They do have singer entertainers at certain clubs, restaurants and hotels. It wouldn't be hard to get work legally. No. The restaurant, club or hotel manager usually arranges the contracts. I don't think you will find full time jobs as this only part-time but I heard the pay was great.

My partner used to work as a fulltime band entertainer. Though the pay is good, over the years, it became difficult to get visa, some agency will rip you off unreasonably. So be careful!

Try looking for a position in a five star hotels cause you'll never get wrong.

A:If you earned a Master's Degree in English Literature or a related subject, you can teach English legally in China even if you don't hold a passport from the usually accepted list of countries. The visa requirements clearly specifies this “loophole”.Nonetheless, I think this requirement is only for teaching English. If you are a licensed teacher of another discipline, such as Math or Physics, you don't need to be a native speaker, although most schools would rather hire a teacher from a country where English is the native language.Right now China’s borders are closed (does anyone have new information?), at least that’s what everyone is saying. China is probably only going to reopen the borders again once most of the population is vaccinated, and that might take a while. -- samvelasco87
