Life On Campus Fostering creative leaders with power of thinking
In order to study in Korea for more than 90 days, you need to apply for a D-2 student visa. A student visa can be obtained at Korean consulates, usually overnight. It can be extended here in Seoul without having to leave Korea.
The required application materials are subject to change without prior notice. We recommend you to visit the website of Immigration Office http://www.hikorea.go.kr before you go to apply for visa.
Note 1 : If you already received a C-3 visa (short-term permission for general purpose) instead of a D-2 visa, you must change your visa status within 30 days after arrival.
Note 2 : There are two types of Visas; one is single entry, the other is multiple entry. If you want to travel abroad during your exchange program at Sookmyung, we recommend a multiple entry type of D-2 visa. The embassy or consulate will issue you a single entry visa if you do not specifically request a multiple entry visa.
Note 3 : If you want to study the Korean language, you should apply for the D-4 visa.
