Z visa to tourist visa?

Is it possible to change Z visa (work/residence permit) to tourist visa without leaving China? If so, how long does it take? My employer is insisting I stay "an extra few days" so that they can cancel my residence permit (once they've cancelled my foreign expert's certificate). All I want to do is go home.

Thanks in advance

A visit to the PSB should be able to confirm this but I doubt it. Did you manage to get it done?

If you want to go home, you should be able to just go to the airport and leave. The authorities have no interest in you.
