The Z visa is a work visa issued by the Chinese government to foreign nationals for paid employment. Applicants must meet qualitative (educational qualification/past work experience) and quantitative (salary) requirements, which are scored to determine visa issuance.

An employment contract with a Chinese employer is also required to apply for the Z visa.

To work legally in China, you must file your Z visa application with the Chinese Embassy or Consulate in your jurisdiction. Within 30 days of entering China, Z visa holders must apply for a residence permit with the local authorities in charge of foreigners (Public Security Bureau PSB). This will allow you to work legally in China.
