I do have 20+ years before I reach 60, but I was wondering (and I do appreciate that the laws/rules change often) what happens when someone reaches the hardly old age (these days) of 60 and is (maybe) not technically young enough for a work visa? I ask this because it makes me wonder for those married to a Chinese citizen, are they booted out, saying 'see you on Skype' to a wife and maybe a (one might expect) relatively grown up kid or be required to 'export' them to the West?

I don't know much about China, but I would think someone married to a Chinese national would be covered by a spousal visa, no?

there is a spousal tourist visa for up to 6 months, as far as I know, but I don't know if it's extendable

...just seemed worth asking. Anyway, plenty here suggest you can keep going, and experience (on my part, but not myself) suggests the same. But in 20 years, you might want to be in the new utopia...

...

...

yeah, no hints, am afraid.

I think the difference is in whether you are applying for a NEW job, or renewing an existing contract.
Beyond 65 though I expect even that won't save you.
As to the missus?

It's always best NOT to provide input when you admit you don't know about a topic. China does not have a "spousal" or marriage or family visa for foreigners. There may soon be something called an S visa which is not the same thing. There are other visas that allow long-term stay, but are hard as hell to obtain.

Fact is, there is no such marriage related visa. So, it's best not to give input on something you know you don't know.

What if you don't know you don't know? You might think you know but you don't know, you know?

You can get a spousal RP. Looks the same as your work RP just the reason is different. You can't legally work under it. As you said, rules change often and somewhere in the recent rule changes this may have been boned somehow.

Let us hope that in 20 years China isn't still walking backwards thinking it's healthy.

Recruiters in London told me that after 60 you can still work if you are well-wualified with relevant experience. After 65 - no chance. Join me in retiremenet !

If you look closely, you'll notice a question mark at the end of my sentence.

I thought a long term L was called a family visitation visa and was given for up to a year in the past.
