Q: Can jewellery (3pcs) be shipped to China, as it's a gift, not for resale.

Some couriers won't accept the pickup, 2 necklaces and a pair of earrings.

Yes they can. You need to find a different courier and clearly state it is a gift on the paperwork.

 

Make sure it is a courier that has tracking as you'll want to see where it is during transit and trace it if it does not get delivered

Try the same courier and tell you are shipping Christmas tree decor ....

 

What does it mean 'not for resale'?

I mean, how can you prove that it won't get sold (for an eternity) to the custom?

 

You can't, so don't even mention it if you'll walk into China ....Custom offical will determine if items are for resale by quantity and confiscate them. 3 pieces of jewerly aren't 'resale' no.'.

A:They're saying you should be in China already because entering China is pretty much impossible at the moment due to covid restrictions. This means schools can only recruit from people already in the country. Also, unless you have dual citizenship you probably wouldn't meet the visa requirements to teach (teach English that is, maybe you could teach other subjects, I don't know) in China. They have a native speaker requirement that means only people from certain countries will be accepted. The second point will probably get this post downvoted, any time you mention the native speaker requirement it brings out one or two angry thumbs - they don't seem to understand nobody on this forum makes the rules..... Anyway, my advice to you would be to look elsewhere. Between China's tough visa requirements and their even tougher covid measures it's pretty much impossible to go there now to teach. The good news is that other countries are dropping their covid restrictions and opening up again so there are probably still opportunities available to you. Good luck. -- Stiggs
