COVID-19 & China border updates

Schools across China reopened in June and are now holding interviews for teachers for December 2020 to June 2021 start dates. We are in contact with more and more schools that can obtain PU letters (invitation letters) for teachers, needed to apply for a work visa. If you are already in China, your start date could be as soon as within a few weeks. If you are outside of China, taking into account the interview process and visa application process, your earliest start date could be around March 2021. China has begun easing border restrictions and issuing work visas for some teachers outside China
