Q: New Visa Regulations, no bachelor degree?

So I wonder if anyone has experienced this already:

The general rule is that if you don't have a bachelors, you are not allowed to work in china.

 

well I am in a fairly high position but I have not a bachelors (something similar but a little lower than that...). Just wonder if this will give me big trouble next year.

I know english teachers have a lot of trouble this year but I am not teaching english and curious if the visa stuff also carries over to all the other professions.

 

some input of someone who experienced it first hand would be great

Quick read through text ... type B card must...:

- Holds a bachelor’s degree and has two years’ work experience in a certain field;

- A Foreign language teacher who teaches their native language and holds a bachelor’s degree in a country where the primary language is your native language. They also must possess at least two years of teaching experience (those with a bachelor’s degree in a teaching or language-related field, or a TEFL certificate are exempt from this).

It probably depends on what you're doing. If it's a skill China needs and values or you're working for a company that China needs and values I think you'll be ok.

You could ask your employer to try (earlier) with filling up of an online application for WP and you'll see if it will go through.

 

I think, it's better not to dial Gov., because you must explain the whole matter in detail and even if you'll get a positive answer, that can easy turn to 'no' at real time WP application.

 

Anyway, look into the possibility your WP will get denied and what will you do if that happened!

 

Good luck!

It will depend on a lot of factor based on the new scoring system, did you try the new scoring scheme on wechat? Go to search on wechat and type it in and you'll find one there than test yourself and look at your score and see if you can improve anywhere to make the score higher, better start improving your chinese and hopefully youre in a needy city.

 

Just for the record: ESL teachers or teachers of any subject will always be a B card Talent.
