Friends, we got a lot of questions, whether it is possible to change jobs, while in China, and to eshtё without leaving the country. Reply – is possible! And now more talk about how, now I can say with certainty, and that kind of experience I have.
With all the stories of our previous employer, that as soon as the contract ends, we just need to leave China, we were in a big doubt, that it will be possible to make a new working residence permit without leaving the country.
On the other hand, effective working residence permit, I had to 31 of October and we are quietly traveled to Shenzhen. So, how to make the extension of the working residence permit in China.
When I found a new job, revealed, that the question of a new residence permit here lies on the shoulders of teachers and it is their responsibility, deliver all necessary documents and pay fees. In this case, the kindergarten has a license and throughout should help.
This question is not a fundamental, I will pay a fee, only be made.
I will write about the required documents are not so, “through one place”, I received them, and as it should be.
Список необходимых документов для продления рабочего ВНЖ
From a previous employer:
- Leaves of absence letter (release letter)
- Information about the closing of a work permit (foreign expert certificate)
- The results of the medical board (depended on provinces, employer, etc.)
Of English teachers:
- Diploma of Higher Education (not below the bachelor)
- Chinese translation of the diploma
- Summary kitayskom yazыke

- ESL certificate translation into Chinese
- Privacy (Statement of Integrity)
From the new employer:
- Resolution on the hiring of foreign workers, and what happens if it is not
- Business license
- Your original contract with the employer
And another little instruction on the process of obtaining a new residence, It was based on personal experience:
- When the employer's Complicated
- How to get a new work book (blue book)
- Interviews with the police
- Timing of new residence permits
- The new rules
- Blacklisting schools in China
So, start with the necessary documents.
Leaves of absence letter (release letter)
When dismissing the old work we were given a piece of paper, that contract expires on a certain date, (we even in August) and the employer must give you a recommendation (furlough) a letter in Chinese (release letter) for the next employer, if it can, it eshte and angliyskom.
There shall bear the stamp company to hire you, Set the period of your work with this employer, it contact details. You need original this letter with a stamp – it shows the next employer, that you have worked in good faith in their contract and the problems you did not have, while still showing your experience in China.
Отмена разрешения на работу (foreign expert certificate)
The following paragraph – Working blue book (blyubuk). To be honest, it should be in your hands, but some employers keep her at, to be able to manipulate, just like in our school New Windows. When you finish a contract, the school must cancel your work permit – in other words, the Department of Labor served your blue book and severance letter. In the hands, thereafter, You will get an A4 document with a seal, your WP, number so and so, canceled. Now, this letter and severance closed blyubukom, you can settle for another job, in any province.
It's all a positive balance of, when your last employer crystal honest and doing everything according to the rules, and you are on good terms.
Сложности с работодателем
Another embodiment, when you are in doubt about the employer, like me, and all are trying to do remotely, after all, they have promised to help me with the documents when applying for a new place, therefore an English I vyzvanival, a week later I sent him a photo. Week and a half they were closing the blue book (all busy), and Chinese holidays all fortnight. An English one did not suit and a couple of days waiting for the letter with a stamp, на китайском, and the time passed since.
And it is a sad one, when the employer you are all bad and you leave, what often occurs.
For example, в New Windows (where we work) in the middle of the semester left one teacher, unhappy relationship with the leadership of. He found a job в Пекине and moved there.
Another teacher waited for the start of the month, when she paydays, and left without strife, in a quiet (know about the wacky 900 dollars damages for breach of contract). She was not going to continue to work in China, but also succeeded in, before leaving home, a couple of weeks to travel to different cities. Residence permit her nobody closed, probably do not care to.
When you have finished working on the contract, the employer is obliged to perform all procedures, it may, but does not have to close your residence permit. On this we can agree, anyway, most schools also have a dark side, are not please the educational commission.
I have found information, alien closed their documents without the help of old-school, his friend took the documents to the immigration police. On this I will add in the comments.
The following paragraph – It's job search, but preferably, that all processes run parallel.
To get a new work book again you will need to put together a package of the following documents:
Диплом о высшем образовании и его перевод на китайский язык
Transfer his engineer's diploma I gave 600 yuan. By 150 yuan for the page, from English into Chinese, they assured the Russian original. Translation from Russian would cost 200 yuan for the page. They also make the license of the Translation Bureau, and finished documents sent by courier.
Other office, where I translated TEFL certificate, takes on 100 yuan for the page, they do transfer a lot faster, took away the finished documents himself, but they refused to do the translation from the English version. Translation from russkogfor they also Cost 200 yuaney for sheet.
Перевод резюме на китайский язык
To translate the summary and any small documents is an ideal, if you have a Chinese friend, which says in Russian, helped me a lot Yunfey. If it will be necessary help translated into Chinese and Russian, contact, happy to share his contacts!
Регистрация в полиции по месту жительства
In parallel, it is necessary to get the registration with the local police. According to the law, and so you have to register with the police, but many do not care about it and no one asks them to. Maybe, you're staying with friends, it well, and it does not matter, Police just need to know, where you live. At the police station the officer filled all by herself on the computer, but good luck in the department was a girl, who spoke in English, it helped us to translate questions and communicate with the police. A couple of pictures, too, need to take with you.
ESL Certificate – TEFL/TESOL/CELTA и его перевод на китайский язык
Not necessary to have specialized education, to start work as a teacher in China, but need ESL certificate, is one of the documents, which indicates, that you are qualified in this field and due to changes in legislation, it is important to show your work experience in this field. Confirmation – your closed work book from the last place of work.
The commentary was the right question about the severity of the rules in different provinces, I can confirm, in Shenzhen and ask TEFL, and experience.
For example, One teacher received TEFL, but confirm his teacher's work experience, he could not, because his teaching activities had previously been illegal for an F, and turned, that this will be his first teaching positions.
In Shenzhen, this is strictly, for non-native speaker'ov trebuût work experience, can not say anything about the other provinces, кроме personal experience in Baoding. I think in a small town in Hebei Province, he would have issued a work permit. Even ESL would not have asked! We the first job did not ask.
Privacy (Statement of Integrity)
Another item: many write, that visa demanded police clearance certificate from the country of, where the applicant was born. You can get help and Russian consulates in China, and to extend the working residence permit, I was asked to write Declaration of my good intentions.
Form, like, Free, I already had an example, made by the applicant prior.
I share here – Declaration of good conduct in Chinese (where are highlighted in red, need to change, in another city if you are applying, of course another place of birth, Address).
Need to write in Chinese and English, briefly – never prosecuted, illicit affairs will not do, date, signature.
Подача заявления на новое разрешение на работу (на синюю книжку)
You sit down at the computer with the employer and he, through an online form, submits an application for the grant you a new work permit. Do not worry, they need to know, where and how to submit an application.
Then all this pile of documents, plus license, the employer is the Ministry of Labour and you make out a new work book. Still need to take photos in the agency, which knows how to draw pictures, which are then fit to the Immigration Bureau.
Собеседование в полиции
A week after the submission of the application, I saw and held in the hands of its new blue book. On the same day, we filled out several questionnaires, which can be taken to the police. These questionnaires are going to the police for an interview.
Sometimes the police can ask you some questions, типа: how many teachers work in your school? Or: “Why did you decide to come and work in China?” These police say in English, but sometimes nothing at all do not ask.
When the interview is successfully completed, you can no longer worry, last phase – this submission to the immigration bureau of documents, the working residence permit.
Оформление нового рабочего ВНЖ
Bear with me a few copies of your passport, existing residence permit, You will be picked up and the original passport and a copy of your working blue book.

When you hand over your passport, you give your hands a piece of paper that, that your passport is being processed and you are legally in the territory of China.
Promised to issue a passport 14 November, which is approximately 3 weeks from the date of filing.
After reading about the new types of visas and regulations filing, I was very upset, all procedures, application for a record book, etc., we started two weeks before the expiry of my valid residence permit, rather than by month how written in proper, but everything worked out and finished with a passport sticker I got.
The new rules
Let's just say, it is now more difficult to become a teacher in China from scratch, if the experience in this area do not. For legal work in the big city, as Shenzhen, you must have a teaching certificate and experience.
Many still continue to work illegally, Nate speakers, including. They are not steamed and work on business (M) or tourist visa (The).
Можно ли работать по бизнес визе M (F)?
In the comments we wrote, that maybe it's for the best: not tied to a single employer, have the freedom to go to another. But illegal work has dark side, the employer may not count you, set stupid rules, not pay wages, and in fact anything you can not argue! One can not call the police and tell, that for your work you do not pay.
More precisely, you can call, offended that some teachers and make – anonymously report, at school, or even illegals have problems with accounting. Then raid, Employer fined, but their salaries do not vernёsh. In this case, you can be in one of the schools, which offended the teacher will try to pass… And go home, vaezda without rights in China, during subsequent years n.
Blacklist of schools in China (blacklist)
Generally, one of the most important points, is the choice of the employer. Need to learn about the school reviews, Black lists are often disadvantaged employers, where teachers write the whole truth. From below at sites you can see examples of blacklisting schools and that school search, which are going to be arranged.

Take at least one example, we, received in the mail contract, refused to go to school, about which it was written a few bad reviews, that they are at least not going to make anyone work visa.
Well, in the correspondence they still offer us a first come on business visa… Generally, search for the name of the school to help all.
