Do you have to hand in both the criminal investigations record and criminal records check reply to the Chinese embassy?

This is my best advice.

Leave it to Biztrans. Let them walk you through it.

 I did it two years ago and it was much easier. Has there been a change in policy?
How would I do this as a Canadian citizen?

I called them and they told me it's much easier and faster to contact the embassy yourself and post everything.

Also your instructions are pretty incomplete. It would be great if you could say exactly which documents are needed and where and how to actually get the visa itself.

Thanks!

You are going to have to get your degree(s) and teacher certification authenticated by a Chinese embassy in the states.

Send digital copies to Biztrans, and they will do the leg-work in America.

You will need a criminal background check authenticated by a Chinese embassy in the states. I used a check from Korea. Biztrans will do the overseas leg-work on this also.

You will need a letter from your employer stating that you've been teaching for more than two years.

Lastly, you'll need a physical approved by the Chinese powers-that-be.

Digitally send these documents to your new employer. They will then send you a contract. Bring it all to the Chinese embassy in Korea. You will get your z-visa if everything is in order.

Hey, I'm from the UK so I guess it's the same as the states right?

I'm being asked for a background check from my home country but you can use one done in Korea as long as it's legalised by the embassy in your home country? This is super stressful because I can't go to my home country to do it!

Hopefully biztrans will be helpful like you said.

Biztrans have been extremely difficult so far, they've been very reluctant to take the work explaining that it will be very expensive and take maybe two months to do I'm unable to go myself so they are my last hope. Has anyone else had a better experience? It sounds like kengreen had someone at biztrans who was much more competent.

It cost me approximately 800 dollars, and the whole ordeal was rather time consuming. I can't remember exactly how long. Chinese red-tape is a real pain in the buttocks.

Make sure you go with a Korean to get your police check. It took me three separate times before I finally got it right. There is a special police check for Chinese authentication. Another pain in the buttocks.

Get a Korean to call Biztrans so that you can understand 100 percent of what they are saying. But it will be expensive and time consuming. It might even be more expensive and time consuming for a British citizen. Perhaps the company is geared toward North American clients.

On the plus side, China is a whole lot better than Korea. I'm loving it over here. Once you get past the paperwork headache, things will become much better. Good luck.

Good luck.

Will a character reference letter that happens to state you worked there for more than 2 years be OK?

or is there some particular format that is required.
Catch my drift?

No, you need letters from employers on their letterhead stating dates you worked, I was in China changing jobs from Chongqing to Shanghai and they needed signed letters from employers. I got a former colleague at my last job in Korea to write something on school letterhead your workdates.

It is on their letterhead and it does state the dates I worked from>to. Just, the main gist of the letter is character reference.

Z visa sounds like a bureaucratic nightmare.

You don't know the least of it in terms of getting a Z visa now, rules are always changing and can be different from province to province. At least in Korea its pretty consistent from province to province.

you can do both on a letter, character and dates, just get somebody to bs them
