    Anyone who is serious about moving to another country - even temporarily, would invest the time and expend the effort to research the basics about that country. Bhutan is one of the least visited nations in the world. It's extremely difficult to travel there as a tourist, or at least it was when I looked in to visiting a decade ago. At that time they had a required per diem meaning that tourists were required to spend a minimum of $250.00 every day, on top of their accommodation and travel expenses. Practically every country that allows people to come and teach English sets three basic requirements for applicants: The candidate must have a minimum of a Bachelor's Degree issued by an accredited university in a country where English is the major or official language; the candidate must pass a background check at the federal level in his or her home country to prove that they don't have a criminal record of any kind; the candidate must submit to a health check including a full medical examination as well as a drug test. In some cases, only native speakers of English are accepted, but in others, people who speak English as a second language are permitted to teach it. Few Bhutanese have ever been out of their country, so they don't have anything to compare life in their country to. Dzongkha is the main spoken language, but there are several others. It is not an easy place to try to live, travel, or work, but if you really want to try, you'll need to actually put some effort in to it.
