The International Educator License provides a five-year cultural exchange opportunity for Virginia students and international teachers. The International Educator License is a professional teaching license issued for no more than five years to an exchange teacher with citizenship in a nation other than the United States of America who is employed as a teacher in a Virginia public or accredited nonpublic school. To be issued the five-year, nonrenewable International Educator License, an individual serving as a cultural exchange teacher in Virginia must: (1) be employed by a Virginia public or an accredited nonpublic school; (2) hold non-United States citizenship and be a nonpermanent resident; and (3) meet the following requirements as verified by a state-approved, federally-designated Exchange Visitor Program: be proficient in written and spoken English; demonstrate competence in the appropriate academic subject area or areas by meeting the credential requirements for a qualified teacher in the exchange country; hold the United States equivalent of a baccalaureate degree or higher as determined by an approved credential evaluation agency; and complete at least two years of successful full-time teaching experience that enables the educator to fulfill a similar assignment in his home country or is comparable to those requirements for Virginia teachers.
