The Philippine Embassy in Beijing reminded Filipinos and other nationalities: Foreigners cannot work in China as nannies, household workers or private tutors, as per Chinese law.

This warning was released in reiteration of existing Chinese laws and to increase awareness against recruitment agencies offering placements in China as the aforementioned jobs.

Furthermore, it was advised not to deal with agents or individuals in mainland China who also offer help in extending tourist visas in exchange for a fee.

Government records show that several thousands of Filipinos live and work in mainland China, mostly in managerial positions.
