Hi. The Maldives is one of the few countries I am interested in working in at the moment. I would love some information about getting work, visas, life style, anything really would help. I have a CELTA, 4 years teaching, and finishing a masters in TESOL.

Thanks for any help. Smile

Hello there,

The Maldives is very similar to Phuket, Thailand in terms of EFL work available. Very touristy and very low wages for EFL teachers. You might find teaching work in a hotel (there are hundreds of them around) but don't expect any savings. Good luck! Smile

Hello there,

The best way to find a job teaching English in the Maldives is by knocking on hotel/resort doors in the island and circulating your resumes....that's what I did decades ago before coming to Thailand and it worked for me. Good luck!

I have a mate that did a stint for a hotel out there a couple of years back.

He might be able to give you some insight.
PM me and I'll give you his email.

Pay is around $1,000/Month + free room and board for full timers at high end resorts/spas etc..... Part time work can be found on an hourly rate but networking is important.

An outfit in the Maldives ran an ad here at Dave's toward the end of January and reposted it about a week ago. EFL Educator, what is the deal on visas? Can one find enough work as a freelancer to make it and also deal with visas?

If you can get it, not bad pay for that area at all.
