China Embassy in the Philippines

Hi Everyone,

I hope someone can help me. My fiancee is Filipino. In 2009 a Filipina living in Macau China told

my fiancee that if she will come and be a nanny to her son that she will get her a working visa

at some point while she is there. She went there on a tourist visa. She overstayed her tourist visa

because she thought her employer would at some point get her a working visa. Well, that never happened

so she got nervous because her tourist visa had expired and since her employer hadn't gotten her

a working visa she decided to return to the Philippines. This angered her employer.She was in Macau

about seven months.

In order to get a police certificate for her time there she needs a testimonial letter from her employer

but because she left on bad terms with this Filipina she is certain that her employer will not give

her one. Should she call the China Embassy and explain her situation and ask for their help or what

should she do? Please help. Thank you.

Oh that sucks. So she over stayed in china huh? Macau right? What kind of visa did she get for that, regular Chinese visa? Or some kind of special macau thing? How long did she overstay, and what reaction did she get from the immigrations on her way back to the phil?

I ask because it may or may not be possible to get these documents depending on what happened because of her overstay... Im not really sure how China handles polices certificates for foreigners though...

Also, bad terms or not, because she was working on a tourist visa, she will never be able to get one if the requirements really are that she needs an employment letter, as that could likely call into question her ability to work legally.

O yea, and her 'employer' tricked her- sounds like a real b!tch: in China, only government-certified Chinese corporations can hire employees legally (therefore getting a work visa). Since her 'employer' was neither a Chinese business, nor was the purpose of her employment for scientific research or teaching, it was never a realistic possibility in the first place.

Although macau could be a little different. Not sure about that tho. Again, likely depends on what visa she had to get to go there in the first place.
