Working in Korea
Professional career requirements (Lower education)
- A college degree or certificate(s)
- An Apostile criminal background check from your home country.
- A local Criminal background check in Korea
(You can get this at any local police office in Seoul after you got your F-4 visa).
- A standard health check at the local clinic in Korea (This is mandatory for every Korean citizen that is
working at a company). Usually every year the company will ask you to do this standard health check but
this can be different and depends per company.
- Any type of visa that allows you to work and stay in Korea for at least 6 months. The F-4 visa is the most
common visa for foreign overseas Koreans and allows adoptees to stay and work in Korea for at least 3
- A professional English or Korean resume. Usually an English resume will be enough.
- A valid local bank account however this depends on which bank the company is connected with for
example If the company is connected to Woori bank and you have Kookmin bank then there is a high
chance that the company will tell you to open a Woori bank account. The main reason is convenience and
probably more beneficial for the company.
