After several months of trips and paperwork back and forth to the Chinese government offices, the paperwork for my work permit is done. I had to go through an extensive physical examination, submit my resume, work history, professional experience, references, letter from Schumacher Elevator saying that I was really going to China for a joint venture project, and even a letter from the Waverly Police Department saying that I was not a bad person with a criminal record. Whew! Now I still need to have some paperwork done in Chicago before I return. Here’s the team from Schumacher China that processed the paperwork.
