Everyone at Destination TEFL is dancing a happy dance as we share the news that BALI IS OPEN!
After a nearly 4 month hold on the B-211 visas, the Indonesian authorities have announced that any traveller holding a B-211 visa will be allowed to enter Indonesia. The B-211 visa is a SINGLE entry e-Visa for business visits which will allow you stay up to 60 days. This visa can be extended a maximum of 4 times. Each extension 30 days. This will allow all trainees enough time to secure a teaching position (min eligibility criteria applies), and then change their visa to the relevant working visa in-country.
ONLY 4 places left on the 3 May 2021 course! Book your place now to start your adventure.
We have seen an increase in the Digital Nomads (degreed and non-degreed) teaching online in Indonesia. These nomads will need to reapply for B-211 visas every 6 months.
Does the idea of teaching online and being a digital nomad appeal to you? Find out about being a digital nomad or remote worker here:
ARRIVAL IN INDONESIA:
All trainees need to travel to Jakarta, Indonesia for a compulsory 5 x 24-hour (4 to 5 days) quarantine.
TRAVEL TO BALI
On completion of the compulsory 5 day quarantine, all trainees will be able to book a low-cost domestic flight from Jakarta to Bali.
While there is a cost for quarantine and the visa, it should be noted that living costs such as accommodation are cheaper during this time while Bali is not open to general tourists, so the costs are balanced out. Full visa support and information on arrival to Indonesia is supplied to those who sign up for the course.
Are you not yet ready to travel abroad due to the pandemic?
Destination TEFL is pleased to announce that our VIRTUAL COURSES are back due to popular demand!
If you’d like to teach online, then doing a virtual course, rather than an online course, is a great option, as it puts you in the shoes of your future students, so you can fully understand what they will be experiencing. Our virtual TEFL course includes a 20-hour module on ‘the mastery of online teaching’ and you’ll learn the techniques involved in teaching online, as well as many activities for both the virtual and onsite classroom. You will get an opportunity to teach REAL students in the virtual classroom!

Perhaps you’d like to consider our HYBRID course.
This offers the best of both worlds: Do the virtual course now, and begin teaching online. Then, when you are ready, add on out TEFL Extension module which includes 2 weeks onsite in Siem Reap, Cambodia (Degree holders can choose to add on this module in Bali). This will upgrade your TEFL certificate from 120-hours to 140-hours, as well as additional accreditation. It will also give you practice in the real (not virtual) classroom, as you teach local Khmer students onsite. You’ll get to enjoy a cultural tour, fantastic onsite accommodation, breakfast and job placement assistance.
Our onsite courses in Siem Reap are up and running!
Did you know that Cambodia is the ONLY country in SE Asia where you can LEGALLY teach without a bachelor’s degree?
Yes, you need to quarantine on arrival in Cambodia, but it’s worth it to start your teach abroad adventure. Full details of the visa and quarantine process will be sent on enquiry, and Destination TEFL is able to provide the paperwork for you to obtain a business visa to enter Cambodia, as general tourists are still not allowed entry.
