|GUESTLANE: The maximum stay seems to vary according to nationality and the office you apply at. Apply for the visa in your own country and apply for the maximum duration with multiple entry. In my case this gave me a maximum of nine months.|
If you have problems with this, consider applying for a business (F)Nvisa, however you might need the assistance of an employer or agency for this. It used to be possible to easily obtain them in HK just by asking, but I hear stories that it is more difficult now.

|Guest13190: based on what I have read in here you do not need to get yr marriage ratified in China (but I suggest you read the many posts). |
If the businesses in question are accredited to employ foreigners , you might be able to apply for a Z (work) visa... if not, one of them might be able to find another company that can do it on their behalf. In any case the employer will have to show that you have suitable skills and qualifications. If this is not possible you might be able to obtain an F visa (business). If the foreign owned company employs (and, technically, pays) you overseas, or if they pay you with money they have brought from overseas then I believe that is well within the F visa rules. Then there is the unofficial F visa operation: a company applies for one for you and you work anyway.....as I understand it, this depends on the local PSB office and the relationship the employer has with it and local police (or is prepared to develop). Your 'family' will understand this side of things !
