What do I need and how can I get to Korea?
Since all programs last less than 90 days, a 90-day tourist/student VISA will be sufficient for the enrollment in all programs. All foreigners staying in Korea for over 90 days must obtain a Certificate of Alien Registration from the Seoul Immigration Office. Depending upon where you’re from, an entrance VISA for Korea may not be necessary. Citizens of U.S.A and most of European countries, a 90-day visa can be obtained relatively easily without the submittal of complicated documents. Please contact the Korean Embassy in your area to confirm what VISA documents are needed to enter Korea, and inquire about the process of obtaining the VISA.
