TEFL jobs in Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic is a fascinating place with a rich culture to explore as well as the enviable weather and gorgeous natural surroundings.

Most teachers in the Dominican Republic teach on a tourist visa, but there are some schools who are willing to help their staff secure a work visa. British Citizens travelling to the Dominican Republic for tourism don’t need a visa. On arrival you will normally be granted a 30-day stay. This can be extended to 120 days by paying for an extension when you leave the country .

Where to find work in Dominican Republic

When it comes to finding a job, the easiest route is to contact schools in person once you’re in the country. Private Language Schools will hire year-round (with the exception of a low period around Christmas) so you can pretty much just turn up and try to make some contacts. For more highly paid jobs at international schools that specify they want teachers with a degree and a TEFL, they might be willing to interview a teacher on Skype before they travel. While it isn’t always necessary to have a degree to teach here, one thing that is useful is speaking a little bit of Spanish, so if you can brush up on your school Spanish classes, this will put you in good stead for making a good impression.
