If you do not say on what city of China you are located, it is difficult to steer you to a place to buy what you wish.  Any of the larger supermarket chains have a section with foreign food, parmasan cheese from Kraft is normally there, as well as many other goodies like pasta sauces.  We have at my city three western food stores, expensive like hell, but still manage to get a few things not found otherwise.  Some will not shop there because of prices, I do go and look around, and sometimes I do find good bargains.  But really look at expiration dates, local store owners pay no attention to them, and keep expired merchandise on shelves until they are sold.

Try Carrefour.  They have a few in Qingdao.
You can also buy Kraft singles at almost any larger supermarket...it's not that good, but it will ease your cheese fix in a pinch.

A:My friends who are managing schools still can't recruit from outside of China because of the borders being closed, as far as I know that doesn't look like it's going to change anytime soon. If you have a current existing residence permit etc you can re-enter the country, going through the usual quarantine process obviously but no new visas are being issued. I don't know about business visas but I suspect it wouldn't be much different. For up to date info you could probably contact the Chinese embassy in your country. -- Stiggs
