Teaching in China?

When applying for a work permit to teach in China there are several document requirements. Your prospective employer should confirm exactly which documents are needed. Typically, the following THREE documents require legalisation -

  1. Degree Certificate - The focus of the degree does not usually matter.
  2. TEFL Certificate - There are many organisations in the UK that can offer TEFL courses.
  3. Police Check - A police check is usually requested. This should be no more than 6 months old.

Please note that these requirements are provided as general guidance. We advise checking with your future employer to clarify exactly which documents are necessary.

Most orders are completed in just 7-10 days!

Attesting Business Documents?

Conducting business in China often leads to attesting documents.

Whether you are entering into business contracts, exporting goods or signing agreements with businesses in China, it is common for UK firms to attest documents with the embassy in London.

Handling the service from start to finish we obtain both the apostille and the embassy attestation for you.

Please provide a copy of the company directors passports at the time of application (the embassy request these).

Processing time 7-10 days for most orders.

What does the Chinese attestation look like?

The Chinese embassy add a tamper proof label to the document. This is attached to the apostille to prevent anyone from changing the document after the attestation has been completed.

In most circumstances the apostille and the embassy's label will be added to the back of a document. However, the FCO and the embassy will use their discretion when deciding where to apply the certificates.

The corner of the label also includes a hologram.
