Q: Z visa now requires 2 years overseas work experience?

Ok so I've heard from a lot of people now that Z visa requires proof of 2 years work experience outside of China post graduation.  Is that true?  Any way around it?  What the hell are all the foreign students studying here going to do after graduation if it is true?

I have not heard that rumor yet, and I checked the requirements for a "Z" visa as stated by the Chinese Embassy in Washington, DC, and that one is not listed there.  Now, it would not surprise me that it was true, since China is free to set requirements for ant visa as they so please at any time and for any particular nationality or all of them.

It is a requirement for most ESL positions and is a law amended for teaching ESL in early 2011 but not for teachers with a teaching license from their home country. It is possible to get a position without the experience if the school really wants you depending on your nationality.

The visa rules vary from country to country. lets see in case of three asian countries, its so much easier to come to china if you are pakistani or nepalese but if you are indian the visa  regulations and attitude of the people at the visa place change dramatically. so you might be true depending on which country you are from. better idea yet you should call the embassy or visit and get a detailed info.

Yes, the requirement by government is now 2 years of work experience post-graduation for teaching English. Yes, many schools that are desperately in need of teachers will find a way around it by a) lying to the visa issuers about your graduation date/work experience b) paying you under the table as a part-time teacher. The visa issuers know this happens all the time, but the law was still placed to curb people and schools from trying. At worst, teacher or school would get a slap on the hand and a small fine if caught. Though the likelihood of being caught is pretty low unless at a major training center or school.

Don't be fooled into what is said and what can be done. The law is not new, it's just being upheld. The school will help you by adjusting your resume to suit the FEB. As for MissA and boyfriend sounds like a training school which no doubt as changed their resume to fit the FEB and what they want to see

. Which is why I always say to be less critical over those you think are working illegally, because in truth, if you do not have a Bachelor of Education degree and 2 years of teaching exp. and a proper resume, along with being a Native Speaker, you're already working illegaly regardless if you're on a working visa or not. To give people a thumbs down for these questions or for saying they altered their resume is just stupid. In truth most of you ESL people have had your documents altered to fit the situation, hell most of the ESL teachers in China have fake degrees
