i wouldnt bother its really expensive and illegal, its illegal to work for any one apart from the company that sponsors your visa, and they are cracking down on this along with other things starting July the 1st!! i think there was one company that could get you a Z visa but it was around 20k,

As I  know, 'work visa sponsor' must be Chinese Co., 'authorized to hire foreigners'. Only Chinese Schools qualify, not an Agencies. 

 

China Visa Agency in HK for more info:

 

http://www.fbt-chinavisa.com.hk

 

This is web link of Schools in China, authorized to hire foreigners:

 

http://www.anesl.com/schools/info.asp?province=Jiangsu&keyword=Universit...

 

Change parameters in the web link : 'Province' and keyword: 'School's level'.

 

 

Good luck!

The only way you can legally work a a freelancer is to register a company with you as the company legal representative. Unless you have a business licence, the company stamps (chops) and various other documentation, you have no chance. You cannot get a 'z' visa through a visa agent.

A:My advice? Keep in your lane. If you know teachers who are working illegally, it would be them that suffer should you report the school. Wouldn't it be better to have a quiet word wqith the teachers, find out there situation, and help them out? There are many reasons people find themselves working illegally. Some intentional, some not. The non-intentional ones have been tricked and are the victims. Help them find a way to get legal employment.If you are working without Z-Visa, Working Residence Permit, and Foreigners Work Permit for the job and location, you don't have an enforcable contract.. You may be lucky in having an employer who does exactly what they promised in the contract, but why take the risk?Without an enforcable contract Chinese Employment Laws don't protect you. Get legal if you can, and if you can't know the risks. We shouldn't do anymore than try to give meaningful advice - as the saying goes: "You can lead a horse to water..."Now, on the Native/Non-Native Issue. Yeah, it's shitty. There are many, many, many great ESL teachers who are non-natives, including Chinese teachers. Hell, I know enough great Local Teachers who are wonderful with their students and whose English is more than adequate to teach it. But clients don't pay the equivelant. This is market driven, clients pay premium for Foreign Teachers That's the reality and why many training centres scam both the teachers and the clients. Caveat Emptor. Reporting the schools will just get some teachers in trouble.Sure, some teachers have eyes wide open and know that they are running the risk. Not my problem, their choice is their problem. If schools employing illegals bother you, it's simple. Don't work for those schools. Don't work for those employers. It will eventually be non-cost effective for them to hire illegally because they'll have to pay too much for those that want to run the risk. Market driven economics 101. So, in conclusion, keep yourself legal and yourself safe, help those that want or need your help, and keep in your lane regarding 'illegals'. Because if you're fully legal, China is the mollusc of your choice. -- Azriaphale760493
