What do I need to know before moving to Tianjin?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Tianjin, they said...

"Come for what I call a looky-see trip first before committing to come live in this area to make sure you can find a decent home for you and your family. Get a good relocation company to help you look and negotiate for you. Everything in china is up for negotiation! Make sure your company is allowing you enough housing money per month to get you a good place to live and make sure you detail and negotiate EVERYTHING you want the place to have BEFORE you seal the deal and move into the place. *** When your contract for the house is up for renewal that is the time the owner will make other changes you need or forgot to ask for intitally to keep you in the place for another go round," remarked another expat who made the move to Tianjin, China.

"It is important to be prepared for the culture shock when moving to Tianjin, due to the large differences between Western and Chinese customs. Expats should research the laws and regulations of the country, which can be found on the websites of expat groups and the embassy of the local government. In addition, it is also prudent to have a good understanding of the local language and understand the local customs to ensure a smooth transition. Furthermore, they should be aware of the different visa and residence requirements, as expats from certain countries may require a specific type of visa and ID. Finally, finding suitable accommodation, in relation to distance from the workplace, should also be taken into account," explained one expat living in Tianjin, China, China.
