When you get job at the School or Company in China, they will open Chinese Bank account for you. It is cheaper for Company in China to deposit salary to Chinese Bank account than any other Bank out of China. It even differ between Chinese Bank accounts opened in different cities in China.


Nanjing New Oriental this year demanded, I open an account at Merchants Bank in Nanjing. I have Bank accounts at all mayor Banks in China, opened in different cities. As I understand, School must pay higher Bank fees if they deposit salary on 'out of town' Chinese Bank account.

Also, banks will often only allow payroll deposits in accounts setup in the same bank that the payroll account is in.  For example, if you school's payroll account is in China Construction Bank, then they will only transfer money to other China Construction Bank's accounts.  This is a rule of the bank, the company/school has little choice.  Of course, TIC so anything is possible if the company/bank is creative.

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
