Q: Do I need a TEFL certificate applying for teaching jobs?

Do most teaching jobs require a TEFL or not? Or just a BA degree will be sufficient for work visa?

To put it more to the point: You don't need it if you have proof of two years of experience in the related field. That could be a company recommendation letter, get it translated into Chinese if its in English.
