    Hi all,

    A company I was offered a contract with, in Changsha, has just submitted the paperwork to the local foreign affairs office. Everything looked good according to the FAO of the school I'm potentially going to be working for. I wanted to know how long does it take typically for the local FAO take to process the documents? I intend on going in August but it may be later due to the visa process. I wanted to know a time frame of when I would be hearing back from the schools FAO with work visa information? This is my first go around as last time I didn't get past the medical check. This time I'm close! Thanks for any helpful information. :)

    What exactly has been ”applied” for as there are 3 possible combinations.

    1.Permission to employ foreigners.
    2.Z visa.
    3.Work visa + Residence.

    If its number 3 it should only take 10 working days as parts 1&2 have been completed.
