A BIG HELLO!

We understand that moving abroad is a big step to take because we have all done it ourselves! You may be 6,454 miles away right now but we can assure you, we are there for every mile of your journey from start to finish! The process can be a little confusing but you don't need to worry, we have a strong team of happy people who are waiting to help you.

During application it is important to understand that you will need to go through the following processes in order to legally work for us. Those with IRE passports can normally have their documents stamped in their respective embassy in Hanoi, provided they are from the country of origin. IRE citizens must come to Hanoi as there is no alternative in HCMC. This means that in most cases, candidates from IRE can do the majority of admin once inside Vietnam.

The exception is if an IRE passport-holder has a document from RSA or UK. In this case, the candidate should aim to have it stamped at their embassy. If the embassy (or CG) refuses, the candidate will need to undergo the applicable UK or RSA process using the link below. Please note that if your documentation has been issued from outside of your home country, it's wise to check in with us about procedure for support.

PREPARING YOUR DOCUMENTS

INVESTMENT

The big question that hovers over everyone's head, how much does it cost? The truth is that you will need to save a little before embarking on this journey. To help you understand the investment, we have broken everything down for you in steps, please click on the following link to find out more.

STEP 1

YOUR DEGREE CERTIFICATE

You have two options with your Degree Certificate.

Option 1: Have your Degree Certificate Notarized in Ireland then drive to Dublin to have it legalized ready to come to Vietnam.

Option 2: Bring your original Degree Certificate to Vietnam to have it legalized at the Irish Embassy in Hanoi. Please understand that you can ONLY use this service in Hanoi. If you are located in Ho Chi Minh, you can pay and post your documents to Hanoi.

Please note that if you plan to get your documents legalized at the embassy or consulate in Vietnam, you do not need to get an authentication before coming over.

STEP 2

YOUR TEFL/TESOL/CELTA

You can obtain a TEFL, TESOL or CELTA certificate online through many different companies. The prices range from $40 to over $2,000 so please choose your course carefully. Please note that if your TEFL/TESOL/CELTA qualification is NOT provided by an Irish company, you will not be able to have it legalized in Ireland. This can be a costly and time consuming error to make as you will need to send your qualification to the UK. If you have any questions about obtaining this qualification, please us the contact form via the link below or speak to us directly using the live chat.

STEP 3

YOUR POLICE CHECK

It is free to obtain a police check in Ireland! Please be aware that it will need to be no older than 6 months upon arrival in Vietnam.

To apply for your police check, please follow the link below.

STEP 4

THE LEGALIZATION PROCESS

Option 1; You will need to travel to the Legalization office in Dublin with your Notarized Degree, original TEFL/TESOL/CELTA and original Police Check.

 

Option 2; Bring all three original documents to Vietnam to hand in or post to the Embassy in Hanoi. All documents to be legalized must have been obtained in Ireland by an Irish company/faculty. Please go to stage 6 to find out more.

STEP 5

THE EMBASSY OF IRELAND, HANOI

41A Ly Thai To,

Hoan Kiem,

Hanoi

Tel; (84-24) 39743291

Opening Times; Monday to Friday 9am-12pm

(Afternoons are reserved for prior appointments only)

STEP 6

THE AFFIDAVIT

Because of Vietnamese government regulation, it is crucial that all of your documentation - degree, TEFL, and criminal background check - match your passport name exactly, including middle names. If this is not the case, you will require either a reissuing of documentation or, if this is too costly or not feasible, an affidavit. For most nationalities, an affidavit will be cheaper than the cost of reissuing a degree. If you are still waiting for your TEFL certificate to be issued, we strongly recommend informing the TEFL company that it must be an exact match of your passport name.

STEP 7

CURRICULUM VITAE

During the application process we will ask you to provide us with an up to date CV with appropriate references. Please highlight any relevant teaching experience within your application and come to the interview prepared with any questions that you may have. If you have any questions in the meantime, take a look at our FAQ page.
