As long as they dont tell Immigration there there for work, and dont have anyone reportnig payments.

To avoid possibility of arrest . Best to get correct visas.

It will cost you a lot of money to get out of there for the 2 people . And a lot of time to get it changed . I've toured china for 2,5 months and everybody working on that tour also had the wrong permit meaning we could not leave if we did not pay . It took 1 guy about 2 weeks to get the permit for everybody . We were lucky that we found out about 3 weeks before the end of the tour and not at the airport .

We all went in thinking we had the right permit (working) but after 6 weeks of touring someone working at a hotel tells us we all have tourist visums . 1 guy from the tour went to sjanghai to fix that (taking all of the passports from us with him) . Took him 2 weeks to fix it without paying serious money as far as i know . He did go to the dutch ambassy(?) and had contact with a lot of other people and in the end he got it fixt . 1 week after that was the end of the tour so just in time .

Be prepared for a lot confusing situations even if contracts are signed and everybody got your rider . The real shit will hit when your there . Was the mail adress from david any help ?
