Do I have to be vaccinated to teach abroad?

We recommend reviewing the vaccination guidelines for teachers in the country where you would like to teach prior to applying for any jobs.

In most countries, teachers working in public schools are required to be fully vaccinated (two doses) with a vaccine approved by that country.

Note that teachers may have different vaccination requirements than other professions active in that country, so look specifically for guidelines regarding teachers.

As Teach Away is a recruitment platform, we do not set requirements regarding vaccinations for teachers looking to teach abroad and that is why we encourage teachers to do independent research into the destination of their choice.
