Can anyone tell me countries you know of where it's possible for foreign teachers to get tenure at the universities? And how difficult is it/ what kinds of requisites are there?

I am currently a PhD student with seven plus years of teaching experience. In the USA it all depends on the type of university you teach at. There are "tenure track" positions available, but they depend on other factors such as professional presentations, publications, type of research, as well as teaching style. Additionally, if you are selected to interview, the tenured faculty must determine if you are a good match to fill in a gap in their program.

My university just went through a faculty search and both hires were foreign with noticeable accents (South Korea and Turkey), but they were chosen for the rigor of their studies and their personalities. We focus more on teaching than research, although each faculty member has extensive publications. Other universities have more of a research bend and would have greater consideration on research efforts.
