What are the requirements for getting a Work Permit for China?
Can I just get my work visa in Shanghai? Why do I need to go to Hong Kong? I’m currently holding an F visa. I’ve received different advices on how to process my work visa (I’ll be signing a work contract in Shanghai soon) that I don’t know which is true anymore. It would be better if I don’t have to go to Hong Kong. Please help.
