Understanding The E2 Visa Process In Korea

The entire teacher placement process lasts between 4-6 weeks.

The first step is to fill out the application form on our website. You should include your resume and photograph. You should also submit your documents via email. If you’re applying by email, you’ll need to let us know where you want to teach in Korea.

Once you have chosen a school and the school has made you an offer with a contract to review, we will need to send your qualification documents by express mail so we can submit to immigration. It’s best to use FedEx or DHL since they are quick and reliable.

Once we get all of your documents, including the signed teaching contract with the school, we’ll begin the E2 work visa process. Once that’s done, a Visa Issuance letter will be sent to you from the school. This process takes 7-10 days.

Next, you should visit the Korean Consulate in your country to get your visa stamp in your passport. If you don’t live near a Korean Consulate, you can mail your documents. Please use a reputable and reliable courier service.

After you receive your passport stamps you should book your flight to Korea. Once you arrive in Korea and are employed at the school, you will be reimbursed for your plane ticket.

We will pick you up at the airport and take you to your school.
