Visas for Korea
In order to work in Korea, foreigners are required to have a valid passport and the appropriate visa from a Korean embassy or consulate in their region. The company or school that is hiring you with gladly help you through this process. Work-related visas must be processed and issued outside of Korea. Recently there have been several cases of foreigners working in Korea without a proper visa. This is strictly prohibited and those who violate this law can face expulsion from Korea, and even possibly be fined or jailed.
Different Visas for Foreign Teachers in Korea
F-4 (Korean Residents Abroad) - This is the visa for Korean American/Canadians. If you have a Korean family member who’s name is on the Korean family registry, you can get an F-4 visa. This is easier than most other visas.
F-2 (Residence) - If you are married to a Korean, you can get this visa.
A-3 (Agreement) - We also call this the SOFA visa. If you have a family member who works for the US Army in Korea, this is the visa for you.
