In recent years, China has become the primary destination for ESL teachers. However, policies change frequently for who can come and teach. The requirements below are necessary to obtain a “Z Visa” (working visa) which you need to teach in China. The process to apply for this visa can take up to 3 months, so you must organise your time. We at TEFLACE can assist you every step of the way at no cost.

In addition to being a native English speaker you will need:

A TEFL certification (120+ hours). Some schools will still accept a 100-hour certificate, but 1st-tier cities like Beijing and Shanghai require at least 120-hours of TEFL training. We recommend this comprehensive TEFL Course to meet current visa requirements. TEFL COURSE

" I try not to listen to stereotypes, I know my mum was quite scared about me coming out but I told her it’s not what you think. China is new, fresh and exciting. You can find stuff on the internet to ease your mind but for me, I’m quite stubborn so once I’d made up my mind to come, I thought just do it! "
