Teaching English in Qatar

A modern and prosperous state, Qatar is quite popular for having rich assets of oil and gas. It is home to the third-largest gas reserves in the world and the nation’s per capita GDP also ranks among either the highest or second-highest globally. The wealth and commercial prominence of this otherwise tiny nation has assisted Qatar in making history by being given the rights to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup, the first for an Arab country to do so.

Qualified English Teachers can expect a salary in the range of $1,600-$4,000 tax-free income along with additional benefits including health insurance, furnished housing, and to-and-fro airfare from the place of their teaching assignment.

Although Qatar is comparatively a smaller country than Saudi Arabia and not a preferred teaching destination for outsiders, it has a competitive job market. First-time teachers will think that it's quite difficult to get recruited here but it's anything but an unimaginable assignment, yet inclination is driven to the more experienced local English speaking teachers who have advanced certifications. A regular prerequisite likewise incorporates a TEFL certification.

The process of advance hiring is followed for the position of foreign English teachers with the procedure of visa being completed before their departure to their final destination. A total of 1-3 months is required for the whole interview and visa process to get completed. Teachers are also required to pass an HIV and physical test before they are given a visa while in many cases a criminal background check and verification of academic transcripts are also conducted.

Please note that English teaching jobs in Qatar are usually concentrated around the capital city of Doha.
