General Permit Information

Korea has bilateral Working Holiday Visa programs with twenty-one countries/region worldwide (and a unilateral Working Holiday Program for the U.K). (May 06, 2015)

These agreements are reciprocal in nature in order to provide Koreans the same opportunities overseas that are enjoyed by nationals from participating countries/region visiting Korea.

The main purpose of this visa is to allow you to have an extended holiday while supplementing your funds with short-term work in Korea.

This is a one-time only visa and allows tremendous flexibility for you to immerse yourself in Korean culture.

Working Holiday Permit Holders are also permitted to study at a private educational institution (=Hakwon) during their stay.

You may leave and re-enter Korea as many times as you wish during your 12 month (maximum) stay.
