What is a TEFL / TESOL Course?

TEFL stands for ‘Teaching English as a Foreign Language’ and TESOL ‘Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages’ these two terms are interchangeable, they are both umbrella terms for courses which prepare you to teach English to non-English speaking people. Most people will use the term TEFL but TESOL is equally as recognised. Neither is better than the other as they just refer to the type of course! The important part is to make sure your course has good accreditation so that your certificate is well recognised and respected in all corners of the world! – Like ours are!o app settings and press "Manage Questions" button.

Visa Information

For you to get a residential visa and your schools to get the green light for you to work, there are a handful of acronymed permits that need to be approved including the KITAS, the RPTKA, the IMTA, and the Telex Visa. But those aren't for you to worry about. Teachers need only apply for their initial visa which we are going to bundle into the term KITAS. So what visa should I come to Indonesia on? You have a few options, Tourist Visa 30 If you know you are going to come to Indonesia for up to 30 days only then you can get a free Tourist Visa 30 but you must remember that you cannot extend this visa. Visa On Arrival (VOA) However we strongly recommend that you at least get the second option the Visa On Arrival (VOA) which is valid for 30 days and can be extended for a further 30 days. Requirements: Passport which must be valid 6 months from entry date, return flight ticket. How much is the fee? 35 USD (payable at the Visa counter at the airport), extension is 35 USD ​​ During those 60 days, you'll have ideally found a school to sponsor your KITAS. When you do, the process will go just like we described above. Because the KITAS visa for teachers in Indonesia can take up to 5 weeks to process, sometimes a school will have you apply for a temporary business visa so that you can work and stay in the country while your KITAS is processing. Major Pro Tip When entering into Indonesia on a tourist visa, Immigration might ask to see your "exit ticket" or "return flight". The excuse of "I'm planning to stay in Indonesia and look for a job" will not go over well, so you need a diversion. For $8.99, Best Onward Ticket provides you an onward ticket which is real and valid for as long as 48 hours. So now you have a ticket to say you're flying out of Indonesia and the immigration officers are satisfied to let you in.

Bachelor’s Degree A bachelor’s degree is very important to have if you plan to teach in Indonesia. The government have been strict recently on making sure that international teachers are educated to a high level, and bachelor’s degree is evidence of this. You’re probably wondering what degree you’ll need.. but don’t worry, a bachelor’s degree in any subject will suffice. Just make sure that you can get your hands on the original. Passport holders To be able to teach in Indonesia, you will need to have a passport from either: The United Kingdom, The United States, Ireland, Canada, South Africa, Australia, Or New Zealand. There is a lot of debate on the internet about whether you need to be a “native English” speaker” to be able to teach English as a foreign language. However, as the term “native” is ambiguous most countries have settled this debate by requiring one of these passports. There are some exceptions to this rule, but mostly, you will need one of these passports. Clear criminal background check You will also need to be able to provide a clear criminal background check in order to work as a teacher in Indonesia. You do not need this until you get a job but we VERY HIGHLY recommend getting one before you leave your country as it will be quicker. We will send you details of how to apply in your welcome pack.
