      If you have a TEFL qualification but not a degree, can you still get a job in Saudi Arabia?

      Thank you for the quesiton.  The short and simple answer to that question is, unfortunately, no.  Employers will not hire a teacher without a degree (condition of employment) and it is needed for the visa.  For Saud Visa information, this is a useful bit of information from U.S. State Dept. http://photos.state.gov/libraries/saudi-arabia/768382/yoderja/guide.pdf
