[quote=697580419426,556033]Hello all, I have spent hours thumbing through all of the posts on this website as well as other websites. I am trying to get an answer from someone that has filed for a Z visa SINCE the end of 2013 (this is when the new rules were put into place). I am a US citizen who plans on moving to China the end of this year to teach. Before graduating from NC State University in 2011 I was convicted of 2 DWI offenses and 1 felony possession charge. All convictions occurred in 2011 and were a result of a drug addiction that I suffered during college. I have been clean almost 4 years now and have absolutely no desire to go back! I do have a 4 year degree as well as a TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) and I meet all of the necessary requirements. I am wondering if anyone has applied for a Z visa and declared the felony on their application and still received their Z Visa. I am also wondering if anyone with a felony has declared "NO" for their criminal record and were still issued a Z Visa (since end of 2013). I know people with misdemeanors have successfully done so but have not heard of someone with a felony trying to do so. Please do not write back saying that China doesn't check records or China checks your records when you get to immigration at the airport or anything ludicrous like that because claims like this are simply not true. Again, the rules have changed drastically since 2013. Please do not judge me for having a felony either. That does not make someone a bad person. I have letters of recommendation from all my probation officers and prior employers and maintained a very high GPA despite being hooked on drugs. I will be grateful for any input you guys have....I listed the 2 paragraphs above only because on other websites I was either attacked for being a felon as if I was a bad person or I received senseless information from people that did not know what they were talking about. Thank you all![/quote]
