If you are a citizen of a country under a Visa exemption agreement with the Republic of Korea, you can participate in the ISS program without applying for a special visa since the duration of the ISS is a maximum of 4 weeks. Upon arrival, students will receive a 90-day tourist visa which is sufficient to join the program.
If you are from a country that requires a visa to enter Korea, a short-term study visa (D-2-8) may be required.
For details regarding visa requirements or application,
consult the South Korean embassy or consul in your home country to verify whether you will need a visa to enter Korea.
Please contact the ISS Office via e-mail in order to receive the necessary documents for your visa application.
Obtaining a visa can be time consuming and therefore we strongly recommend that students apply early.
