Q.「Do I have to get an Agent throughout the process?」
It really depend on your employer.
If your employer help you throughout the process, the answer is: NO
If your employer hopes you to do it on your own, the answer is: YES. and keep all receipts to report to your employer.

Agent (if u need one.)

based in Shanghai, China 上海、中国
m.p: +86 134 8252 2929
→ say you were referred by the singaporean guy 余先生

Q.「How long does it usually takes for all the process to get completed whole-fully?」
It takes about (at least) 1-2months

Q.「What if the employee has been residing in China. Does He/ She still has to go back to home country & apply Z-visa?」
Sad to say, YES.
There's rumor that you can do it in Hongkong, but for most cases,
they would ask you to go back and apply Z-VISA (working visa) back in your home country.

Q.「How long does the process will take "approximately" in my home-country?」
It's really hard to say.
If u are lucky like me o(^▽^)o. It takes 5 Working Days.
2 working days of HEALTH CHECK results (Ask for. URGENT)
3 working days of Z-VISA processing (Ask for. EXPRESS Process)
However, the most safe way is to plan your trip for 2 week,
although 1 week is possible and consider as RUSH luck ♣
