China work permit applicationia one of Tannet's business services for global expats to work
legally in China. One does not need a work permit to get into
China. To enter China, one needs only a visa. The visa can be
single entry or multiple. One can only obtain a multiple entry visa
valid for a year if he/her has a work permit. Without the work
permit, one can only get a single entry or two-entry visa. Even in
Hong Kong, it takes three days or more to get the visa and it cost
about USD 20 for a single entry visa. (note: Single entry visa to
China costs USD 50 if obtained in U.S.) With the work permit, one
can get a multiple entry visa which will give the teacher a lot
more freedom going in and out of China.
Also, one needs a work permit to work legally in China.
Documents needed to apply for China work permit:
1.Photocopy of the inside back cover of the passport. That is the
page which has the photo, the name, the passport number, the date
and place of birth and all the other essential information.
2.A photocopy of the diploma. The Chinese Government demands that
all foreign teachers to have a bachelor's degree or higher. The
school needs only the photocopy of one diploma even if a teacher
has several. If a teacher has already completed all the course work
but the diploma cannot be obtained until a later date, an official
letter from his/her school certifying that the teacher is fully
qualified to obtain a bachelor's degree is sufficient.
3.A simple medical report. The teachers are required to go thru a
thorough physical examination in a government approved hospital
after they arrive in China no matter what kind of physical
examination the teachers have prior to their arrival. Therefore, it
is absolutely unnecessary for a teacher to spend a lot of money to
have a thorough physical unless he/she wants to for his/her own
personal use. For the purpose of getting the work permit, the
school only needs a piece of paper with a letter head of doctor's
name and on it, a simple signed statement by a doctor which says
the the teacher is healthy enough to work in China.
4.Copy of the resume.
5.The employment contract. The teacher are advised to send the
school all of the five documents required when he/she sends in
his/her contract. However, if any of the above document is not
available at the time when the signed contract is send, the missing
document can be send in a later date.
