Q: Chinese Police criminal records check

I'm applying for a teaching job in Beijing, and have been in China continuously for five and a half years. A recruiter has told me such a certificate is necessary and I've asked the Foreign Affairs Officer at my current school. She has said I should go to a Notary Public office (公证chu)but I'm not sure what to ask for...

 

Any suggestions or advice?

 

Thanks.

I guess, you should get Non-Criminal Record Certificate out of your country of origin. See your Bj Embassy for more.

 

I'm in China long time too, and last year in Henan, I had to bring Non-Crim Cert. out of my country of origin.

 

As I know, Cert. was required for USA citizens, but that rule might vary in different Provinces.

 

I'm not sure, if you can get Cert. out of PSB (Exit-entry Police).

My personal knowledge of this:

 

I recently got one for a Chinese friend who is in Australia.

 

The process is a little different for Chinese people. I had to go to her Hukou office and get a form with a stamp first.

 

You will have to go to the police station where you registered your residence. It takes a couple of days at no cost to you. Then go to the notary office to get it stamped. This step can be a bit of a nightmare.

 

In addition, I do know of an ex-colleague (foreigner) who was immigrating to Canada because she married a Canadian guy. She had to personally go to the police station where she was registered and it was no trouble.

 

Please update how it goes for our information.

No, I don't personally know.

 

But someone asked this in a different forum, and someone replied saying that X says Y should do it, Y says Z should do it, and Z says X should do it....

 

so, expect a lot of running around and being BSed by lazy arse incompetent morons!

 

(from what was worked out - Notary office! But probably after police - Notary office only puts (more) official stamps on things - it should be a police matter (you know...criminals... police...!! go figure!)

iWolf:

You are correct....LOTS of running around because each person you deal with has different requirements. Notary Office is the final step. I wanted to cry when I was doing it for my friendcheeky

Why would you bother with Chinese police, and not ask for an advice from your Bj Embassy instead?

How long you're in China doesn't matter at all!

There is NOT a requirement for two years experience to be a teacher in China.  If you come with your husband under a different visa, make sure you have all the required documentation to get a Z visa when you find a job in China. It will make your life much easier.  To work in China, you MUST have a Z visa and only a Z visa.  -- nashboroguy
