Our recruiting department chooses our teachers carefully.  Teaching English and living in a foreign country, while highly rewarding, can be a challenging experience, and it is not for everyone.  We are looking for dedicated people who, in addition to wanting a taste of adventure, are genuinely interested in the educational development of their students, and who are prepared for the excitement and challenges involved in living abroad.

If you think you meet our criteria and are interested in teaching at a professional school in southern Taiwan, we welcome your application. There are several hiring periods annually as shown below:

Visa Information


Before coming to Taiwan, you may need to apply for a VISITOR VISA.  A visitor visa is good for 60 days, which covers the amount of time it takes to apply for your resident visa and work permit. 

To apply for a visitor visa contact the TECO (Taiwan Economic and Cultural Office) in your area.  They will require the following documents:
· Passport valid for at least six months
· Two passport photos
· Proof of an air ticket departing Taiwan within 60 days
· Visitor Visa application and fee

In addition some TECO offices will ask for a bank statement showing funds sufficient to support you for a 60-day stay.

** Visa Exempt Entry for Canadians and Americans**


Canadian and American passport holders no longer need to apply for a visitor visa before coming to Taiwan.  Upon landing in Taiwan, citizens of these countries will be eligible to stay for up to 90 days, visa free.  KNS will then apply for your work permit.  Once we have secured your work permit (a three to four week process), we will assist you in obtaining a formal visitor visa, which can then be used to apply for your ARC (Alien Resident Certificate).  KNS assumes all costs involved in this process except for the price of the visitor visa.  For more information on visa exempt entry, please visit the Visa Services page of the TECO website here.
