When filling out the health check form you must be a truthful as possible. Within the first month or so after your arrival in Korea you will have to go to your local hospital and complete a health check. The check involves a blood test, urine test, eyesight test as well as measurements of your height and weight. The test will check for serious medical conditions such as HIV/AIDS, TBPE and drug use (INCLUDING CANNABIS). If you are unsure about your health we recommend that you visit your doctor and be tested in your home country. If there are any discrepancies between your health check form and the health screening in Korea, your visa may be revoked and you will be deported and possibly blacklisted (leaving you unable to enter Korea).

Make a photocopy of the information page of your passport, it can either be a colour or a black and white photocopy. The passport needs to be valid for at least 6 months at the time you apply for your visa. However, we advise you have at least 12 months remaining as renewing a passport from Korea can prove to be quite complicated.

Make a photocopy of your diploma and take the copy as well as your original diploma to be notarized by a public notary. We suggest you use the same public notary that you use to notarize your CRC and get both documents notarized at the same time.
Send the notarized copy of your degree certificate along with your original CRC to be verified at your nearest Korean embassy / consulate.
