i want to marry a chinese person and go to live there, please someone save me from this hellhole
How hard is it to immigrate there?
from what i know, which may be wrong, pretty hard unless you have some business opportunity which would imply you have quite a lot of studies, which i dont because im a mess
Bit of a side note, apparently if you were born there, even if you renounced your citizenship (which is required to get another country’s citizenship, no Chinese dual citizens), you can ask for your citizenship back using your original birth certificate. This situation would actually apply to me if I wanted to, but I’m not sure how difficult that actually is. I imagine it still isn’t that easy.
I’ve been living here for 20 years, but it’s all contingent on my getting my visa renewed every year (or two years now that I’ve passed a critical age). Getting permanent resident status?
Not. A. Fucking. Chance. In. Hell.
I’m married to a local. I own real estate. I own a business. I am in excellent standing with the police. I will never see permanent residence.
If I had a few million dollars, or if I had advanced degrees in certain fields they want advanced degrees in, then maybe—maybe!—I could get permanent residence. Without that, however, my chances are so vanishingly small that I’ll be long-dead before they get around to awarding it to me.
Who knows, China might announce an immigration reform in a few months. They are on a reform spree right now.
They have to, their people are aging to the point that they need fresh blood.
Having that said, i wonder how chinese would react to a sudden influx of foreigners, as far as i know they treat them as celebrities.
They did maybe 20 years ago (when I arrived). They still do maybe out in the sticks.
No urban centre, even out-of-the-mainstream places like Wuhan, treats foreigners as celebrities and they haven’t for well over a decade.
It makes sense.
