Foreigner employed as a Divemaster?
« on: December 22, 2013, 03:31:23 AM »
In Thailand almost all the divemasters are foreigners. How about in the Phils? If one was certified, could one get a job as such? Would the pay be pinoy grade, or foreign grade? Wouldnt that be a cool seasonal job? Any comments?

Depending on the type of visa you hold, you could work.  IMHO the best visa for you would be a 13a, resident alien visa.  Since you are married to a Pinay she could request the 13a for you.  You would receive an ACR-I card (Alien Certificate of Registration)
