Teach abroad in China

Another long-time favorite destination for aspiring TEFL teachers is China. The good news is you can still teach in China. And with a huge diversity of lifestyles and work contracts on offer in this vast country, it’s not hard to see why.

While China’s borders are largely closed to foreign visitors, they are open to travelers entering the country on a C visa–which is the visa used by English teachers. You will be able to organize the visa with your us (CYI) before you arrive in China, and when you arrive, you will have to quarantine for 14 days as a safety precaution. Not to worry though, we will go with you every step of the way

You’ll also need to check your flight routes – direct flights from some countries (such as the UK) are currently not available but you can fly from another destination, making use of the transit. In China, Covid restrictions can vary from place to place.  For example, all Shanghai and Zhejiang areas are currently considered low risk, but some restrictions are in place, regarding green code and negative test – all this CYI will help you navigate through and guide. 

Overall, the CDC currently rates the Covid travel risk in China as low.

Follow these steps before you go.

Before you make any plans to teach abroad, make sure you:

Check the latest travel advice from your country.

Make sure you check for the most up-to-date travel information before making travel plans.

Follow the rules.

Many countries have different rules for overseas travelers to follow in light of the health crisis. 

These may include quarantines and taking tests before and after you travel. Keep yourself and others safe by following the rules for the country you are traveling to.
