    Well, if this is China, the requirements are probably more strict. If I remember when I tried to do that, being a native english speaker is not enough. You HAVE to have a passport from a country like the US, Canada, the UK, etc. Even if you speak english perfectly and as a first-language, if you don't hold a passport from one of what they consider to be english speaking countries, you are not eligible for a work visa as an english teacher (unless the laws have become less strict since I last checked around the beginning of 2010, though I would doubt it).

    Another issue I came across was being asian. Not only do the chinese only want people from an english-speaking country, they seem to only want whites (or at least non-asians). To them, the image they have of "foreigners" and english-speakers are white people. I'm not sure how they feel towards blacks. I was told I looked too "chinese" and thus my application was discarded (I am of asian descent but not of chinese descent).

    Now, I don't know if you as the owner of the place, you'd be able to get people who aren't holders of a passport of one of the english-speaking countries or those who are of asian descent a work visa to work for you or not. It does't really matter. I'm sure there are enough whites from english-speaking countries that you wouldn't need to bother with those types of cases.

    Anyway, could have interested me (I did teach english during a winter camp to children for 2 weeks in South Korea), but I don't have a teaching certification. And I'm asian. And I don't have a passport from an english-speaking country. But I think it's a good thing that you are searching for people here. I think it's really cool and I'd definitely have wanted to try if I were eligible.

    Hello there, thanks.

    Unfortunately the visa rule hasn't changed, if any it is more strict. A lot of my non-native friends got denied and have to leave. The requirements I put down are the absolute minimal of getting a work visa. Your concern is correct, race however is never a concern of mine. Government rules on the other hand is out of my ability, unless you hold a native speaking country passport (UK, US, AU, NZ, CA etc.) there is nothing I can do, the law is the law.
    It is what it is

    Wonder if I could apply for this job as a native Mandarin speaker holding a foreign passport from a English speaking country? I did teach kids and young adults English when I was at uni in China.
    My family would love the idea of me moving back and being 'closer' to them~
