Up to six weeks is a good estimate. That is if your highest degree is authenticated already.

Hi how long on average does it take the employer to get the Foreign expert certificate and letter of invitation? I just submitted all my documentation and medical form and the employer advised the school will start the process of applying for my work permit and visa and it could take 8-10 weeks. This seems exceptionally long, is this a standard timescale?


I've just finished an interview with a Chinese school and was told that after submitting the documents, it would take about 3 months. Also, the fact that I am not in my passport country *might* be a problem or it might not.

I have been asked to pay for residence permit and refused as no previous school has asked me.


I refused and they said they will pay. Fapaio?

The HR is in Beijing. I'm in another province. . I refused and said every other school has done this for me . 3 in total.

What's the story here guys?
New rules?
Someone in the school trying to make some cash
Or something more innocent?

Any input appreciated.

Thanks

Finally got all the documents ready to submit to a school for the rapidly approaching z visa deadline. Today I received an email telling me I now need to get the police check authenticated by the Chinese embassy. Anyone else suffering like this?

Also, regarding the last job end contract release.... has anyone just sent the contract with dates and had problems with this? pretty sure I cannot get a letter as they are asking of me..

Communication is scarce. If we are aware of this 4 months later, 1-3 weeks before the new semester starts, who is communicating the guidelines?

If you haven't left your home country by now, GET FINGERPRINTS NOW!!! It is so much easier than trying to sort it out here.

You will also need a TEFL, which in theory you could get here, but if you want it authenticated or you can't get to a training session in your location in China, you will have to do it online. These usually require authentication. Look into it NOW, not later.

Finally, get your diploma also authenticated through the Chinese consulate.

I am surprised there isn't a sticky specifically for these three things.

I'm confused my the degree authentication. Do I get it notarized and then sent it to the Chinese Embassy? Sorry if this is a stupid question but I have not been given direction.

Yes, get it notarized then take it to the embassy. Make it an embassy where you have resident papers or hold a passport. Some embassies were taking fingerprints last year so for these you need to appear in person.

Another option, if they are not doing the fingerprint thing is to have an embassy service deliver and collect your documents for you

Thanks, Sven! Do I have to bring the degree in person? Or can I express mail to the Consulate that services my area of the US?
