APAX English is always looking for the best, brightest, and most capable English language teachers. If you think you have what it takes to join us, be sure to check that you are able to comply with Vietnamese governmental regulations.

  • Bachelor's (or higher) university degree certificate

  • CELTA / TESOL / TEFL certificate

  • Native English proficiency

  • National or state criminal background check

  • Vietnamese health check (obtained during training)

  • Valid passport from one of the following countries: United States of America, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, Australia, or New Zealand


APAX English will always provide the health check as part of the training process, and can assist in some cases with obtaining a criminal background check from Vietnam if obtaining a home check is not feasible. You must ensure that you are aware of the legalisation specifications for your country when it comes to working in Vietnam. For some nationalities, your embassy provides this service here in Vietnam. For others, you will have to legalise documentation with your foreign affairs entity in advance of arriving in the country. Most importantly your names on your documentation must be an exact match of the names on your passport. If this is not the case, you will either have to obtain an affidavit, or have them reissued. More information can be provided throughout the application process.
