Need to show up for Z-visa Renewal for interview ?

Need to show up for Z-visa Renewal for interview ?

Postby Biglebowski77 » Mon May 15, 2017 12:12 pm

Hello everybody,

My company recently contacted me saying that i am required to show up to Visa office in Pudong while they were trying to renew my residence permit. Apparently i am on some sort of "list" or "Check list", i thought that presence wasn't required in order to renew a Z-visa.

I'm feeling a bit anxious as i have no idea what is it about. Anyone met this situation before ?

Your employer didn't specify why? Late to apply, forgot to register with police, etc? Perhaps they just want to make sure you are you, and that your employer isn't trying to sneak someone through.

Relax, go there and find out what is up. Should be nothing.

HR Employee looked as confused as i am, when i asked for the reason, she said i was on some "Supervision check list", but couldn't answer what could potentially be the issue.

So what happened? Have you had your interview? What was it about?

I guess he got deported on the spot .
Maybe another English teacher that bit the dust?

You think? I was going to joke about it in my first response but held off thinking it may actually come true. :shock:

Hello again,

So i ended up going there with the HR employee from my company, and i haven't been asked any questions.
Well at least not directly, they asked a few questions to HR representative though, i guess random usual questions, what i did before, why they hired me etc...
They took a photo of me again, and that was it. I gotta come back now to get my passport with new visa.

However on another note not sure if linked, but i've read an article today with this title "China to create a Massive DNA database of Muslims", wondering if it isn't linked since while not being a muslim i do have a muslim name, factor or not i don't know.

I read that article too. It could be linked - it sounds plausible. What a sad state of affairs this world is ending up in - if it's true!

Or it could be just a random check. I've had to do lots of new and different things for my new visa (i'm changing jobs).

I heard some people needed to have interviews for visa extensions if they have been here for a number of years,

Anyway, glad it got sorted. Thanks for keeping us updated.
