Anyone know how he can go about trying to find work? I told him that I thought that it would be very difficult. Oh, he IS married to an Indonesian. Several things for your friend. If he is thinking having his wife sponsor him - DON'T, if he wants to work. As far as I know, you can't have both.
Let me know his qualifications - CV, Certificates, etc - and I might be able to find him legitimate work with SIB School of Language. You can email all the info to [email protected]

Actually it's not that difficult to get a job as an English teacher in the English schools if you have some kind of certificate to teach English or have the experience as you thought he might have. National Plus and International schools are a different matter.
An English school, such as mine and others, can offer a KITAS and visa, plus a decent salary for about 20 hours of teaching a week. Native speakers are considered valuable and schools do whatever they can to get them - if they have a need.
Have him send his info. I can't make any promises.
