Teaching English in Kyrgyzstan can be difficult, as foreigners may have a hard time obtaining a non-tourist visa. However, teachers who wish to travel to Kyrgystan to teach English may be able to do so through volunteer opportunities.
For teachers interested in teaching English, a TEFL certificate is always an asset.
