The decision to grant or deny the application for a visa is a decision of the Embassy or Consulate to which the application is made, and as such is outside the control of Teacher Link. The responsibility for, and accuracy of, the information contained in the visa application is solely that of the applicant. The applicant is solely responsible for their own visa and legal status in the host country. Visa information requirements, visa fees and visa issuing times are subject to change by foreign governments without notice, so Teacher Link does not assume responsibility for the accuracy of the information provided. It is the applicant’s responsibility to contact the respective visa issuing authorities to make sure that they have sufficient time, money and documentation to successfully apply for their visa. Teacher Link does not assume liability for delayed, lost or stolen visas and/or passports.
It is not the responsibility of Teacher Link to provide you with a work permit. Once you are working at a school, the school will provide you with a sponsorship package to take to the embassy in either Hong Kong or your home country where you’ll convert your tourist visa into a work Z visa (teaching visa). Converting your visa can also be done from within China and the process takes at least six to eight weeks to complete.
