The most common jobs and wages in China.
One of the most common vacancies in 2016 is the position of an English teacher. And the range of applicants for such vacancies is 22-60 years. Teachers are usually required for three types of posts: public schools, private schools and pre-school institutions.
The salary for teachers of public schools is on average 6000-8000 CNY per month (900-1200 $). Teachers of private schools are paid almost twice as much as 9000-15000 CNY (1350-2275 $). Teachers of preschool children’s institutions receive 5000-12000 CNY (760-1820 $) per month of work. CNY – the international abbreviation of the Chinese yuan.
Similar proposals, but already to professors at the professors level, are also often found in the lists of popular vacancies. For example, the post of teacher of Arabic language at the University of Changchun. For 12-18 hours of work per week there are willing to pay 5000-8000 CNY monthly salary and provide free of charge a comfortable apartment for the duration of the work.

Working conditions and knowledge of the language.
The length of the working day established by the Chinese legislation (article 36 of the Labor Law) is 8 hours. The amount of time worked per week should not exceed 44 hours. The schedule covers the entire spectrum of state-owned companies, including private business entities. Foreign companies or firms with foreign capital must also comply with the requirements of the law.
Meanwhile, the Chinese employer has the right to increase the duration of the working day, if the nature of production so requires. However, such actions must be coordinated with the trade union organization and the work collective. In case of unforeseen circumstances (a natural disaster, an accident) daily working hours are allowed to increase without agreement, but not more than 3 hours and not more than 36 hours during the month.
The same law “On Labor” defines the system of payment for overtime. If over hours hours were worked out on a working day, processing is paid at the rate of 150% of the salary. Overtime, dropped out on weekends, is paid from the calculation of 200% of the salary. Employment on non-working holidays assumes payment at a rate of 300% of monthly charges.
One of the important criteria that helps to quickly find a job that satisfies the needs of applicants is knowledge of the Chinese language. Good language knowledge at the level of the so-called Mandarin is considered good. In Russian society, such an interpretation of the name of the Chinese language is extremely rare. “Mandarin” is a collection of Chinese language dialects – Putuanhua, huayu, goyu. This is the basic training, which should be guided by job seekers in China.

The subtleties of processing a work visa to China.
Immigrants intending to go to the Middle Kingdom for work, to enter the country will have to issue a work visa (classified as a Z-visa). Before applying, a foreign citizen must acquire a work permit in China. As a rule, the Z-visa provides for a one-time visit to the country and does not indicate the length of stay.
Video about obtaining a work visa.
After receiving the Z visa, the immigrant must enter the territory of China within 90 days. A foreigner who arrives in the country is given 24 hours to fill out the Temporary Residence Registration Form and not more than 1 month to permanently register a temporary residence permit with the local Public Security Bureau. This service issues a residence permit in China (China Residence Permit) on the basis of the Z visa. The permit gives the opportunity to repeatedly enter the country during the year and determines the specific period of stay of the foreigner in China.

Consequences for trying to illegally work in China.
Immediately it should be noted: foreigners found guilty of illegal entry into China, illegal residence or illegal employment, can eventually be deported and get a ban on visiting the country for 5 years.
According to the new immigration law, for every illegally employed immigrant, an employer faces a fine of 10,000 to 100,000 yuan. The new version of the law provides for the obligatory availability of documents from a foreign worker:
identity card, work permit, residence permit in the country.
If they are not available, the immigrant can be fined from 5,000 to 20,000 yuan. In some cases, in addition to the penalty, detention is applied.
Foreigners living in the country illegally, for the first time, can get by with an oral warning. However, if you ignore the warning, the offender will be fined up to 10,000 yuan and imprisoned for 5 to 15 days.

Business immigration as a way to move to China.
Moving to the Middle Kingdom through investment methods is an option for acquiring a residence permit, which involves significant investments in the Chinese economy. On this score, the authorities put forward proposals, the cost of which is from 500 thousand to 2 million dollars. Everything depends on the region of the country where the businessman is ready to invest. These funds are usually considered as the authorized capital of business created on the territory of the country.

Wealthy aliens Chinese authorities are always ready to receive and serve the upper class – quickly register a permanent place of residence. Investors do not even need to provide proof of language knowledge. Temporary residence permit can be obtained together with the purchase of Chinese real estate. However, it is almost impossible to become a citizen of the Celestial Empire.
Immigration in business involves the issuance of a visa type “M”, which requires documents:
an application from a foreign investor, one color photo of 35×45 mm, a foreign passport in the original and copies of important pages, an invitation from the Chinese business community, a confirmation letter from authorized Chinese institutes, a license or a certificate confirming the applicant’s status as an investor or owner of the company.
Plans of a potential immigrant with Chinese employment – the venture is quite justifying itself. Many of those who now comfortably settled in the Middle Kingdom began with a work visa and a work permit. The work is interesting and opens up wide horizons for foreigners. It remains only to go forward, in order to achieve the intended goal.
