Question) When sending my visa documents to Korea, which one is BEST to use?
Answer) From North America, we recommend FEDEX. FEDEX usually takes 3 days to deliver to Korea. However, DHL and UPS aren’t bad at all. Please be aware that even though Purolator says it will take 3 days to get to Korea, it’s generally 1-3 days late.
