I am looking at marriage and visa etc, because if i met a good one that would be the logical next step. China does not give fils a working visa on the main land. so would need to look at a tourist visa then if married look at a partner visa. 

Also trying to get the gist of marriage in the fils and all the paper work needed.

Here's one. Often - TOO often, people use the wrong letters for the Bureau of Immigration. It is not BOI, but rather, BI. The BOI is the Board of Investments.

Another one, VAT. VAT is Value Added Tax.

 

Marriage could be performed (legally) only after you have been in country for 10 days.

Seems like I have heard the name "Shrek" applied to someone else at one time.
