Q: How easy is it to switch to a working visa from a student visa?

Hi. I'm here on a student visa and I was just wondering, in case I want to get a full time job as a teacher here, how easy is it to change my visa to a Z type working visa while still remaining in China during the whole time?

Will I be forced to return to my home country and reapply for entrance to China or can it be done here?

 

Thanks

You must get Z visa sponsor (School) first!  School will apply for Working permit, and other stuff at Foreign Expert Bureau.

 

If your School is powerful enough, they might convince PSB (exit-entry Police) to issue 'Z' pick-up in HK. You must exit China for Z. 

As I read, PSB in bigger cities always require Z pick-up at Chinese Embassy in your home country (Tianjin PSB 2Y ago)

 

Z pick up (converting your student visa to Z) cannot be done in China.

A:Dont know where they got those answers from, you DO need two shot Chinese vaccine done at least 15 days prior to travel, but, you wont be entering anyway as ESL teachers are not considered essential workers. I have been here 17 years, double vaccinated 5 moonths ago, coulfnt even get an ETD to go home and bury my mother and was firmly told i would be denied entry, as if i am leaving my wife a kid behind.  -- markymarc1972
