Shenzhen arrests visa-dodging English teachers

teach-English-in-China.jpgThe Shenzen Daily reports on a crackdown on English teachers working in the southern Chinese city without a visa.

Several foreigners who do not possess valid teaching certificates or working permits were arrested at English training centers in Nanshan District recently.

They were suspected of illegal employment and were taken away by the exit-entry management department of the Nanshan District’s Public Security Sub-bureau for further investigation, Shenzhen Economic Daily reported yesterday.

The bureau did not reveal how many foreigners had been arrested or give further details as investigations into the cases are still continuing.

At present, there are about 13,000 foreign residents living in Nanshan District, accounting for 42 percent of the expatriate population in the city.
