Q: Visa Update: non-natives will be required to serve two years in the China Scam Watch on a "W" visa?

OFFICIAL STATEMENT OF POLICY

 

Because if it's not true it should be. "Non-native teachers have no decency!" declared Brian, an honorable native speaker. "One of them called me, 'Flyin Brian'!" A grievous insult to be sure but is serving two years in the China Scam Watch the correct approach? "Yes, it is." screamed Becky, whose parental legitimacy may be questionable but seems to have Australian citizenship. "If they want to have the same rights as human beings as a native speaker would they must spend two years sworn to make repetitive postings online and accusing others of scams...it's only fair."

 

The China Scam Watch is a VERY unpopular organization, despite it's noble intentions and being completely above suspicion of being a fictitious organization supporting a scam artist. For example If you look at their website, you can see they have ZERO facebook likes. So not one person likes them publicly. That points to an image problem they have. 

 

All persons falling under this policy are required to join the Watch or risk having the status quo of business-as-usual continuing in their lives for an indeterminate amount of time. "We don't know what could happen to them," shouted Stan, an ornery & crusty 50 year old man of the Watch. "Maybe they can just go about their lives as if this post never occurred, maybe they can continue to find opportunity in the job market as they have for years...but maybe, just maybe something in the future will change and they would have to re-evaluate their options. Would YOU take that risk? I wouldn't. That's why you see me right here online accusing random companies of sometimes far-fetched scams."

I would, just because you wouldn't surprise.

 

8th raincoat is on the way! I agree, it's moronic way to get new garments. 

expatlife26:

So you would work in the China Scam Watch even if it was on a "W" visa?

 

It's good to hear that instead of being obstinate you are embracing

 

I'm glad that you are coming to your senses

Wow great post, OP!

 

I'd just be worried about what happens when the 2 yrs are up! Can you renew the W visa or will you be taken directly to prison?

icnif77:

You can renew it in China under condition, you are pimple-less.

 

I got this from entering in search above:

The people of Shijiazhuang needed to know this. This is a matter of lifestyle.

expatlife26:

oh yeah i'm sure they are happy to be kept in the loop as always,

 

and it's really scary how unpopular the china scam watch is. NOBODY likes it? I hope the people being issued W visas can turn it around.

A:They're saying you should be in China already because entering China is pretty much impossible at the moment due to covid restrictions. This means schools can only recruit from people already in the country. Also, unless you have dual citizenship you probably wouldn't meet the visa requirements to teach (teach English that is, maybe you could teach other subjects, I don't know) in China. They have a native speaker requirement that means only people from certain countries will be accepted. The second point will probably get this post downvoted, any time you mention the native speaker requirement it brings out one or two angry thumbs - they don't seem to understand nobody on this forum makes the rules..... Anyway, my advice to you would be to look elsewhere. Between China's tough visa requirements and their even tougher covid measures it's pretty much impossible to go there now to teach. The good news is that other countries are dropping their covid restrictions and opening up again so there are probably still opportunities available to you. Good luck. -- Stiggs
