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.

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. Must be the same as the one used to apply for the work permit)
  • Completed online visa application. You will need to fill out the form on your computer. (from the 17th December 2018 the Visa Application Centres will implement an online application form and appointment system.) – you will have to print this out and bring it to your appointment
  • Passport photo (guidelines here)
  • Work permit (provided by the school/employer)
  • Supporting documents (might be required to submit supporting documents on a case-by-case basis.):
  • Your fingerprints will be collected when you submit your visa application.

You will need to book an appointment with the Chinese Visa Application Service Centre (CVASC)
