I don't think you're allowed to work or study there. It is difficult to even get a tourist visa. They are extremely strict about who goes into the country. There was a time when any foreigner found there was killed, so I don't think they are keen on foreigners coming to stay.

As far as I know you can only get a tourist visa if you visit as part of an organised group. I would think it would be difficult to work there.

Yeah I was acting in a drama for CCTV and they "suggested" that I leave Tibet while we where filming (but that was right after the 08 riots).

I'm pretty sure you aren't allowed since most foreigners can't go alone and they need to be with a group. If your studying or working it would be a big 'no no' since people who study or work are on their own a lot. That's one of the more isolated places in China.

A:A few years ago, Filipno teachers were beginning to find acceptance in training schools. I think there were special requirements for them to legally get to teach in China. I know that many Filipino teachers found their way into training schools in the southern regions of China.  I do not think they get the same salary as a typical foreigner teacher from a western nation. The benefits are not as numerous too. They are asked to work longer hours. Basically, they are seen as cheap labor, compared to the standard ESL teacher. I have heard of some manipulation of visas and holding of passports. In other words, they are often treated as third-class citizens.  I know of one training school in South China that treats Filipinos very well, but it seems to be an exception than the norm. Extremem caution and due diligence is required for these teachers.  -- nashboroguy
