I did some web search for you ...

Z - Working visa/Teaching English requirements:


What Are the Requirements for a Z Visa?

To be eligible for a Z visa, you will need to meet the requirements to teach English which are set out by your school in China. While these requirements may differ from school to school, they tend to revolve around three main components:


*A Bachelor’s Degree in any subject

*Two Years Work Experience or TEFL certificate (ideally 120 hours)

*Native English Speaker

*Criminal background check

Applicants are also subject to the same retirement ages as Chinese workers: 60 for men and 55 for women. While these ages are still being revised, it will be more difficult to get a visa if you are older than that. We go into more detail on the requirements teachers need to teach in China here. ...


... other attributes you should posses are: a) being a white, Caucasian; b) skinny.

Chinese for some reason don't favour overweight person.

Good luck!

A: Easter is a common egg-coloring, religious holiday in Western countrie
A:Easter is a common egg-coloring, religious holiday in Western countries ...  Here, we all stream upon improving of written English syntax of the posters.  Most Chinese are unable to judge yer English. They just look at applicant's passport and if it was issued by the one of the 5 (or 6) native English countries, your English must be good, too. Yes, by the current Labour law provision, you qualify for an English teaching job in China despite you hold a non-native English passport.However, most recruiters and language schools aren't aware of that, so you most likely won't get too many replies at your job applications, but ... Never mind! Don't stop sending your CV until you land the invitation for an interview. You might want to stick the sentence about your eligibility for a legal English teaching job in China into the Intro letter or anywhere in your CV.As soon as you'll land an invitation for the interview, make sure you'll mention that provision to the interviewer, first!
 Good luck! -- icnif77
