You can definitely apply to teach English in the region of Asturias even if your passport is nearing its expiry date, but here are a few caveats to it. While you can certainly start the application process, you must renew your passport before you embark on your exciting journey. Many countries, including Spain, require your passport to be valid for at least six months beyond your planned departure date. Visa processes can take time, and having an up-to-date passport will help avoid any possible delays or complications.

It opens doors to deeper connections with locals, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in a region where you’ll be spending a good part of your life.

Every day brings a fresh set of challenges and triumphs as you watch your students grow in confidence and competence.

But the learning isn’t one-way. You’ll learn just as much from your students as they do from you. They’ll introduce you to the local customs, traditions, and the differences between English and Spanish. It’ll surely be a rewarding experience for both parties!
