To enter and work in China you will need to obtain a Z visa prior to your departure. Tourist and business visit visas do not entitle you to work in China.
Z visas are issued to foreigners that have already been offered a job in China and received their work permit from their employer. Pioneer & Beyond will help you each step of the way!
For how long is a Z visa valid for?
A Z visa allows you to stay in the country for 30 days from the date of arrival. During this time your employer/ school will seek a temporary residence permit for the duration of your contract.
What will I need to apply for a Z visa?
- Passport (valid for a minimum of 18 months from the date submitting your application and with a sufficient number of blank pages)
- Completed visa application (see links below)
- Passport photo
- Work permit (provided by the school/employer)
- Invitation letter/ contract
- Medical Check
You need to submit your visa application to the visa office of the Embassy/Consulate General which holds consular jurisdiction over the region in which you reside.
Approx. four working days.
