Articles : Nikwestside commented on news 5 Types of Foreigner You’ll Meet in the Chinese Workplace

I think you make a pretty good point there actually. Non-westerners are probably just so darn happy to be in a place that is not their flawed home country. Smug Westerners, on the other hand, will look at China and find so many things lacking; sub-par insulation and ventilation, undrinkable tap water and too much ... Full Comment>>

Nice catch. If you're still on probation you will not get any severance pay, and your 30-day notice will be significantly shorter (three days, I believe). That means you certainly have a valid reason to be on edge during your probation, although a lot of companies will have shorter probation periods for foreigners - ... Full Comment>>

That's quite the comment you have there. First things first - yes, it should be noted that this guide refers to Beijing, I'll see to it that it is clearly stated in it. Obviously, you won't know the names of these documents if your visa officer/HR person is taking care of it for you. A new health check is not always ... Full Comment>>

I'd also add Alipay in and by itself as a reasonable option, but it requires that you have a friend with a Chinese ID card that you can trust. The app can actually send money to foreign bank accounts but only allows accounts that are connected to a Chinese citizen to do it. The limit should be 10,000 RMB for every ... Full Comment>>

Hi Dracon44, you're probably right. China's new regulations are not as much becoming stricter, as they are just catching up to international norms. With that out of the way, what on earth are you talking about? The PSB can't issue visas, as that falls under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Not to ... Full Comment>>
