Visa application: Before coming to teach in our College

1. If youre going to teach in our college from abroad , you should apply for a new Z visaWorking Visa and here below are documents you need to send us by email or fax at least two months earlier than your departure for Changzhou:

 

Personal CV (both in English and Chinese)

Copy of Passport Photopage (including your accompanying family members)

Relationship certificate between applicant and your accompanying family member

Copy of Degree Diplomas and Professional qualification certificates

At least one formal recommendation letters (Letters from Foreign Affairs Office of Chinese universities where you used to teach at are preferred.)

Copy of signed working contract

Signed non-criminal commitment or Certificate of Non-criminal Record

Health Certificate (including your accompanying family members. If you have one; not exactly necessary; you can also make one after you arrive Changzhou.)

A photo (2 inch size, colored, no hat; if not by post, at least scanned by email)

Please also tell us at which Chinese Embassy or Consulate you would like to apply for your visa and when you plan to arrive Changzhou.

 

We will apply for a Foreign Teachers Working Permit and a Visa Notice Form (Official Invitation Letter) from the government authorities and post them to you by EMS to your home address. Then you can go to the Chinese Embassy or Consulate with these two documents to apply for your Z visa and come to Changzhou. If you have accompanying family members, they also need to apply for this visa.

 

2. If you move to Changzhou directly from other universities or schools in China and your current Z visa, Foreign Experts Certificate and Residence Permit are still valid for at least one month, you can extend them in Changzhou. If you cant come to Changzhou by yourself, you should post the following documents to us by EMS at least one month earlier than the expiration date:

 

Personal CV (including Chinese and English CV)

Original Passport (which should include your current Z visa and residence permit; including your accompanying family members.)

Foreign Experts Certificate (if not Original, at least a copy of all pages)

《外国专家来华工作许可证》存根(已提交该项材料的不需提交以下第613项材料)

Relationship certificate between applicant and your accompanying family member

Signed non-criminal commitment or Certificate of Non-criminal Record

Copy of Degree Diplomas or Professional qualification certificates

We will extend your documents here in Changzhou and post them back to you by EMS about one month later. If you have accompanying family members, please also send us their original passport, valid health certificate and 4 photos.

(Commonly we DO NOT advise you to do so because: its a bit dangerous to post the passport by mail; sometimes the government won’t allow us to extend your residence permit if they found that you actually havent arrived Changzhou yet and it may cause us some trouble; the documents can only be extended for at most one year, which means that if you post them to us in June, it can only be extended to June of the next year which is commonly not long enough for your teaching period and we need to extend them again the next year. So if you have plan to go back to your home country during the vacation, we strongly advise you to apply for a new Z visa again there.)

Please open a bank account in the ABC with your name on passport and then give the receipt of your applying for a bank card to the international office. This bank card will include your work payment and other allowance. The amount shown on the bank statement is after tax.

The first month salary will include RMB 500 Goods purchase fee for new teachers.

E-card

CCIT offers a school E-card to every faculty member who signs a formal working contract with the college for at least one school year. The E-card is useful for entry and consumption in the school library, dining halls, supermarkets, and other public facilities on campus.

E-card should be returned to the International office before your departure when you finish your contract with the college.

 

 

 

Tax of your income

 

You need to pay tax for all your income in each month. And according to the taxing law of China, here below is the current taxing ratio of the monthly income:

 

(Monthly Income - 4800)                   tax ratio                  minus

____<1500                                  3%                     0

1500<____<=4500                           10%                    105

4500<___<=9000                            20%                    555

9000<___<=35000                           25%                   1005

35000<___<=55000                          30%                   2755

 

For example, if your monthly salary is:6000;

 

Then your tax will be:

6000-4800=1200 (<1500)

1200*3%=36

36-0=36

 

If your monthly salary is:8000;

 

Then your tax will be:

6000-4800=3200 (1500<3200<=4500)

3200*10%=320

320-105=215

 

If you receive income from other place, it will be also calculated into your total income of this month, and you need to pay tax for your total income, which you got during the 1st day to the 31st day of the whole month.

 

You can check your bank account each month and in case you found mistakes, please feel free to confirm with the international office.
