Q: What happens if you have twins in China?

Do you have to make a payment due to the one child policy?

Nope. You are considered very lucky as it is one of the ways that you can have more than one child under the policy.

It's a huge market for fertility drugs that promote multiple births, it's the free parking of the one child policy.

My wife has a twin. It was hard slogging for them. They were born the year the policy took effect, but the problem was the rationing system made no consideration for twins. So, she had to split her food rations with her sister. She still thinks it's why she's so short, malnourishment as a youngster.

I would say that the "one child policy" is rather "elastic" and accomodates many things thru either not addressing them, or by being a bit vague sometimes.
One that puzzles me is that if a Chinese man and a woman marries, and have a girl as a child, and they get divorced and marry someone else later, they can legally have another child because it seems it is a "one child per marriage" the current interpretation. 
I have never seen a couple fined for having more than one, but have heard of a few cases in local news, and by word of mouth.  Some had small problems registring more than one child for school.

Probably any other thing just as if it happened somewhere else. If you have a twin it's two mouths to feed, two diapers to change, two babies to burp and two babies to love. If your a foreigner and have twins not much anybody can do about it. Ask PrettyNyssa she just had twins.

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
