You will need a number of things like letter from the institute that has hired the teacher etc. The Z visa process completion can take many days and the wait for the visa is a pretty long one.


But what if you do not have a degree? Now there will be a number of aspirants who must be eager to teach in China but they do not have a Bachelor’s degree. What can be done?
