[quote=BARONTWANGLE,305192]If you are confused, then join the rest of us! You don't mention which country you are from, but the standard procedure for obtaining your initial Z visa is to apply in your country of citizenship. However, there have been cases where people have managed to get them internally (adding to the confusion of how this whole thing works). As far as being married to a Chinese citizen, as far as I know (I know a little!), being married gives you no added visa rights, except that you can apply for an L visa for the purpose of visiting family, which gives you the change of getting a 12 month issue. Regarding your husband starting his own business and employing you. It is a good idea that in theory can work, but you will be piled high in paperwork, permits, and certificates for the next few months, and even then, unless your husband can prove that you can do a job which no Chinese national can do, then the chances are slim. The fact that he is your husband won't increase your chances. You may suggest he look into starting a Hong Kong Overseas Company, and then registering to have an office in Mainland China. This way, it will increase his chances of being able to employ you as a foreigner working in China. The only down side to this is that he won't be able to issue tax tickets to his customers (fa piao) because he won't be paying tax to the Chinese government (he will be paying a lower rate to the HK government). Hope some of this info helps. [/quote]
