ESL positions in the UAE can be found in state-run schools, private academies, local businesses and international schools for expatriates. Those with an interest in business will certainly be welcome and may find this a great location in which to test their skills.

Salaries in schools and academies can be extremely competitive, especially when compared with European or Asian locations. This salary will also incur no income tax, leaving you with a disposable income with which to save or enjoy the sights of the country. As well as this, many schools will offer to provide accommodation, the style and quality of which is normally modern and luxurious. Other incentives such as paid holidays, health insurance and reimbursed flight costs make TEFL jobs in the United Arab Emirates an EFL teaching experience like no other.

With these many benefits it is obvious that the requirements for ESL teachers will also be high. Candidates for prospective jobs are expected to possess a degree, a strong EFL qualification and ideally some experience of teaching. Jobs can be found all year round, yet the majority start in September. Due to the lengthy process involved in obtaining your visa it is advisable to apply at least four months in advance. The school or academy will then be able to assist and advise you in the steps you must take to obtain your visa and work permit. It should be noted that it is impossible to visit the UAE in the hope of obtaining work, as all visas and documents must be arranged beforehand.

Your choice of TEFL job location within the UAE may seriously affect your experience. Dubai is certainly the most liberal of the larger cities, allowing shorts and swimming costumes to be worn on the beaches and in various other public places. It also home to amazing modern architecture and amenities to entertain and amuse. Yet it should be carefully noted that there are still many actions which are not permitted here. Public displays of affection deemed to be sexual in nature can lead to serious legal consequences. With this in mind, remember that other choices of location like Abu Dhabi are even more traditional, and whilst being home to many fantastic sights, are not in keeping with European ways.

For those willing to moderate their way of life in accordance with these restrictions, keen to experience the mixture of traditions and forward thinking which the country offers, and for those who are keen to work in well-run, reputable schools which offer amazing benefits, TEFL jobs in the United Arab Emirates are a fantastic opportunity.
