Horizon Recruitment

Explaining How The Visa & Arrival Process Works

  1. You provide your documents (resume, degree, copy of your passport, current photo and reference letter)
  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. You get the non-criminal record from the local police station in your home country
  5. You get the degree notarization from Chinese embassy or you can do this through Chinese Service Center for Scholarly Exchange(CSCSE) in Beijing: http://renzheng.cscse.edu.cn/Login.aspx
  6. The school starts the online visa application after submitting all of the above documents to the government system
  7. The school will then bring the copies of your documents, including the non-criminal record, medical check, contract and degree notarization to the FAO (Foreign Affairs Office) to be approved for a Work Permit (1-2 weeks)
  8. Assuming success, the school will send the Work Permit and documents you provided to the PSB to get the Invitation Letter (1-2 weeks)
  9. Once the Invitation Letter has been issued, the school will mail you the Work Permit and Invitation Letter (3-5 days)
  10. 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)
  11. Book your flight (We recommend you only book one way, China is a place where you will probably stay longer)
  12. Once approved , you can come to China
  13. Upon arrival, the school will pick you up in the host city and take you to your accommodation, school, etc.
  14. 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
  15. 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
