Medical Insurance

Are there any agencies or units appointed specifically to be responsible for affairs concerning foreign teachers’ medical insurance, employment permits (work permits), life adaptation, housing, etc.?

Yes. Either the local governments should assign an advisory panel for English teaching or the local school at which the foreign teacher teaches should be responsible for such affairs.

Are foreign teachers covered by any insurance?

Yes. To ensure foreign teachers’ rights and interests, they should apply for and be covered by National Health Insurance and Labor Insurance as soon as they are employed and pay the relevant insurance fees in conformity with relevant laws and regulations.
