I bought a car in China last year.  To get the vehicle license and license plate, you will have to pay the relevant taxes first (paid in person at the local tax bureau).  Good luck trying to convince them your working visa has magical anti-tax properties...

 

Back in the day, foreigners were allowed to import one car from abroad for personal use.  Even then, I'm not sure you could (legally) avoid paying some kind of import tax or customs duty.  Supposedly this method was still cheaper than buying the same car in China.  They've since done away with this loophole.

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
