27 May What is the visa regime for foreigners who want to work in China?
Foreigners who want to work in China must obtain a work permit along with their corresponding visa and subsequently apply for a residence permit. To obtain a work visa, it is necessary for the employer in China to apply for an employment license with the Local Labor and Social Security Bureau in order to hire a foreign citizen, as well as a letter of notification of work visa.
On the other hand, the expatriate must make a Z-type visa application at the Chinese Embassy or Consulate in their country of origin. Upon your arrival in China, you must apply for a work permit before the Local Labor and Social Security Bureau, as well as a residence permit at the police station corresponding to your residence in China, within 30 days of your arrival at the police station.
