If a company is willing to hire you, even though you don't hold a degree, then you can apply for a Z visa.

However, the company would certainly have to justify their choice.

For teaching English, it's a bit particular. They are specific requirements such as being a native speaker from a English speaking country and holding a TEFL certificate.

But then, in China, it's often who gets the best connections or who can go over the law. So you still have the chances to get a Z visa.

yes, in certain situations (if you are older) you can simply say you lost your degree. especially if you have great qualifications such as business experience

Yes, but not as you think. If the school likes you, they will create a fake for you. All teachers must have a Degree to teach anything including EFL" like it's rocket science yes", that being said, it's not a good idea, that means they own you and treat you as they want. If you change schools in the same province, only the fake created can be used to transfer your Foreign Expert Certificate. If not they will ask you to leave the province, not the country. Anon, I will not say you shouldn't work with out a degree, for so many people do. But as a former Director of Studies and Foreign Affairs, and a current legal advisor, I will say, becareful my friend, and do your homework before letting a school do anything that could endanger your future at which point you would need my employers. Ummm, they're not cheap.

I agree with the above comments, but why would you try to cheat the requirements? Honestly, if you do get a job without the requirements then your wages etc will suffer.One thing you have to be aware of is that everyone knows everything about you because you are a foreigner!

hello, the situation is different when it comes to native speakers. with a native speaker, the school can get the z visa for you without a degree. but you will need a tesl or it equivalent to get the z visa. but for none natives or near natives mostly Africans, you need a degree and also tesl to get this z visa. hope this answers your question.

Its all depends on the school and their contacts.  And if they flash a black light over the degree to check if its real or not. I know not all degrees have a seal but they might check.  You've got a 50/50 chance.

A: You can work only if you hold a work permit and residence permit yours
A:You can work only if you hold a work permit and residence permit yourself. The same conditions for all foreigners apply. You have a job and the company can legally employ foreigners. Work permit is tied to that company and location that you are actually working and the position matches. You can't just work in China if you hold a dependence visa or residence permit.  -- jmintzis
