To teach English abroad, possessing a valid passport is an absolute necessity. Regardless of the destination country, a passport is the fundamental requirement for international travel and work. Typically, your passport must have a minimum of six months' validity remaining from your intended date of entry into a foreign country. To avoid any issues while overseas, it is highly advisable to have a passport with at least two years of validity. This ensures smoother travel and compliance with varying international entry requirements. If you are uncertain about the specific entry regulations for your destination country, consult with their embassy or visit their immigration website for accurate and up-to-date information.
