[quote=LEMONCACTUS,389739]Wow. I can't believe you'd not research this before coming here and doing this?! Maybe I'm not impetuous enough, or in love enough! I assume you came here on a 3 month tourist visa? "L". This can be extended once, for a month, in China (sometimes more than once... there are no fixed rules... but obviously that's what your local PSB have said, so they'll probably stick to it). Then you must leave China and re-apply for a new visa (you could try running around the country looking for a PSB that would extend again, but you really don't want to get stuck in China without a valid visa). Hongkong seems to be the favoured place to flee to - closest/cheapest option - though you never quite know what the visa-getting situation is going to be like there. As far as I know there are no minimum time limits for being out of the country and re-applying for a tourist "L" visa. After you're married you would be able to apply for a spousal "L" visa valid for 12 months. This allows you to stay in China, but you can't "legally" work on it. If you want to work, you'll need to find a legitimate job/company and they will give you what you need to apply for a "Z" visa (again, this'll probably need to take place outside China). Once you have a "Z" visa you can come back to China, and within 30 days, convert it into a resident's permit, which will allow you to live and work here for a year (and the permit functions as a multiple entry visa would). If you decide to work as an English teacher, probably your best option, you don't necessarily have to be a qualified teacher, but if you're going to do things the easy/legit way, you'll need a degree of some kind, and/or teaching experience, and/or a teaching certificate. Millions of internet sites out there where you can check out jobs in China, and required qualifications. There are better visa experts here than I, but you should know that there are no hard and fast rules in China; the PSB in the next town may say something different for instance. LC[/quote]
