Teaching visas and work permits

As a reputable company, EF provides legal teaching jobs in China with correct working papers. EF pays for and arranges all visas for your arrival to your new job.

A visa is necessary to enter the country and can be easily obtained at the Chinese embassies or consulates in your country of residence. Attaining this visa can take up to 2 months so it is best to plan accordingly.

Our teaching jobs in China include on-going teacher training. All EF schools have a Director of Studies known as a DOS. This person has a wealth of experience within the world of ESL and will assist in the professional development of the teaching staff. S/he will hold a new teacher orientation program that includes an in-depth explanation of the courses, curriculum, resources and methodology. To hone your teaching skills and help you do your jobs better, EF offers continuous professional development meetings on a weekly basis.

Chinese language lessons
