Last week the Ministry of Education announced in a draft that foreign teachers employed in China can now take up part-time work legally.

That’s great news for all the English teachers out there that have been wanting to take up some extra hours but haven’t because they’re honest law-abiding citizens…


But of course, it’s never as easy as just finding a second job. A signed agreement must be made between the foreign teacher, employee and part-time employer, before being submitted to the Exit and Entry Administration Department that we all know and love.


the draft [Chinese]:

It’s also worth noting that your part-time hours cannot exceed the hours contracting by your current employer.

As well as this change, there will also be stricter system in place to punish and dismiss foreign teachers who commit crimes whilst employed, but also reward good teachers by establishing a foreign credit system.

The State Council listed crimes including taking drugs, sexually assaulting or abusing minors, sexually harassing students that could result in immediate dismissal.

The draft also stated that the education institute will need to conduct a minimum 20 hours of training to teach foreign teachers of China’s laws.

These regulations announced in the draft have been published for ‘public feedback’ until August 21st, then authorities will have the option to revise the draft before formally adopting it.

What do you think about these new regulations? Let us know in the comments!

In view of the rapid spread of COVID-19 across the world, China has decided to temporarily suspend entry into China by foreign nationals holding visas or residence permits still valid to the time of this announcement, effective from 12 a.m., 28 march 2020. Entry by foreign nationals with APEC Business Travel Cards will be suspended as well. Policies including port visas, 24/72/144-hour visa-free transit policy, Hainan 30-day visa-free policy, 15-day visa-free policy specified for foreign cruise-group-tour through Shanghai Port, Guangdong 144-hour visa-free policy specified for foreign tour groups from Hong Kong or Macao SAR, and Guangxi 15-day visa-free policy specified for foreign tour groups of ASEAN countries will also be temporarily suspended. Entry with diplomatic, service, courtesy or C visas will not be affected. Foreign nationals coming to China for necessary economic, trade, scientific or technological activities or out of emergency humanitarian needs may apply for visas at Chinese embassies or consulates. Entry by foreign nationals with visas issued after this announcement will not be affected.

The suspension is a temporary measure that China is compelled to take in light of the outbreak situation and the practices of other countries. China will stay in close touch with all sides and properly handle personnel exchanges with the rest of the world under the special circumstances. The above-mentioned measures will be calibrated in light of the evolving situation and announced accordingly.
