US Criminal Records Check
Many teachers who teach English in China will enjoy their experience so much that they will want to stay a second year or longer. However, once you have one year of teaching experience, many of you realize that you can either get better jobs or more suitable jobs. But life isn’t that simple, and some of your employers will not give you a release letter on your canceled work permit, and you will need to re-do your work visa process.
Good news! If you are a US citizen in China, or anywhere else outside US, and need to obtain a State Level Criminal Records Check from US, you are in luck.
For Teach Recruiting has partnered with Authenticate China to provide our teachers a US Criminal Records Check plus Authentication Services in just 8 business days. Authenticate China.
Step 1: Download the Chinese Embassy Legalization Form
Click on Chinese Legalization Application Form, download a form and fill out the form in all CAPS. If you do not know how to fill the form out, just fill it out to as much as possible, and we will help you complete the rest.
Step 2: Fill out the order form and select the services.
In the order form, fill out your full name matching your passport, as well as other fields. In the product page, select the Overseas Teacher CRC package. This package includes the criminal records check, authentication fee, and return shipping to China.
Step 3: Upload a color scan of your passport
In the order form, you must upload a color scan of your passport that includes the info page as well as the signature page. The Chinese Embassy may reject unclear scans or photos of your passport.
Step 4: Submit the order and wait!
Once you submit the order, just wait and relax. In 8 business days, you will be e-mailed a scan copy of the authenticated CRC and the hard copy will be shipped to your address. Please bear in mind- ORDERS placed after 8AM on a working day will take 1 extra day due to the cut off time for the notarization/state legalization.
Need your Degree or TEFL authenticated? We can help you with those too! In the order form, go to the Document Authentication Product section, select Document Authentication, and select the quantity of documents you will need authenticated.
Does TEFL need to be Notarized or Authenticated?
That depends on the city you will work in. In Beijing, you will need to authenticate your TEFL. In Shenzhen, you will just need to notarize it.
Valuable Tip: a TEFL notarization is only valid for one year. You will need to notarize it if you want to change jobs the following year. Authenticate your TEFL, and its forever!
