    You can work only if you hold a work permit and residence permit yourself. The same conditions for all foreigners apply. You have a job and the company can legally employ foreigners. Work permit is tied to that company and location that you are actually working and the position matches. You can't just work in China if you hold a dependence visa or residence permit.

    Yes and no. There are plenty of people who get teaching jobs in China with no degree. However they're probably not legally allowed to be teaching. Supply and demand.  Schools who are hard up for a teacher will hire whomever they can get their hands on. Schools get busted regularly for hiring unqualified teachers. Years ago I met a guy in his  fifties who bragged to me how he got a...

    "As one would expect with any regulatory overhaul of China, there was a distinct nationalist flavor to the new rules: among other things, they also ban the teaching of foreign curriculums, tighten scrutiny over the import of textbooks and forbid the hiring of foreign teachers outside of China -- a curb that could have severe consequences for startups like VIPKid that specialize in overseas...

    My advice? Keep in your lane. If you know teachers who are working illegally, it would be them that suffer should you report the school. Wouldn't it be better to have a quiet word wqith the teachers, find out there situation, and help them out? 

    There are many reasons people find themselves working illegally. Some intentional, some not. The non-intentional ones have been tricked...

    Highly unlikely I'd say. Pre-pandemic you usually needed to go back home and reapply, I doubt much has changed, except that you'd have a hard time getting back into China if you left because the borders are mostly closed now.

     

    If someone is offering you a job and telling you to come in on the M visa and they'll change it when you arrive, you don't want  that job.

  • Jul 14,2021

    Things could have changed during the two years I've been away from China, but generally Z visas are only 30 days in length.  Once you arrive at your school, they should get you a worker's permit and a residence permit.  The residence permit is usually a year in length or at least the length of your contract (or longer in some circumstances).  It allows you to work only at that...

    To teach beyond the age of 60 there are two mechanisms which are possible.  The first is to work at a university or college  ... these institutions usually allow past age 60 teaching.  The other mechanism is regionally-based ... there are some cities/regions which have no upper age limits, so do a little research yourself on where you'd like to go.  And talk to agents or...

    No, you cannot change your mind (unless force majeure or similar ..) because you signed a contract with your WP sponsor, and with signed contract they applied for your WP.

    Signed and stamped contract is a requirement for WP application.

     

    That signature of yours is binding and you aren't advised to renegade on that unless you are very ill and ...

    Best advice IMO you could get at Foreign Expert Bureau.

    This is an old (pre-2017) name of Chinese org., which approved Working permit, so I'd say find out which is that org. and ask them for an advice.

    Your employer knows the name and address of that org. because they had to apply for your Working permit there.

     

    I'd say, you can stay in China until your...

    People always say that but I've seen lots of VPN questions over the years where people named the one I was using, along with the other popular ones and as far as I know they're all still working ok.

    Accomodation costs/allowance is in addition to salary.
    You should not expect to have to find this on your own.
    if your contract does not specify either that accomdation is be provided or you get an accomodation allowance (with assistance in finding same) avoid the place.

    I guess the answer may differ depending on the cultural background. For Americans, a simply "hi" would suffice. While Chinese and American 'dating' cultures do differ, American guys may be less inclined to approach a girl because of the langauge or cultural differences. We are also told that Americans are not a Chinese girls first choice (perhaps more of a necessity, especially if a Chinese...

    I charge 100/hr. The reason so low? I love the Chinese people and desire for them to learn English. If I charge too much, it only invites those who can afford it. Besides, though I charge less than most others, the time I spend with them per week is usually more than most others. I gear my lessons to 1.5 hours + .5 or more hours "practical" learning (we go out to eat or shopping). They get...

    There's a SAFEA's weblink posted at some thread here. Enter 'SAFEA' in search and you'll find it.

     

    However, SAFEA was disbanded as the last novelty of Labor law came out in 2017.

     

    I ain't sure, which org. replace it, but it must be the same as the one which approves one's Working permit.

    I know, and know of (some people I never met personally) a few people. Also know a guy who probably would have ended up deported eventually if he hadn't skipped the country.

     

    Drugs, getting into fights with the wrong people and a failed annual medical test for the visa renewal were the reasons.

    The only person who looks good with a masked face is Batman, and the mask covers the wrong side of his face. 
     

    I always wear a mask, because...  Nanjing in the summer can get pretty ripe. A few drops of Sakura oil inside the mask, and I'm good to face the subway during rush hour.
