used. You need to do research before paying an agent more money. Never use agents that promise you a Z visa.

Again, use the search questions bar above for questions about Z visas. That will give you an idea about what is involved.

Good luck.

To the OP. It's your stupid agent you should be addressing this question to, not a bunch of keyboard warriors who give non-sensical & half-baked answers. 

 

Your agent is the one who has fucked you over with this virtual office problem. How much per month rent did he/she scam you for? Reall offices in Tier 1 cities are bloody expensive as I know from dealing with setting up my bosses WFOE last year.

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
