As I heard, every new arrival to China must go into designated hotel and quarantine her/himself on their own expense.

 

That will be an expense larger than the return flight ticket to China ...

 

Once, you have a job, you should ask your employer/Residence permit sponsor about that and they should clearly tell you about required (or no) quarantine at the arrival to China.

 

I guess, required seclusion place will be at the arrival airport in China.

 

Cost for the stay in seclusion will be yours .. unless you make your employer include the cost of quarantine into the Contract (before you sign it!) same as a return flight ticket refund.

At the moment only Chinese are allowed back into China and they pay for the quarantine themselves. If they have enough in their social insurance then that pays for it. Meals can be ordered & you pay. 
 

the small number of foreigners allowed back in have needed a Covid in the days before the flight. They then had two days of quarantine and if they passed a 2nd Covid year were let out. They paid. 
 

as an English teacher do not expect to be let into China before September or October. They're currently only slowly opting up for company critical workers from come countries.

@icnif77: good point, i will include 'quarantine expense on their account', as one of my terms Smile

@Hotwater: since i am both, Australian and Serbian Citizen, i may as well enter China from Serbia.

One test and 14 days in quarantine. No mention of closed borders, 

Thank you both for helping.

 

Regards, Ivan.

Hotwater, you have some good points. I like You Smile

I am glad i placed the question on this forum. 

I'll definitely ask for a return ticket in advance. That should balance out my unexpected expense relating quarantine.

Btw, i have applied for approx 10 positions within a week, and so far, I had no answers.

Sorry for asking, is that normal?

Could it be my age? I am 54 yo.

 

Best Regards.

Thank You icnif77 for encouraging me Smile It means a lot.

I am afraid i'll loose a track if i apply for many jobs.

I think, i'll take it easy during June, and, if nothing happends, i will hit them hard in July Laughing out loud

 

On one job offer that I liked, over 1600 teachers applied. On another job offer, they obligated them selves to correspond within 72 working hours. However, i didn't like that one Smile

Some offers i don't really understand, they probably used Google Translator.

 

God help us all Smile

 

Regards, Ivan,

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
