The University FIL works for e-mailed it to teachers. Believe me, Zhuhai lives by its own laws. You won't find anything on websites. You tell them about the general rules, they tell you they have their own rules.

Oh, I am speechless.  llllllllll

Yeah me too. Let's hope they are just TALKING. Things here change pretty fast. But it is true that a lot of regulations have been imposed in a lot stricter way here in border cities (e.g. bar code pictures are required here for visa applications. I haven't heard it was used anywhere but Guangdong).

Keep the fingers crossed now. I have read a lot on the Chinese forums about the visa problems for foreigners during the Olympics. There are lot of Chinese people have scary thought. They thought this is great, because this can teach the western people to know they can not only just stop Chinese to get in their country. China is getting stronger now, should make more difficulties for western people to get here, especially, Americans and Europeans.  There is a small number of people who think China should think about this more seriously, even pointing out this is a step backwards. bibibibibi

I think that at this time we are in the eye of the hurricane and there is more to come.
The authorities seem to be finding new and subtle ways to control the number of foreigners in China.
Zhaoqing(Guangdong)hardly rates as a city by China standards and there is a small population of "Foreign Experts'. Two recent events cause concern:
1. after a year at our college it came time for one of our teachers (from the Philippines) to renew her Residence Permit. Public Security said she had applied too early and gave her a date to return - some 6 days before expiry. She handed in her documents on that day and was told that as she was late in making her application she would be given a "six month Residence Permit." I have not known this to happen before.
2. last weekend John Wotherspoon, Director of China8 (check China8 out on the internet for his background)went through to Hong and renewed his visa. He returned to Zhaoqing by train (there is a direct rail link between Kowloon and Zhaoqing) and was detained by Immigration at the station.He was refused permission to enter the Mainland and was taken back under escort to Hong Kong. While all the details surrounding this action have yet to be confirmed it now seems possible that a visa is no guarantee that you will be given entry to China
I have my standards. They may be low, but I have them.

X-warrior, a visa to a country is never a guarrantee of entry to said country. This policy i applicable to all countries across the world.

Up here in Beijing it seems to be relaxing. A intern at my company recently picked up his F Visa from a local agent, converted from a 2 month L to a 1 year F, multi-entry, the works, for 1500 rmb (or abouts). My employer was quite surprised, as their instructions from the local Labor Bureau was that no work related visas would be issued for those under 25 anymore (he is 23). So, it appears the cracks are opening up again.
