GUEST68253 Hello,

If I will be granted a z-visa, what type of visa will my son and husband have? Can I bring them to China during my stay there?

Your husband and son can also apply for Z visa.

It is illegal to work in China with L visa according to the law. Once you were found out, you might be deported.

GUEST12187 If they cannot provide you with a Z visa then they are not registered to employ foreigners. An L visa is a short term "tourist" visa which can be renewed only twice within China. You would then need to leave the country (to Hong Kong) to obtain a new one. You would need to pay travel and hotel costs plus the visa and agents fees. It is illegal to work without the correct visa. You would be deported if discovered and banned from re-entry.

Depends, If the L visa is because they are married to Chinese citizen, then a 1000Y fine is common each time. If they are here on an expired visa, then, the fines get hefty, but not more than 10,000 rmb, however, their passport number will be earmarked, and if deported or not, they never be granted an L visa back again. It is difficult to get the Z visa if you are in China. They usually want to return to your country and re-apply. A good school can get you around this problem most of the time.

GUEST49167 I am wondering if you were able to resolve your issue and if so, whether you could give me advice on how. I am also a double citizen (Brazil - US), was given no choice but to come as a tourist as a Brazilian citizen. What can I do if I want to take a job as an American citizen? Would I be able to get a visa on my AMERICAN passport in HK?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Tim, it is possible to get visa in HK if you do not want to go back. But make sure let the official write in the invitation letter for you to apply from HK office. I am not clear what passport you hold, so you can contact a visa agency for the details if applicable.
