1. Take care of your visas
Buckland Group is responsible for all your visa and residence requirements once the teacher has arrived in China. Normally, teachers arrive in China with a short-term work visa with our invitation paper, which they obtain by their own means in their home country. Upon their arrival, Buckland commences the process of extending their work visa. Buckland has a professional team that takes care of all the necessary paper work for your visa applications, which can save you a lot of time and clear your concerns and troubles on paperwork. The Buckland Administration staff keeps the records of the expiry dates of all our teachers' visas and notifies each person in a timely manner so that you will never have panic or expense on visa expiration.
