Beijing has issued new guidelines that subject foreigners working in the capital to stricter scrutiny following the arrest of British sex offender Neil Robinson, South China Morning Post reported. The guidelines take effect Oct. 31, and require teachers to have at least five years of teaching experience before being allowed to work in the city’s institutions and schools. Foreign language workers will need to provide teaching qualifications, while all foreigners working in non-teaching jobs will be required to have at least a bachelor’s degree and two years of relevant work experience. In addition to Robinson, an unnamed American who was twice convicted of child pornography offenses in Illinois was found to have worked as an English teacher in Nanjing.
