How can I pay for my TESOL TEFL training in Vietnam?

You can pay for your TESOL TEFL training in Vietnam with AVSE-TESOL by using one (or a combination) of 5 different methods: cash, Western Union, bank to bank transfer, credit (or debit) card, or PayPal. If there is another payment method you would prefer to use, feel free to run your idea by us and if it’s feasible, we’ll go with it.

Cash: You can pay in cash for your TESOL TEFL course if you’re already in Vietnam by making an over the counter payment at our campus located at 1300 Quang Trung Street, (Ward 14) Go Vap District, Ho Chi Minh City. Our office hours are:

Monday to Friday
8:00am – 12:00pm, 2:00pm – 9:30pm

Saturday & Sunday
7:00am – 11:30am, 2:00pm – 7:30pm


Western UnionYou can transfer funds directly to our company in Ho Chi Minh City to cover your TESOL TEFL training in Vietnam, using Western Union. Transactions with Western Union can be completed online or at any one of their 500,000+ agents spread across 200+ countries.

Almost certainly you will incur a fee with a Western Union transaction. The good news is the fee tends to be much lower than you’d incur with most other payment methods. For this reason alone, AVSE-TESOL loves Western Union.

Bank to bank transfer: You can pay for your TESOL TEFL training in Vietnam by transferring funds directly to our Vietnamese bank account (Sacombank) or our Australian bank account (Westpac) from anywhere in the world. Both Sacombank and Westpac are among the world’s most respected commercial banks.

Fees for a bank to bank transfer vary markedly and it’s wise to know exactly what the impost will be. Your bank can give you an exact figure, allowing you to make an informed decision about whether to use this payment option. Deposits to our bank account in Vietnam and our bank account in Australia need to be in local currency. The Managing Director of AVSE-TESOL, Peter Goudge, can help you with a currency conversion.

PayPalCovering the fees associated with your TESOL TEFL training in Vietnam using PayPal is without question both quick and simple. PayPal supports payments in 100+ currencies and is available to any person with an email address or a cell-phone number. With PayPal, you can transfer funds anywhere in the world, in a matter of seconds.

It’s important to note that one way or another you & AVSE-TESOL will incur transaction fees if you choose to make a payment using PayPal; and the fees tend to be on the hefty side – around 4% (+/-) per transaction.

Credit or debit card: Paying for your TESOL TEFL training in Vietnam with your credit or debit card is another quick & easy option. The payment process has to be done in person and involves physically swiping your card through a Point of Sale (POS) device in the reception area of the training centre. AVSE-TESOL is equipped to accept payments from all major credit and debit cards, except American Express.

Regardless of how you choose to pay for your TESOL TEFL training in Vietnam, the Managing Director of AVSE-TESOL, Peter Goudge, is readily available to provide guidance and assistance – especially when it comes to transaction fees. You can contact Peter Goudge by email:
