What I really miss here is the information how one gets the Z-spouse-visa in ones home country.
We tried to apply for our Z-Visa this week at a Chinese embassy in Europe.
Well, we thought that we finally had all the necessary documents but the embassy told us that my wife can’t get a Z-visa cause her name wasn’t listed on the invitation of the Foreign Economic Relation & Trade Commission Office.
Our contact in Shanghai now told us that my wife can ONLY get the invitation (and therefore the temporary Z Visa) when I already have the residence permit etc.
We are really wondering if this information is correct?! I’mean do families have to “split” now to be allowed to come to China?
