Initially, they handled most of the important stuff like housing, cell phone plan, internet, bank card, etc. Since then I have quite an extensive support structure with friends and coworkers, but SD still provides assistance for small things like transferring money back home and going to the hospital, if needed. The staff is usually available to handle non-vital things as well, and I’m very grateful for that.

They have helped me with applying for and renewing my working visa, opening a bank account, providing me with an apartment or suggesting an agent who will find an apartment for me, and helping me make documents to file taxes back home. Besides the big things, they will also help you with more menial day to day problems like purchasing a metro card, helping you take visa photos, receiving parcels on your behalf or translating for you at the bank.

Since I arrived in China, SDE has helped me get my visa sorted, find a place to live, how to get around the city, using the metro and other types of transports, get a bank account set up along with a mobile phone, and have helped me get out of some very serious situations. There are many more things that they have supported and assisted me with but these are just some of the main things.
