Working in CHINA!


#1

I currently have a clearance (Trying to upgrade it) but what are the rules on working in China?


#3

As a current clearance holder the first source for the answer to your question is your company FSO or agency SO. China is a designated country and as such, there are restrictions, protocols, and reporting requirements for any cleared personnel to travel or work there.


#4

Is your current employer trying to send you there? Or are you applying for a new position? Does the job in China require a clearance?

I suspect that more information is needed to answer your question . . .


#5

It just at the spur of the moment. It would be an internship.


#6

So . . . You have a clearance and are working? Come on . . . You have to provide some more information here or nobody is going to be able to address anything about your question.

I hold a secret clearance and I am in the process of getting my TS/SCI and I would like to go have some fun in China by taking on some jobs. I am not sure if it is a good idea holding a security clearance to go to China. When I been to China before I didn’t have a clearance.


#8

If you are in the process of getting you TS, you have a company or agency sponsoring you. I would suggest reaching out to the FSO of your sponsor. But, in general, I wouldn’t recommend going anywhere near China while in the process of applying for a clearance.

The CIA Station in Beijing will likely be asked to inspect its criminal, counterintelligence, and security files for derogatory information about your time in China.
