aodaliaren Posted March 8, 2012 at 08:54 AM Report Share Posted March 8, 2012 at 08:54 AM I've got a couple of questions. In September 2009 I started a teaching job in China that was supposed to finish in June 2010 but I had to leave about a month early because my elderly mother had had a huge fall and needed someone to take care of her at home and since I'm the only child that was up to me. I explained that to the school and they weren't happy but they let me go. I've now been back home since May last year and since my mother is now in a nursing home I'm looking to come back to China. Web International English offered me a job after requesting references from previous employers including my last job in China. They also requested a copy of my Z visa and my residency permit which I scanned and sent. They are now telling me the need a copy of a letter of recommendation which I sent to them. That letter is in Chinese. They also said that I need a release letter from my old school along with confirmation that my Foreign Expert Certificate has been cancelled. I have been told before by agencies that since I've left the country already it is obvious that I no longer work there and besides my residency permit ran out last year. Is the school just playing games or is this really the case. They also said that they want me to come over to China on a tourist visa which they will then convert to a residency permit on my behalf and that they will bear the cost. They also said I can get a tourist visa for 30, 60 and even 90 days. The online site for the local Chinese consulate states tourist visas only allow someone to stay for 30 days and that under exceptional circumstances it can be extended by 7 days but no more than that. I'm just totally confused by all of this. Any thoughts? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
