To enter and teach 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 ?
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.
- 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 ( see requirements here!)
- Work permit (provided by the school/employer)
- Invitation letter/ contract
You will need to submit your application to The Chinese Visa Application Service Center (CVASC)
For more information on visa requirements, please contact the CVASC.
