Hi Lionel

It depends on which visa you would get for yourself. If you go there to work on a Z Visa, your family should be covered as well. If you intend on staying for a few years though, you would need to get a residence permit.

Have a look at our Visas for China and Work Permits for China pages, which give an overview of the process you'd need to undertake.

Good luck, I hope you and your family have a long, happy stay.

Best,

Xavier
