I have been on 5 consecutive Z working visas with the same company. I wish to change my company now but have been told I must leave China for one year before I can obtain a new z-visa. I heard many variations on this particular rule. I've heard that one month leave is enough or six months too. Several times I have heard that the policy has changed.
I'm wondering if anyone has had any experience with this. And whether switching to a different visa for a while means I can come back on to a Z later on.
Talk to the PSB because the rules keep evolving and have apparently changed quite recently.
