    Hello and thank you for contacting us.  The age limitation for teachers is usually tied to the ability to get a work permit in that some countries will not issue one after a certain age.  That being said, the more qualifications you have, the more likely this run can be bent. For Japan, the age is 65 but they have been known to increase that to 70.  For Vietnam, the official limit is 65 but becomes difficult for anyone 60+.  For most other countries, the age is 60 with China sometimes (but rarely) allowing up to 65.
