Greetings, soon-to-be ESL Teachers,
Working as an ESL teacher in China could be an amazing job, it is a good chance to get new life experiences, bridge different cultures, share your mind and knowledge. However when it comes to step-by-step action and procedure to achieve something, often times we would deal with something that is necessary, but not always so inspiring. One example is applying for a working Visa for China, here we want to be together with you dealing with these fussy and messy.
First we would break the whole process down into 4 steps:
1, Check the website of Chinese embassy or consulate in your country to see how to apply for a working visa (Z visa);
2, Check which materials which should be prepared, and how to prepare;
3, When you have finished the preparation, submit your application to the Visa Office of Chinese Embassy/Consulate General based on your State of residence;
4, You will get working Visa in 3-5 working days.
Now we are going to make things more in detail and highlight something, which are often asked by ESL teachers:
By step 2 mentioned above, one of the materials which should be prepared and submitted, is working permit from China.
To get a working permit for ESL teachers in China, the basic procedure would be: You scan and send documents, which are demanded, to the company which you would work with. The list of the documents could vary from area to area, please check it with your company in China.
Normally, it lasts 2-3 months from the moment you begin to prepare these materials till you get the working permit.
So now, you get the general procedure for getting a working visa for ESL teachers in China, step by step, it is not so difficult. I hope we have done something, which could help you to some extent.
Wish you a nice journey in China!
