Living in South Korea

If you want a South Korea visa to migrate permanently to the country you can apply for permanent residence. There are two main pathways to a successful Korea visa application:

  • invest a large amount of money in the country; or
  • possess a specialist qualification in either, science, business, education, sports or art, demonstrated by a career in a distinguished company or the relevant prizes and accolades.

Working in South Korea

South Korea visa requirements for working permits are varied depending on the applicant’s qualifications and area of expertise. A long-term professional work visa in Korea entitles the applicant to apply for visas for their spouse and any dependent children under 18. Young people who have yet to start their careers can also work in the country under a working holiday scheme which is applicable for many nationalities.
