Q: Anybody out there know a chinese person who has experience in paperwork for Z visa? In Zhengzhou

Hi there!

I am working in a restaurant in Zhengzhou, am from Mexico, and my boss has no experience in the paperwork required to get a Z visa issued for me.

We need a chinese person who has some or little experience in this, maybe a colleague in your school can help us out with this.

Anybody out there could help me out, please?

You will not get it,


sorry but the business has to be registered and have a permit to hire a foreign worker.

If the business has no idea, then most likely they are not allowed to hire non chinese workers.


Next the business will need to supply you the following.

1. copy of their permit to hire foregn worker

2. a letter of invitation

3. They will need to take you to down town Zhengzhou to the one hospital that can do the health check and get a health check booklet. ( takes about 3 hours for medical) and they have it done in a week.


** then after they got all the paper work is the hard part, you can not get a Z visa in China, you have to leave the country,  the one place most people go is Hong Kong, they are issue them still, but also decline a lot also  If you go to Hong Kong, expect to be there a week, whle it process.  Regardless of what others say, use a Visa company in Hong Kong, the week we were there ( had to go twice, i got turned down first time)


By strict rules you are suppose to return to your home nation to apply for new visa, but as of last month, they were still doing them in Hong Kong

A:Yes, you can get legal ET job by the Chinese Labor law.  Problem is, most Chinese managers and recruiters don't know, they can obtain Working permit for a non-native English teacher with BA completed in a native English country. I'd suggest, you mention possibility of legal employment for non-native English teacher with degree completed in a native English country at the first interview. It's a tough time in China at your example, IMO.  Most recruiters and hiring managers in China know only "ET must hold a native English passport ..", so your job application get dismissed right there. The other thing is, never stop sending your CV to the job offers doesn't matter if no replies. At my time in China (pre-2017), I'd send CVs to every offer posted daily.I've even disregarded advert's requirement 'native English passport holder', and ... I got a reply or two in a month time. Take the last paragraph as a rule! Good luck!   -- icnif77
