Arriving at your school with a homeland medical
By:Former FT in China
Date: 25 September 2016

If you have undertaken a medical exam in your homeland before entering China on a Z visa to teach, you have the right to refuse a second medical in China, provided that your homeland medical was taken up to 3 months prior to the start date of your employment contract.

Some employers will be offended when you refuse. Usually, they will try to put the skids under you by misinforming you that they can't offer you a teaching contract to sign until you take that 2nd medical, and pass it. That's bullshit. They will delay to put pressure on you. You can hold out, and force them to relent! They WILL relent!

The employment contract will be signed, stamped and 'backdated' by mutual agreement between you and your employer to the date you started teaching, instead of the actual date the contract was signed.
