As a Zimbabwean I'm pretty sure you'd be considered a non native speaker which pretty much rules you out unless you got your degree in a native speaking country.

 

By native speaking country they mean UK, America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and maybe South Africa, I'm not sure where SA stands now.

If you can get the work permit notification from the Chinese employer then yes Roy can apply for a Z-visa in Sourh Africa IF you can show you’re legally resident in Sourh Africa. 

 

It says this on the Chinese consulate visa website. 

 

What I don’t know is if you’ll get a legal work permit notification letter

That sounds like a long shot but who knows maybe some countryside village needs an English teacher.

A:Teaching English in China Requirements for 2022 (chinabyteaching.com) This link will answer your visa questions. There is NOT a requirement for two years experience to be a teacher in China.  If you come with your husband under a different visa, make sure you have all the required documentation to get a Z visa when you find a job in China. It will make your life much easier.  To work in China, you MUST have a Z visa and only a Z visa.  -- nashboroguy
