    As far as I know, you won’t be able to work legally in Chengdu unless you are from a native-English speaking country. If your English is good enough you might still be able to find a job here, but you will be taking a risk, and recently it seems that China is a lot harder in visa violations. We recorded a podcast recently with an American who was teaching English on an incorrect visa type and was imprisoned for a month… consider carefully! Good luck.

    Well, it won’t be easy if you’re not coming from a “native-English speaking” country. However, you can give it a shot by visiting Chengdu for a short period. Bring your certificates and make sure your experience counts in China.

    Have got to agree to @charlie‘s comment; be careful before signing a contract with schools here. Paperwork required/set of rules for obtaining work permit has changed as well.

    “I want get a job first and get a work visa . And then i can go there”

    Again, it won’t be easy if you aren’t a native-English speaker focusing on a teaching career. Visit sites like lagou.com, zhipin.com if you’re willing to consider a different career path. Look at internship options as well.

    All the best!

    I think it would be better to look for work in a firm here from Indonesia in a different line of work , they will be more likely to obtain a valid work permit for you. You can only legally earn money with a work permit and work residence permit. So don’t sign contracts with schools or English centers that say you can earn money while doing an internship on a student visa and get paid.

    It will be easier to look for teaching work outside of Chengdu in the rural areas i think.

    If the company is a WFOE in China then they don’t have as much requirements as a local company to employ foreigners.

    You will still need the basics :

    Highest education paper

    No criminal Record paper

    Health certificate.

    Proof of 2 years work experience

    Take note they might be asked for a valid reason to employ you over a Chinese national and this is a gamble it is not a guarantee.
