Please note that the South Korean visa application process is extremely meticulous and the South Korean authorities will not grant your visa unless all your documents are exactly as per the list below:
Step 1: Application screening
Before any documents are collected, simply send us a copy (latest) of your resume with a full length photo for approval. Once that first step is complete and approval is granted, the next is for you to pull together a number of documents required by the South Korean government to process your application to teach. Our partners will provide you with guidance in pulling together the required documents.
Step 2: Schedule Interview (once we have received and submitted ALL required docs)
We will schedule an interview with the school. This interview will be done via Skype or telephonically. Should the interview be successful, we will send you a contract on behalf of the school. You need to sign this and send back a copy to us via e-mail. Any position will only be confirmed on signing of the Employment contract and receiving the program fee.
We will then send you the address of the school that all your documents need to be sent to via courier. All courier costs of these documents will be your responsibility. We are not responsible for any loss of documentation. We strongly suggest you use a reliable courier company such as DHL, FedEx, UPS or TNT.
Step 3: Visa and Payment
Visa: Our partners will send you your visa number. You need to take this number to the South Korean Embassy in your country and apply for your visa. Once they send you the visa number, you need to apply at the South Korean Embassy within 48 hours.
Payment: Payment will be made once you have received placement confirmation. Placement confirmation is in the form of your signed school contract. You need to make full payment before receiving your visa number. If you applied online, payment can be made via electronic funds transfer.
Step 4: Flights booked
Once your visa has been finalised your flights will be arranged by our partners and details will be sent to you. Schools will either pay for your flights up front or the full amount will be reimbursed to you. Before departure we will provide you with a full final briefing with all arrival details and procedures. Upon arrival you will be taken to your accommodation.
