Q: Can I teach in X'ian at the age of 60?

I am a EFL language trainer at Yulin University - my contract A says I can only work in Yulin up to the age 60.  I will be 60 in 2025.   Can I work up to 65 in X'ian?

if your employer sticks to the letter of the law regarding employment of foreigners, then the answer is no.
If your employer is satisfied with your work and they will ignore your age, the answer is 'maybe' , unless they can get someone younger and cheaper than you.

However, you may encounter a problem when you register and some ;jobs-worth' notices your age unless your employer has good 'guanxi'

your employer will be the one to determine if you are still working in China next year.

In the past, maybe. 
Now? Unfortunately, no.

the answer is YES if you qualify for the Class A work permit. this is for high level talent and has no age restrictions!

roncasia777:

here is a link with information regarding the class A w.p.: https://mp.weixin.qq.com/s?__biz=MzIwNDI2ODYxMw==&mid=2656753424&idx=1&sn=e46b7df00830389550b56ffbdbff948f&chksm=8d6cc23aba1b4b2c6fba6075c37cdd7335fe283554aefcf9d9082967ae1e1c328629b97a2c29&mpshare=1&scene=5&srcid=0320lkChOmkic1NyhioksKQY#rd

Also, several areas havew recently raised the working age limit for teachers to 65. its worth checking with the local authorities.

I have seen in schools I have worked with or while doing job hunting, that many schools do employ teachers (not A work permit) older than 60.

As in the first comment, most international schools and other bilingual ones have enough "guanxi" to make it happen.

Hi, I'm from Singapore and I've worked in China teaching the English language for 3 years dated Aug 2017 to 2019. When Covid started I was reluctant to go back due to the virus. Now I’m 63 and it’s such a challenge to get a teaching job. I just enjoy working to keep myself healthy. Anyone has any suggestions kindly share. Thank you.

Hotwater:

You won't get job in China at 63.
