Have a Skype or an office meeting with a China Plus staff member.
Make an appointment with us through e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and prepare yourself for the interview.
Make an introduction video about yourself for your potential new employers, the schools.
At our blog section you can find a couple of example videos. If we accept you as a candidate-teacher, the China Plus staff member will give you tips about working and living in China during the meeting.
Start with gathering the necessary documents and send them to us as soon as possible.
If we accept you as a candidate-teacher after the meeting, we will send you a list with documents to prepare so that we can start to match you with a school as soon as possible.
✓ Wait for a match
Once China Plus receives the requested documents from you, we will match you with an appropriate school.
✓ Wait for a work permit
Once you are matched with a school, together with the school we will apply for your working permit from the State Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs in China. Normally the process should take around 2-4 weeks.
We will prepare the employment contract together with your new employer (the school).
We will send you the employment contract while waiting for the working permit.
The school or China Plus will send the working permit to you by email.
The moment the school receives the work permit from the Chinese government – the school or China Plus will send it to you through email.
✓ Visa and departure
Apply for a Z-visa, the official work visa in China.
Book your flight and pack your suitcases.
We advice you to book your flight ticket after you get the visa.
China Plus will help you to prepare through a training.
After you receive your visa to go to China, our staff will get in touch with you for a pre-departure training or they will send you a pre-departure preparation email.
Fly to China and meet our partner agency/school in China.
Our Chinese colleagues will pick you up at the closest international airport. Accommodation will be provided when you arrive. During this time you can take a rest and recover from your journey. When you’re fully rested you can visit our Chinese partner who will take you to the school that you will be teaching at.
You’re ready to work!
Our Chinese colleagues will help you with getting a Chinese sim card, a bank account and finding your way around during the first couple of days.
✓ Stay in touch
It’s important to stay in touch with China Plus during your Chinese adventure. Keep us posted, so if necessary we can help you out and of course we would love to hear your stories!
