When will English teachers be able to enter China?
There are currently flights into China and the Chinese embassy has announced most Europeans who have a China work visa (work permit) can now re-enter China. Schools across China have been open since June, with safety guidelines in place such as required mask, routine temperature checks, enforced social distancing and regular disinfection of facilities. Business and travel within China is now back to normal.
From August 18th, 2020, the Chinese Visa Application Service Center in the UK announced that they are accepting work visa applications for the following:
1) British citizens and applicants from any of the 35 other European countries who hold a valid Foreigner’s Residence Permit of China for work, private matters or family reunion, and who need to go to China for the same visiting purpose as shown on the Residence Permit.
2) Applicants who have an “Invitation Letter (PU/TE)” or “Verification Confirmation of Invitation” issued by the Foreign Affairs Office of the provincial government of the intended visit, to visit China for economic, trade, scientific, technological, culture or sport purposes.
Due to COVID-19, there have been delays getting documents notarized and authenticated, so we highly recommend that you begin the process as soon as possible.
