BA + B Teaching...do I still need TESOL/CELTA?

Hi,

I am a recent university graduate planning to move to China in mid 2017.

I have a Bachelor in History and Chinese, as well as a Bachelor of Secondary Education (High School Teaching), which means that, in Australia, I'm allowed to teach History, Chinese and Italian (mothertongue).

So, while I have been trained to teach languages , I don't have an ESL specialisation...would it be better for me to get a CELTA/TESOL certification as well?

I also don't have the required two years teaching experience (only 2 term internship as part of my degree), will that be a problem for my visa? I plan on moving to a tier 3-4 city if that's of any help!

Any help or useful links would be greatly appreciated, I am trying my best to get as much information as I can before I head back to China!
