Travel & Teach - Brazil

Travel and Teach

Unusually for Latin America, Brazil relies heavily on very well educated locals to teach English. Recruiting foreign nationals to teach EFL occurs rarely, so you will not see many positions advertised worldwide in the EFL press, nor on the internet. It is also a bureaucratic nightmare. But despite this there should be ample work for EFL teachers. To gain this work you will most likely have to travel to Brazil to find work. The appropriate work visas will also be difficult to secure although it is easy to work unofficially and many do.  

Unless you have 2 years proven experience and a degree it will be almost impossible to gain a work permit. Even then, the process is a lengthy one. An employer can apply on your behalf for a temporary work visa although they are unlikely to embark on this rather time consuming course unless a long-term contract is offered. Crossing the border can renew tourist visas, which are valid for 6 months. It is wise to start the process by applying through the Brazilian Embassy.

Think about starting to look for work around February and you'll find that there are some very flexible contracts available.
