Working in Bolivia

Most paid work available in Bolivia is English teaching, as native speakers are in short supply. You will have a far better chance of finding work if you have some formal qualification, or at least some experience. Contact some language schools in advance to see if they are hiring teachers, or visit in person when you arrive – expect to get paid about $6 an hour. Some bilingual schools also hire native speakers to teach standard high school subjects such as maths or science.

Ask if the schools will help with your visa costs – the fees for getting a one year temporary residency are pricey, see work visas for more details.

Some of the larger hostels in Bolivia now offer free accommodation in exchange for working in the hostel – you’ll find info on their websites.
