The Ultimate Guide To Becoming An Expat Car Owner In China read more
Apr-2nd-2020 | Post by expatree
More than 21 million cars were sold in China in 2019, according to Pymnts. Convenience, as well as the rising cost of taxis and other modes of public transport, has resulted in an increasing number of expats choosing to purchase their own vehicles. So, whether you’re a new expat in China or an experienced one, how do you go about purchasing your own car?

Setting a budget
The McKinsey China Auto Insights Report found that the most desirable price of a new vehicle is between 200,000 and 300,000 RMB. The good news is that if you have lived in China for at least a year, you are eligible to apply for an auto loan. This means you’ll be able to pay for your new vehicle in monthly installments, rather than in one lump sum, making car ownership a lot more affordable. Alternatively, if you’d prefer to save some cash, it’s worth considering a used vehicle, as figures from Statista reveal that these have an average price tag of 62,000 RMB.

Buying investment in your non-native country can be a rewarding, if risky, endeavor. It’s essential to know the ins and outs of the market in that country, as well as rules and restrictions and the best areas to buy. As with any real estate investment, it’s not something that you should rush into without at least a cursory knowledge of how it works. Moreover, financing your purchase through a bank with unfamiliar regulations can make it even more daunting.

As a result, the nation’s health is diminishing, and China’s healthcare services are stretched. But this is good news if you’re an expat with a nursing degree behind you, as you’ll be able to seamlessly transition into expat life with a meaningful job in tow.

Becoming a nurse in China

If you wish to become a registered nurse in one of China’s developing cities, such as Shanghai or Bejing, you’ll need to prove that you’re serious about the role.
