   Explaining How The Visa & Arrival Process Works

1. You provide your documents

2. You Sign a contract (this is your intent to work for a particular school)

3. You (in most cases) complete your medical check and email us the results (1-8 days)

4. The school then sends your documnets, medical and contract to the FAO (Foreign Affairs Office) to be approved for a visa (1-4wks)

5. Assuming success, the school receives your invitation letter to China and approval for Z-Visa/Resident status upon arrival in China, and mails them to you (3-5 business days)

6. Book your flight (We recommend you only book one way, China is a place where you will probably stay longer)

7. You take these documents, a visa application form, passport, and new passport photos to your nearest Chinese Embassy to apply for an entry Z-visa (If you are not near one, use a company like   www.visarite.com) (1-4 days processing time)

8. Once approved , you can come to China

9. Upon arrival, the school will pick you up in the host city, and take you to your accommodation, school, etc

10. They will then take your passport and newly co-signed contracts to the FAO again, to verify your arrival and validity as a future resident

11. Within 1-2 weeks you will receive your Foreign Experts Certificate/Residents Permit, allowing you to come and go from China as much as you like until the date of expiry
