Every year, more than 200,000 English speakers get jobs teaching English abroad, and more than 90% have no prior teaching experience and no degree in education, or even English. In fact, up to 20% of them don’t even possess a four-year college degree! With up to 1 billion people taking some form of English class each year, the demand for native or fluent speakers to work as English teachers is virtually insatiable. From summer camps and kindergartens to public schools, language institutes and corporate training, English speakers with no prior background in professional English teaching are employed in more than 100 countries around the world.
A visa is simply a document (often in the form of a stamp in a passport) issued by a government that authorizes a foreign citizen to enter that government’s country for residency, tourism, education and/or work. In most cases you will receive a visa when you teach English abroad, but not always. There are many different types of visas and each government will have its own policies regarding visas and the ability of foreign citizens to enter that country for any of the aforementioned reasons. It is always important to understand what type of visa you will need to travel to any foreign country. The best way to learn about visa requirements to enter a certain country is to contact the embassy or consulate for that country in your home country. Embassy websites are typically an excellent source of information regarding visa requirements.
