When You Arrive in Vietnam

As an expert in organizing cultural programs in Vietnam, TTV's TEFL internship will give you the opportunity to spend an extended length of time living and working in Vietnam, while also racking up those hours of real teaching experience. Here's what you get:

  • A reputable internship setup for you 3.5 - 4 months teaching in Vietnam and heaps of practical teaching experience
  • In-country support + local support This is where you'll see the benefit of travelling on an internship program. TTV are there to support you throughout your placement. You'll also have a local contact at your school to help you with any issues
  • Monthly spending allowance You'll receive a monthly allowance of 6million Dong + a further 6million Dong bonus from your school at the end of your internship. This allowance will be prorated (e.g. if you were to work half a month, for example, you'll receive half a month's allowance). It's important to note that the cost of living in Vietnam is considerably lower than that in Western parts of the world - a bottle of mineral water can cost less than 10,000 Dong
  • Accommodation You'll have a private room in a shared apartment with your fellow interns.
  • Comprehensive one-week orientation in Vietnam TTV will run you through the essentials of living and teaching in Vietnam, including in-depth presentations and workshops to ensure you're ready to start teaching in Vietnam. TTV will also provide you with all of your meals during this period
  • 2 days of practical TEFL training When you arrive in Vietnam, i-to-i will provide you with the 20-hour Classroom Course during your orientation program - this way you can be sure that these essential, practical skills stay fresh in your mind!
  • Fun Vietnamese lessons You'll have conversational Vietnamese lessons during your orientation to give you basic language skills to enjoy day-to-day life in Vietnam
  • Explore Vietnam - On arrival in Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh, you'll go on a tour of the city with our TTV partners! After your tour you'll also have one free afternoon to explore - use your time to discover yummy Vietnamese street food and explore the bustling Asian streets - or if you'd prefer you can join our staff on a visit to a local market. If you're still not tired then get ready for the evening entertainment ‘Vietnam style’, it's the perfect chance to get to know the other interns (and make some good friends)!
  • Airport pick up and transfers to your school
  • Visa assistance TTV will help arrange your visa.
  • A network of new friends You'll be joined by interns from the USA, UK, Canada, Ireland, Australia, South Africa, New Zealand and Europe, and you'll also definitely be placed with at least one other intern so you're not on your own - unless you want to be!

Important Visa Information:

You'll enter Vietnam on a 3 month single-entry visa, for which TTV will send you a letter of invitation from the department of immigration which you print off and bring with you.

You'll present this letter upon arrival and pay between US-$45-$50 in cash for your landing visa.

After 3 months, your visa will be extended in-country through sponsorship by your TTV program in association with the Ministry of Education and each participating school. The visa extension and work permit cost is US $350. This is payable in cash on arrival in Vietnam during orientation week.

You’ll also need to budget US$150 - $200 to have your documents notarised in your home country before arriving into Vietnam.
