A proper work visa application should contain the following documents provided by the employee:
We work with your employer to process the work permit prior to your arrival for work, which usually takes about two weeks.
Once we have completed the paperwork with your employer and sent you the Letter of Z Visa Notification, you will need to apply at the nearest China Visa Application Center or, if your country does not have one, at your nearest Chinese embassy.
You should apply for your visa approximately one month prior to your entry into China. Visas have a limited validity, so do not apply too early.
It usually takes four working days to process the application.
